A few months ago, Shane decided he was going to build us a dining room table. I was so excited to have an actual dining room for the first time in my adult life! Not to mention we were hosting my family from Texas for Christmas so this was going to be perfect. Our dining room was kind of an eye sore before to be totally honest and the previous owners painted it purple. It was an empty room for about the first year that I used as a home gym, but we always knew we would eventually use it properly.
He did an AMAZING job with our table and it was really fun to decorate this room with it being the focal point. We just found the perfect light fixture that goes well with the ones we installed during our kitchen remodel and it totally elevated the space. The final touch we still need to add is curtains and the room will be complete. Here’s look at where we have spent countless hours now with friends and family breaking bread and clinking glasses.
Shane is very handy when it comes to DIY projects and wood work & wait til you see the backsplash he did in our kitchen. He built our floating shelves for our home bar and half bath too, but this table is a real showstopper. We hired a welder to create the steel base and had them powder coat it in matte black. The wood for the table top is from a local wood yard and was actually from one of the white oak trees the city removed for the new Bullstreet District. I love that we will always have a piece of Columbia with us everywhere we go.
