Hey there everyone!! My oh my!! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that waaaayyyy back in JULY, I posted my new dining table, right after getting it built! I was BEYOND excited to have built a Knockoff West Elm Emmerson Dining Table, my Dad and I spent two days getting it built, it was just perfect, we hand planed it, sanded it to a buttery finish…it was time for me to distress and stain it…but I left it sitting in his shop…all this time!! Why do you ask? Well, honestly, because I wanted it to look JUST like my inspiration piece, the West Elm Emmerson Dining Table, but I was sooooo afraid I was not going to be able to pull off the ‘old wood’ look that I wanted, so instead of testing stains for a few days and knocking it out that same week…I let it sit…and sit…and sit some more!! Sometimes I make myself soooo angry!! I do not understand why I get scared and won’t just go for it, I will put it off, and put it off, until all the sudden, one day I jump in knee-deep and just do it, why do I have to procrastinate for days, weeks, or even months before jumping in?? I may never know…but what I do know is that I LOVE my new table!!
I am THRILLED that I FINALLY finished it!! Now I have a blank slate here in the dining room and I can’t wait to bring so many DIY projects to this room!! Luckily, you can’t see the absolute mess behind me that I created making this room a blank slate! Let’s just get another look at this table shall we!! Hehe!!
