We’ve been sitting around the same table and “chairs” for ten years.

Old table and "chairs"

We’ve made a lot of memories at that table, but we’ve outgrown it. The leaf insert that was meant to extend the table for special occasions had become a permanent fixture, as well as the play dough, cookie dough, moon sand or whatever all that is that’s lodged in the crevices. More than half the chairs had broken and we’d been using, you know, whatever.

And then our new table and chairs arrived.

New table and chairs

They were custom made by Amish men from reclaimed barn wood. Oh, they are beautiful!

Reclaimed barn wood

They are exactly what I wanted.
