How a Pile of Old Wood Became a Beautiful Rustic Table

Have you ever seen a picture that you couldn't get out of your head?
That's what happened to me when I saw a photo of a beautiful rustic wood table.
Only I didn't want to buy one.
Then I spotted a pile of old wood and this is what I did.
this was my inspiration photo
this is the pile of old wood I spotted on the side of my brother's house...
the old wood planks were used on top and I spent $42.00 at Home Depot for a few new pieces for the table base...
instead of painting the whole table I did some light touch up with chalk paint on the base and top
I found wicker chairs to go with my wood table
