When SL Style Director Heather Chadduck lost a 100-year-old hickory tree in her backyard, she knew it was time for a makeover. A vine-covered pergola and cozy outdoor fireplace transformed her Birmingham backyard into a chic outdoor retreat.
Heather's father used pressure-treated pine to build her a simple trestle-style table. Painted French Gray by Farrow & Ball, the table seats 14 and measures 17 feet long. That length made it exactly 1 foot shorter than a standard sheet of copper, allowing her roofer to easily wrap the tabletop in the material.
