One thing I know for sure is that I love reclaimed wood.
It's so pretty, not just for the color variations, but also for the natural imperfection it has.
I call it natural beauty.
This morning I was in the mood to build something.
We just recently decided to stay in town for Thanksgiving, so I wanted to build something for our table.
Four feet long and nine inches wide.
I usually have this other centerpiece/trivet I made (click here) last year
(which I have been using every single day...I love this too)
It is only 2 1/2 feet long.
I wanted a big statement piece,
and I think I achieved what I had in mind.
I filled it with things I already had,
I think some small gourds will be on my grocery shopping list for this week.
I absolutely love it!
The entire centerpiece didn't cost me anything...beside time to take the wood apart, measure, cut it, sand it, and put it together.
I made this using the same steps as
just a bigger version.
