Trestle Table Arrival

October 15th, 2012

So.  IT came.  Last week.  And I’m really exited about it!!  It’s our new trestle dining room table!  You may recall this trestle table post back in August where I shared we were on the hunt for a new one and looking at all the options available out there.  I ended up buying the last one I featured and since I didn’t have a chance to evaluate it in person, I confess I was biting my nails for six weeks it took to arrive.  But here it is!

I really wanted something light but not white to contrast with the dark wood built in buffet, and with a refined rustic feel to it – this table definitely fits the bill!  It’s 7 feet long, seats 6-8 people, and a perfect fit for the space.
