My new Hubby built table!

Hi to all my wonderful blogger friends. I hope you all had a lovely Memorial Week-end. We were fortunate to have great weather with lot's of sunshine and highs in the 70's. TA DA!! The lovely little table that hubby recently built for me. I was so thrilled with how it turned out. I wanted something to fit in a lonely little hall corner. I found a pic on the Internet and he went to work. The table is built out of pine and he used cherry for the top. I love cherry when it's not stained too dark, it has such a rich look to it.

Here is the top view with my recent yard sale lamp purchase.

And here, fitting so perfectly in my lonely little corner. The walls here are painted a sage green and he used a hunter green for a nice contrast on the table. We just bought some simple little white knobs for more contrast and a cottagy feel.

And last I wish that our computers had a scratch and sniff button. The lilacs are blooming heavily and I have every vase in my house filled with them. We have the dark purple and light purple varieties and I love to mix them together. It's too bad they couldn't last all summer long. Thanks for coming to see my cute little table built with love by hubby. Cindy


  1. Cindy, your husband does the most beautiful woodworking! I love this little table -- so sweet. Love the natural cherry top and the painted frame -- just perfect!

    Scratch and sniff on computers? Hahahaha... that would be great for flowers, and for recipes too!


  2. Cindy, can I borrow your hubby so he can make me a table? ;-) He is so talented!!! My word, that is one gorgeous piece. Wow!

  3. Hi Cindy, I agree with Chandy... can I borrow him next? LOL

    What a beautiful small table. It fits perfectly and I love the color! I also love Cherry wood. (:

    Ah Lilacs... When we lived in Oregon I had Lilacs everywhere. The scent is beyond this world. I loved your photos. I could almost smell it. But now that I live by the beach... lilacs don't really grow well here, and the hybrids that do... they have very little scent.

  4. What a perfect piece for that little corner. I love it. I also really like the green paint with the cherry top. He did a magnificent job. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  5. Cindy! Your husband did a fabulous job on that piece -- WOW! And those flowers are beautiful in addition to being fragrant...


    Sheila :-)

  6. Oh Cindy I can't even imagine saying I would like a piece of furniture and have my hubby build it for me. You are so lucky girl! The table is perfect in that corner and the lamp is gorgeous too! Lilacs are heavenly! Can they be dried like hydrangea? Maybe they won't smell as pretty but you could enjoy them for a little longer. Hugs, Loretta

  7. he did a great job. it looks great. your so lucky to have all those lilacs Cindy, I need to get out and pick a bunch before they are gone.

  8. Cindy, your husband is so talented. I love the things that he does (that you show us). Really love the cherry wood top on the table - so nice! I have a handy hubby, too. He has made built-ins for us, ceiling beams, gates for the deck, installed beadboard and extra crown moulding, and lots of fixing up. But ultimately he would like to build furniture. He has done the greatest things with a 30 year old radial arm saw, but would love to have a table saw and another one, I forget. Does your husband have a shop at home, or does he just do things at the school shop? How wonderful to have that accessible at any rate! I keep telling my hubby to go buy a thing-a-ma-gig at the Depot for a birthday present, but he keeps stalling (either too thrifty, or else he's afraid what I might ask him to build! - I mean, is it too much to ask him to build a baby grand piano case?!) Sorry this is so long, but we share the blessing of handy hubbies and I always enjoy seeing what Mr. Applestone is up to! Linda p.s. The flowers smell so good!

  9. GM Cindy...your Hubby does the most awesome job of building furniture...love this little table and your yard sale lamp...I had cerry cupboard in my other home and just loved them...but what a pain when I had to oil them all ha ha!! May you have a great day my friend...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  10. What??? You got a new hubby??? Hehe!!!

    Mornin' Girlfriend...

    Hehe...I couldn't resist that funny "play" on words! When I first read your post title..."My New Hubby..." I couldn't get past those 3 words! Hehe!!!

    Okay, I'm being silly...onto more serious things...like this fabulous little table that your new hubby made for you!!! Girl, I just love it...and the style matches that last pretty table that he made for you! I'm thinking it's "shaker"? I love it...love that beautiful wood grain of the cherry top...you're right, it's gorgeous! And I love that you painted it green...it looks perfect for that corner!!!

    Girl, how blessed you are to have such a talented honey!!! I'm tellin' ya...I'm so green with envy as I'm sure each and everyone of us gals are...to be able to just give your sweet and talented husband a picture of a piece of furniture and have him make it for you!!! That is soooo awesome!!! Ohhh...if I lived closer...I would give you a "run for your money" for keeping your husband busy making me some furniture! Hehe!!!

    Your thrift store treasure find...that gorgeous little lamp is a perfect style and fit for your new table...I love it!!! Girl, I'm just so happy for you!!! You have so many pretty things and such a beautiful home!!!

    Glad to hear that you had a nice holiday weekend! Sounds like your weather was really nice! Oh yes, and by the way...what a fabulous bouquet of lilacs...it's soooo pretty, my friend! It has been cool here and rainy (which is very unusual since we live in such an arid climate) but it's nice and everything is so lush and green!!! It's supposed to remain cool (in the 60's) with rain for the rest of the week.

    Well Darlin'...I hope that you're having a terrific Tuesday...I loved seeing your new little table!!! Lucky girl!!!

    Love ya,

  11. I am cracking up! I glanced at the title of this post and read it as "NEW HUBBY!" LOL
    He did good! And love the lamp!
    BLOGAROMA! I keep telling someone to invent it!
    What I wouldn't give to smell those lilacs! Kind of like smelling all my Jasmine! YUM!
    Very fun! HAGD! Hugs! Karen

  12. Hi Cindy! I am always amazed at how talented your hubby is. Mine does not even hammer a nail on the wall. Beautiful table he built! Love your lilacs, they're gorgeous and I wish I could smell them too....Christine

  13. I LOVE the hubby-built table. Good job to him for the building project, and to you for decorating it!!!

  14. Cindy, your table is lovely. What a wonderful job your husband did!


  15. Hi Cindy! Oh, your hubby did a wonderful job with the little table. He's very talented! I love the green body and cherry top! And that lamp looks perfect on top!
    Oh, I love lilacs! Yours are so lovely!
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia :)

  16. Cindy the table is fabulous! Wonderful workmanship!

  17. Cindy, that table is perfect! What a talented husband. You are going to laugh when I tell you this...when I read the title to your post in my blog list, I thought it said, My new hubby built a table". Of course, I was wondering what happened to your "old" hubby! I KNOW how creative the "old" hubby was-has she got a new hubby who is just as handy?!!!
    OK, back to the business at hand. I think this table is so pretty, and I love the way you have it accessorized. That lamp is perfect on it. I almost could smell your gorgeous lilacs through my computer. laurie

  20. Nice! If my hubby was home, I'd show him a picture of your darling new table! Our lilacs are finished! I put them all over the house too!

  21. Don't change the post title at all. Keep him on his toes.
