{Farmhouse Table}

IMG_1375[1]My aunt and uncle were incredibly generous and gifted us with a gorgeous 3-person glass table when we first got married.  It was an absolutely huge blessing and saved us the stress of trying to find and finance a dining room set right after the wedding.  It served us/food well and was a constant reminder of the generosity of others.

Fast forward a year and a half post-wedding and the Bybels are stuck.  We love food, people and entertaining – all of which are great things but hard to do at a small table.
Desperate to host lavish dinner parties, board game tournaments and some friendly hands of cards we started exploring the table “market.”

{Issues at Hand?}
1.) The lovely farmhouse-style tables we desire are EXPENSIVE.  Not cool.
2.) We have to haul this up a flight of stairs and fit it through the door at the apartment.  Sounds heavy and annoying.
3.) Family has a pending visit and we want to be able to all sit around the same space.  Time crunch.

Saving grace?{Two19 Butterfly Lane}

A couple e-mail exchanges and a few weeks later, we had this AMAZING solid wood dining room table.

yays: Custom designs, SUPER reasonable prices, amazing and talented business woman, {metal chairs}, dinner party/card & board game ready, salvaged wood and solid wood (I had the sore muscles to prove it).
nays: Hard to get up stairs (call strong people to help) and a bit of a drive from Dallas (but 100% worth it)!

We are absolutely thrilled thrilled thrilled!

Enjoy those around your table, friends!
