One Man's Junk.....IS Another Man's Treasure

After twenty plus years of marriage, it becomes difficult to buy any sort of gift for a spouse.

This was the dilemma David and I both found ourselves in when shopping for Christmas this past December.

Being the practical people we are, we overspent by a gazillion dollars and splurged on this pile of old barn lumber.

Not much to look at, I know.

But wait until you see what one very talented guy (not David) (sorry) was able to do with such an unpromising pile of salvaged wood.

The transformation was slow.  At times we were unsure if it would be done in time for NEXT Christmas!

But slowly things began to take shape.

 Something beautiful began to emerge from the sawdust and mess.

And now we have this beautiful trestle table sitting in our kitchen at the farm.

Well worth the wait I might add.

Merry Belated Christmas, David!
