RECLAIMED DINING TABLE

Everyone loves the classic Emerson West Elm Dining table, but who has the $1,500 to cough up for a table like that. So instead of soaking in the unlikely, why not just build it. When we moved into our house, the deck that was there had not been cared for in 15 years. So after […]
