{is it just me?}

or were someone's measurements a little off?

I ordered this table a few months ago, I think, and my parents decided they wanted to buy it as our wedding present. I honestly didn't care if Santa Clause or the Keebler Elf brought it to me I just wanted a solid wood farmhouse table, and I wanted it bad.

Turned out perfect{for a giant}, now all we have to do is paint it{and saw off the legs}and stain the top. It cracks me up to walk into the kitchen an see this thing because the legs are 36" and even 6'4" Jeremy looks like a 4 year old sitting in my white chairs at that table. I will have to post pictures of us sitting at this table before we fix it as a before and after. But notice my little white table...it looks like a kids table next to that giant thing.

Guess my do-it-myself projects aren't ending just because the wedding ended. Now if my plant-it-myself project will ever grow we will have basil, dill, cucumbers and peppers. But at the rate I'm killing the hydrangea I don't think stuffed pepper and cucumber salad are in my near future.

  1. What are you gonna do about that too tall table?

  2. We are going to get someone to cut the legs off to the right size, we know someone who can do carpentry so hopefully it's not a big deal.

  4. I'm not saying it won't I just think it is funny that he made it so tall. I am just ready to get it the right height so I can paint it.

  5. You could always use barstools - they are the right height.
