Mission Accomplished

This weekend's trip was centered around one purpose: buying a dinning room table. We moved into our condo four years ago, and we have been looking for a dinning room table ever since. We had several near purchases over the years, but nothing quite perfect enough to invest in. One Saturday, we were eating at a restaurant in Chelsea Market, NY and fell in love with the restaurant's tables... They were thick slabs of reclaimed wood on metal welded legs.

After doing a bit of research, we found out that the tables were made by a company in VT called Vermont Farm Table, that builds their tables out of wood recovered from old Vermont barns. The concept of the company, along with the unique look of their tables, won us over -- so we drove to Vermont to talk to the owner, Dustin, who would be hand crafting our table.

He couldn't have been nicer, and with the help of his iPad, he walked us through all of our custom options, and showed us pictures of beautiful but dilapidated VT barns where the wood came from.

We decided to go with a rich, golden reclaimed Pine, and should get the table in 5-6 weeks... after so many years of looking, the relief of finding "the one" was well worth the 4.5 hr trip. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
