Ever stumbled upon something that you never knew you always wanted? It happened to me the moment I walked into Restoration Hardware while registering for our wedding. There it was the most gorgeous farmhouse table this southern girl had ever seen! Pretty sure I even dreamed about it. And YES, I did add it to the registry. Shocking, I’m sure 🙂
Sad to say, it did not arrive at our doorstep along with the wine glasses and Vietri plates. BUT just a few months after the wedding, something better….my hubby made one! Yep, that’s right…he was just driving past an old pile of wood one day:
True Confession: I didn’t believe him! I was mentally gearing up for a lot of encouraging one-liners and positive affirmations, should he realize that it was, in fact, impossible. BUT…after a few late nights in the garage and LONG afternoons spent with the sander, it was ready (even personalized with a sweet little note written on the underside for me.)
Still makes me smile everytime I pass it and reach out my hand to feel its softness just ONE more time.
