I get asked a lot about our farmhouse dining table so I thought it would be fun to share a little more about it today!

Can You Build This?
A few years back I found some plans online for a dining table that I really liked. I asked my hubby if he thought it was something he could build. He’d never done anything like that before but he thought he could figure it out.
We bought the material and he went to work. For having never attempted a project like this before, he did a beautiful job!
Farmhouse Dining Table
When we moved to a different state we decided to sell the table. We didn’t know what our new house would be like or if we would have room for that large of a piece. It turns out we ended up having more space, but it was fun getting to design a new table with the new house in mind.

I knew I wanted turned legs which was not something we had the skills or equipment for so Eric started searching online and found these beautiful chunky legs by Design 59 on Amazon. They are gorgeous and we’ve been so happy with them!
Since we had the space, I wanted the table to be long and skinny. We went with four 1×10 pine boards and Eric used pocket screws (you can find the kit for this here) and wood glue to hold them together. Then he cut pieces for the ends to lay horizontally.
He built the base out of 2x4s and attached the legs to the corners. Then he added this trim detail around the table, which I loved!
I painted the base of the table in Valspar’s “Her Dainties” Chalky paint and gave it a light distressing. Then we stained the top in Minwax’s Classic Gray.
Eric attached the top to the base to finish it off and we had ourselves a beautiful farmhouse dining table!
We have so enjoyed this piece! We already had the six metal chairs that we had purchased from Wayfair for our previous table. We waited for a while to order chairs for the end to see how the space would come together. When I started looking around I found some buffalo check chairs on Wayfair that were perfect!
