For probably four or five years, Chad and Nicole have been planning a dining room table that Chad is going to build. They’ve drawn it and measured and planned. They’ve talked about the wood they will use and the design they will use.
They had an old coffee table in the living room that Nicole had painted a few times and right before I got there for Christmas, she was going to throw it away but Chad said he knew someone who would take it so . . it was gone.
Then they decided to make a coffee table that would be a mock up of sorts for the dining room table. They measured and they looked at other coffee tables. Nicole knew that she wanted it a bit higher than most coffee tables. They came up with a plan and Chad picked up the wood to make it.
They posted these pictures online last night.
Isn’t it gorgeous? Being a mom, I said “Don’t let Addie color on it and don’t you leave glasses sitting on it!” Typical Chad . . he said “If it gets messed up, all I have to do is sand it down and refinish it!”
I’m so proud of him and love seeing him do things that he enjoys so much.
