Fence Board Table

A short while back, I told you about my huge chalkboard.
It was made from a tabletop.
I wanted to show you what we did with the rest of the table.
It now looks like this:

It used to look like this:

My sweet hubby took off the tabletop, and framed the
remainder with old fence board 2x4s.

Then he put the fence boards on, to replace the tabletop.

He cut the ends off, to make it all even.
(Don’t be checking out my hot hubby 🙂

Then he framed around the existing table legs.

This is the top, complete.

Then we mixed half water, half white paint.

Brushed the white-wash across the whole table.

 And now it looks like this:

We like the old fence board table much better now.

 I have been having trouble with uploading photos,
until tonight.  What’s up with blogger?

    Great Job! Amazing the right ideas and know how and you can do anything, help from the hubby doesn't hurt. I have to do all projects by myself. Not his thing. I'm boarding my ceilings front to back of house all living areas, not bedrooms.

  8. Fabulous! What a great idea, using the existing table.

    That was a heck of an idea! just love it! He does have some talent though, I'm not sure just anyone could pull this off and make it look that nice. I know I couldn't!

    Great for outside. Reminds me of a table from the 1920s. I like it a lot. Hope you'll stop by and see our upholstery ideas. Jane F.

  23. It looks great – and so does hubby 🙂 I love the rough texture of it and it just looks so rustic but refined too.
