Reclaimed Dining: Breakfast Room Table

I love dining tables.
At just seventeen, I bought my first one; and the obsession was born.

There's something so special about the time spent around the table. 
I just recently shared some of our kitchen and dining room here.

I crave not just the delicious prepared meals but the time of lingering and talking.
So, it was a no brainer when Cowboy pointed out this metal outdoor dining set at an auction.

I forgot to take a "before" pic as usual but it was all metal with no seats or table top.
We had some scraps of "car siding" similar to what we used on our family room ceiling.

The texture and warmth of the wood against the classic black metal is such a great combination.
(For those wondering about the "how-to"...after fitting together the wood pieces we removed the top and drilled holes in the metal to secure the wooden top to the table.

The next challenge was the chairs. I was thinking I would cover them. But, when Cowboy cut out wooden seats and I glossed a little stain over it I fell even more in love with the contrast.

Don't mind the toilet seat in the background. Things get a little crazy around here.

After the stain was dry, I put a couple coats of coconut oil on the wood. 
I use this on quite a few of our tables and our butcher block island as well. 

We hope the new family enjoys many meals and memories gathered around their table.
We enjoyed so much of the Good Maker's Market and to all of you we say...

From R7 to you --
Be a blessing.

Warning: Beautiful Barn!!! - Good Makers Market

Last weekend we took R7 Reclaimed on the road to the Barn at Bunker Hill 
for the first ever Good Maker's Market.

If not one shopper had showed, I could have spent the weekend just gazing at this barn!!

But they showed up ready to have fun and hunt treasures and handmade goods.

We had such a beautiful weekend!

The photo booth was a hit!

One bride-to-be even carried a photo booth away to use on her big day.

This beauty was a show favorite and the smile was priceless from the young junque shopper who has a new vintage style makeup case!

The sky was so blue and made the perfect backdrop for the beautiful barn!

I love the timeless juxtaposition of delicate and hardworking captured in this photo.

The grass was green and soft under my toes and another young shopper will travel the world in vintage style with her new leather carry-on.

I love these classics all mixed together. If you look at the background you can see the old pews brought in and covered in quilts for shoppers to take a break and enjoy live music!

I never tire of refreshing the displays and meeting people.

It was fun to add a few fall touches.

In the early morning light, Cowboy and I even enjoyed a little breakfast 
at this beautiful table before it was carried off to its new home.
You can see a little more on how we made it here.

We were overwhelmed by the kindness and excitement that all showed for our dream we call R7.
We appreciate those who encourage us!

P.S. If you want to look petite just have your picture taken by the tall corn we grow here in Iowa!

From R7 to you --
Be a blessing.
