Don't you love the vacuum in the background? I was getting ready for a showing when I took these photos. I didn't even notice the vacuum until I started writing this post. I added the botanical prints at the beginning of the year. I decided that having them hung up and finished would be easier to move that stored away in various places in the basement. I love the finished look they give to the space. Remember this? I bought it back in January of 2010. It now looks like this. I finished painting and distressing in back in July last year. I am still waiting to find something to line the back with before I call it complete. I love all the storage it created!My goal is to find a lovely farm table that I wouldn't have to keep covered all the time. This table is a very large cherry gate leg table. The top is damaged and the legs make it difficult to sit around, but it works and until I find the perfect table it stays.
My mother made the tablecloth for me years ago. The table is so long and so wide that no one makes a covering to fit. To give you an idea the dough bowl in the middle of the table is 28 inches long and 16 inches wide. So we always have room for company!
