Rustic Plank Dining Room Table

For their new 18-foot long dining room, Whitney from Life in the Barbie Dream House  and her husband knew they needed a long rustic table to fill the space. They immediately fell in love with the planked dining room tables from Restoration Hardware and the cream colored linen chairs they paired with them. Then they saw the price tags, which range from $2,500 – $4,000! Woof! So Whitney sent her handy hubby several photos of different plank tables from the store’s catalog, and he created this for under $150!

After living with her small, wobbly coffee table for ten years, Tricia from Simplicity in the South was more than ready to welcome a more substantial piece into her home. Tricia actually built her new “beefier” table for a mere $50 since most of the wood was salvaged from an old building. And would you believe this was Tricia’s first furniture build? She borrowed a little help from Ana White for the tabletop but can take the credit for the rest of the plan. Of course, Tricia shows you exactly how she built it and achieved the distressed finished with milk paint and a wet rag.

Reclaimed Wood Shelf

Gretchen of Boxy Colonial needed display shelves for her boys’ bedroom and liked the look of some reclaimed wood shelves from West Elm. However, at $58 for the smallest shelf, it simply wasn’t happening. Instead, Gretchen enlisted her husband and two sons to make these look-a-likes with wood “reclaimed” from the scrap pile. I have a feeling it didn’t take too much persuading to get them to bang up the boards with hammers and screwdrivers {wink}!

Reclaimed Wood Bench

As a part of her mudroom remodel, Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust built a small bench where her kids could sit and put their shoes on. Being the resourceful gal that she is, Kristen used some old picnic table boards she found in a dumpster for the build. I love Kristen’s criss-cross design and the fact that she built this bench for FREE by using the reclaimed wood! You go, Girl!
