Once upon a time...

Husband: What do you want the table to look like?
Wife: Rustic.
Husband: Can you be more specific?
Wife: Super rustic.

Husband builds a traditional farmhouse style frame, glues and screws the wood to secure it, filling in holes in with dowel rods for a finished yet rustic look.

Husband: Like this?
Wife: I think so. But more rustic.
Husband: What do you mean more rustic?
Wife: I don’t know…distress it a bit?

Using a dull chisel, Husband gouges the wood edges for a rough finish.

Husband takes a blowtorch to the areas surrounding any knots.

Husband: Like that, right?
Wife: YES! But I think I want the table to be bigger…
Husband: Seriously? You’re kidding.
Wife: No. But I love you!

Husband builds two 3-pronged wooden extensions to add 18.5'' to the length of the table.

Husband isn't frustrated in the slightest by this addition to his workload.

Husband: OK. Removable extensions. Do you like?
Wife: I love. Now let’s talk about that sunroom

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    It’s actually very difficult in this busy life
    to listen news on TV, therefore I only use
    internet for that reason, and get the newest information.

    Seriously? That is your comment. It's about the table not the room. I think there are hotlines you can call when you are having a bad day.
