It started in July. The plans. My naive mind thought it could happen in a months time. No, I knew it would probably take a bit longer because things just do….take longer than expected. But I didn’t think it would take this long. Here we are in November. But it’s finished. Well mostly. We’re still waiting on our last bench that will go on the other wall. It’s top is finished and the steel for the base is in the hands of the amazing welder (my brother) but we just need a few more inches of steel to finish it up.

The plans for this one changed so much over the course of these past months. That’s the cause behind the extended timeline but I am happy with the way it turned out.

We ended up needing to do a very custom shape and size for our weird, small dining room so a basic farmhouse table (easy) was out of the question.

My darling husband was up for a project to make it look custom and something a bit more exciting than just 2×4’s.

I think he succeeded. He worked hard on this one (in his spare time-ha!) Boy do I love this man.

Someday soon when we get over the initial newborn shock we will take the steel legs to get powder coated black but I didn’t want to wait any longer! I was getting tired of sitting in camp chairs!

I love it!

The benches are made of some beautiful maple and the table wood is sycamore taken from trees from the Brigham City temple grounds.  But don’t get too excited, they weren’t sacred trees as they were removed before it was dedicated. 🙂 Haha.

A huge thank you again to my amazing brother the welder who took those straight steel pieces and somehow turned them in to that! Beautiful!

  • Wow cuz! That looks amazing! So beautiful.
    Ok so I have no way of finding out when you have the baby…! Excited for you!
    And I need to add that the stomach bug hit our house two weeks ago. It was awful. I think I now have more anxiety resulting from it. 🙁 ugh! Luckily it’s over and done with. Ollie got the throwing up and bowels and then I got the bowel part. Luckily no throwing up for me. I will consider that a miracle!

    • Thanks Carly! I will try to post fairly soon after he’s here! I am sorry to hear about the bug hitting your house. Such an inevitable part of this mortal life. I think after a few weeks or even months of being healthy again you will look back and think, “ya, we made it through alright, I’m alright, everyone is alright.” It’s still too fresh for you. At least that’s what I’ve found. Now that it’s been almost 2 months since our spout that’s how it’s been for me. My anxiety has decreased significantly. Love you.
