The Table is Built!
Well, I’ve been trying to get this post up for 2 days now, but have been away from the computer almost entirely (a nice change!). I am happy to announce that we finally got the table into one piece! We decided it was best to do this the right way, so the beau went to pick up his drill and put pilot holes in before trying to attach the screws. The legs and frame were attached to a thin piece of birch, since we measured wrong and could not attach directly to the old window. As it were, I think it turned out to be a happy accident, as it really added some extra strength and stability to the whole piece.
The pictures below show the underside as the glue is drying and the final table done with the wallpaper laid of top of the panels. Next week, I will be ordering some custom cuts of glass to fit over the wallpaper panels to weigh them down and protect them, as well as putting a final coat of sealer over the table paint. For now… i’m going to enjoy the rest of my weekend trip down to the countryside of south-central Texas before heading back to the busy, bustling city. Tata for now!
