FINALLY finished! I started this project back in the spring and it's finally wrapping up. I decided I wanted a new kitchen table with two features: 1. it needed to be bar height with a storage shelf below and 2. the top needed to be removable.

It all started with this pergola. Remember my Salvaging Pergola Wood post from last year. Well I wanted to put that wood to use. In April I drew up a sketch of the table and started planning.

The GC is back for final inspection. I moved a few barstools to the table however I don't plan to use these. One, I don't like the way they look with the table but we also only have 2.

On the shelf I added a bowl of wine corks. I thought about getting creative by adding a bottle holder to the shelf {easy access} but maybe another day.
