Before we could bring our new table in, we had to remove the old set. Then, I added a few more Flor tiles to the existing rug. Because our old table was round, the four square by four square rug was the perfect size. The rectangular table needed a rectangular rug. When I order Flor rugs, I always order a few extra squares of each design. This came in handy. I cut the dark brown squares to fit with the existing design. Then I taped them together because I didn’t have extra Flor dots. After about ten minutes, our ‘new’ rug was ready for the table.
Ben and I carried in the new table base, but the top was far too heavy for me to move. With a little help from a friend, we had a new table. Enough talk, here’s the completed table:
The overall size is 4 1/2 feet long by 3 feet wide, which fits perfectly in our dining room. The chairs tuck under neatly, fitting close the edge of the table, leaving two feet of walking space on all sides.
The apron is set in 1/2 inch from the legs, giving the base a polished look.
I love the clean, modern Parsons style legs paired with the more traditional marble top.
It’s a perfect balance of modern and traditional. The dark wooden chairs are comfortable and stylish, but still add warmth.
I wanted to show the marble off, so here’s an artsy shot:
I am 150% in love with our new table. What do you think? What is your proudest DIY project?
