Farmhouse Table for Under $100

diy farmhouse table

Karin from Art Is Beauty had wanted a farmhouse table for years that her big family could gather around for meals, homework, and memories. She says, “I always looked longingly in the Pottery Barn catalogs and pictured my family around one of these amazing farm house tables.” Finally, Karin decided enough was enough and took matters into her own hands. With the help of her hubby, Karin built her own gorgeous farmhouse table for under $100.

“Rustic Yet Refined” X Dining Room Table

When the movers broke her dining room table, Jen from House of Wood’s first thought was to build a new one. She saw a gorgeous X-based table from ZGallerie and hit up her friend Ana White to draw up the plans. Then with a little more help from Ana and the friendly folks at Minwax, Jen gave her freshly built table a “rustic yet refined” Restoration Hardware-inspired finish. Are you drooling yet? Oh, and I think I forgot to mention the lumber was only $85. Just in case you weren’t already sold {Wink}.

As Jaime points out, the table design features several beautiful details including an inset tabletop edge, curved arches on the pedestals, and a long stretcher support across the middle. Pretty much it’s the Miss America of dining tables {Giggle}!

I had so much fun seeing the Shanty Sisters last week at Haven, and, let me tell you, these girls have it all! They are as sweet as can be, fun, gorgeous, and crazy talented. Just check out this dresser that Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic built for her BFF’s baby nursery following plans from Ana White. This is a dresser that will definitely grow with the little fellow until he’s a teenager. He could even tote it off to college with him, and it would still be cool!

There has been some serious DIY going on at the vintage home that Jaime from That’s My Letter recently became the proud owner of. Last week, I shared the schoolhouse desks that Jaime built to transform an empty space into a rockin’ work area for her kiddos. With the help of Ana White, Jaime added the perfect companions in two wall hutch units that provide plenty of storage and style. I simply adore this space! Jaime, my friend, you are one talented lady!

Beth from NashvillePug was in need of a new crafting table with lots of storage and plenty of space for sewing. To meet her needs, Beth used two Closetmaid Cubeicals to form the sides of her new table and 2 by 6 beams for the top. This is such a simple project thanks to Beth’s genius brainstorm to use the Cubeicals!

Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement has been blessed with a husband who can build just about anything. Each Christmas he likes to make her a piece of furniture, and 2012 found them in need of table for behind the couch. Pam and her handy hubs modified the design for a buffet from Pottery Barn that provides plenty of storage for extra dishes and such. I can only dream of being able to build a piece of furniture like this!
