Phase one of table hack complete

Phase one  is done. We cut up my old dining table and installed parts of it at table height in the dining room as a bar/sideboard/shelf thing. It's NOT done yet....but here are some pictures of the installation...

We cut the table top into thirds. Each side is going to be a shelf. The middle section is going to be a test board for phase 2..... the legs were also cut and used as shelf supports. 


here is when we were dry fitting the monster... it's 12 feet long... 

and here we are today. It's even. It's installed. Into studs even. After Thanksgiving we will begin phase 2. 

Phase two involves painting out the legs white and stripping the table top and restaining  it a lighter maple color to match the kitchen.

well, we're going for useful right now. I think I'm going to like it when it's done- painted/stained and such. Right now it's kind of dark. I needed it for Thanksgiving this year I am doing a buffet for the family- this is where I am putting the food!

Have a great Thanksgiving Colleen!
