Adam has been bugging for for over a year now to build a new table. Not only that, he wanted to build it out of his favorite wood, which happens to be very expensive (he literally has the most expensive taste)! Of course its walnut, which I happen to love also. Who doesn’t???
Anyways, we wanted to table to have clean lines, consistent color, and of course, be functional! Back on Instagram, I asked everyone if we should keep a small portion of live edge to add some character. Everyone loved the idea and said keep it. Needless to say… thats what we did. We kept the legs modern and simple. They slightly angle in 5 degrees. He actually did the opposite effect on the bench, which they slightly angle out and it flows awesome.
Speaking of the bench… if you have kids, its a must. Beckham loves it, he rarely sits on the chairs. Plus it stows away nicely and having chairs on the opposite side adds style.
As for the finish, we kept it natural. We both feel it should be illegal to stain walnut! Its natural color is so deep and rich and combined with the grain… well, thats why its our favorite 🙂 This build took Adam about a month. Between travel with his actual career, vacations and spending time with the family, it finally got done. Check out the pictures below! Its actually a very cool process to see; from picking up the rough cut walnut at the lumber yard, planing/joining and cutting each piece to size, to the final, perfectly smooth finish, that we now sit and eat together as a family. Hope you love it as much as we do.
Rug details! There are a couple places you can get this rug I got the 6’7×9 on Amazon. Wayfair, Rug USA, Joss and Main and Amazon are who carry it but Amazon was the cheapest! Here is the thing though there are a couple sellers of it on amazon so copy this name Vintage Moroccan trellis Grey Area Rugs in your amazon serch or in your google search. I have seen the price go up and down on the other sites. Amazon though has said consistently about the same.
Hope you all have an amazing day.
