The Outdoor Farm Table

You're not gonna believe it!  I've mentioned in the past that I stalk check Craigslist on a daily basis.  Like I said in my Craigslist Motherload post, I regularly check for certain key words.  Saturday night I was doing my thing and under keyword search "vintage", what to my wondering eyes should appear?  Why, a huge outdoor farmhouse table, oh dear!

Other than the fact that it's a cool looking table, what's so special about it?  Well, this is how the ad read:

Outdoor Farmhouse Table

Custom made farmhouse table. Cypress wood from vintage garage door panel. Some white color left on sides, but most wood has been weathered to a natural wood finish. Table is unique and very heavy. Measures 32" wide, 9 1/2 feet long.


The highlighted section reminded me of the words I used to describe MY table in this post.
...table made out of a garage door....  

When I scrolled down and saw the photos on the ad, I recognized it immidiately. 

The farm table is being sold by the same nice couple that gave me the garage door panel I used for my farm table.  When I had gone to pick up the door panels, a year or so ago, they had shown me this table they built with the sister door panel.  He built the stand and put the table together as a surprise to his wife.  (Isn't that sweet?!) 

Now, isn't it something that I found the ad that lead me to it?!  It's kissmet, I tell ya!  How could I not buy it??!!  Negociations are on.  Wish me luck.
