I had hubby build me a farm table! Yay! One night last week I asked him if he thought it was possible. The following day he was doing research on how much he thought it would cost and the next thing you know, we're on our way to Home Depot to pick up all the supplies
ana-white.com had the best plans. We kinda used one of her plans but then hubby tweeked it, see his scribbles in the above image. It's a very basic table, nothing fancy to it which is probably what farm families built at the turn of the century. They just needed to get a table up for their large families That's the way I wanted it too, simple and rustic.
You won't believe it but this table cost less than $150!! We already had the stain so that saved us a few pennies but other than that, hubby had to buy everything else. It took us a week from start (shopping at HD) to finish to build this table.
He is now building another for the shop and if it sells, he'll just make another one. He doesn't mind, as long as he's physically able he'll be more than thrilled to keep on building more.
My dining room is my next focus since I've basically ignored it from the rest of the rooms in the house. I will be painting and possibly adding wainscoting or bead board, hopefully by September.
So, if you've been wanting a farm table, it's so easy to build one. If hubby and I can do it, so can you!
Until next time,
