I got the table put together today! It looks so amazing in the space!
I had finished getting the base put together yesterday, but realized I couldn’t attach it to the top because I needed my own screws. I knew that, but somehow forgot about it while I was working on painting and putting together the base. Hubby had some errands to run yesterday evening, so he ran by the store and got the screws I needed so I could finish. It’s frustrating because it only took me about 15 minutes to attach the top, but it is now completely together and I absolutely love it!
But, HOLY HELL, that thing is heavy! Even with both Hubby and I flipping it to move it into place, it was difficult. Yikes! I’m really not going to want to move it too often. At least I know it is going to hold up really well.
The top still needs to be stained, but I won’t be doing that until I’m ready to stain all the counters. I have it basically in the space that it will be used so you can kind of see how it will all work together. I’m really glad I opted to go with a table and not a fixed cabinet as it would have really closed off the space and made it feel really claustrophobic.
I still have to work out the specific designs for each cabinet so I can start putting together a materials list. I’ve been kind of dragging my feet on that because I’m still not entirely sure what I’m doing there, but I’m at the point where I really can’t procrastinate on that part anymore.
But, I have a table!! Have I said I adore my table?
