While shopping for lumber recently, I was trying to find some boards without knot holes. It’s nearly impossible. After staring at them, I started seeing shapes. I’ve always liked to look at clouds and find shapes. What do YOU see in the knot holes below? (keep it clean please)
Last week when I went to Tickled Pink, I picked up this table:
I will be using it in my kitchen.
I picked up this letter last week. I just couldn’t resist it. You can see the table is in pretty rough shape.
The table came with one leaf. This is an old table, and seems to be hand made, possibly oak. My question to you is what would you do with it. I am thinking about stripping the top and staining it, leaving the rest of it white (ish). The chairs I will be using are similar to this:
I’m not sure if I will paint them or leave them stained. As you can tell, I’m pretty clueless as to what I want to do.
So, help me out. If you need to see what my kitchen looks like, check out my kitchen makeover from last fall/winter. Don’t forget to tell me what you think the knots resemble.
