Outdoor Dining Table

One thing Melissa of The Happier Homemaker and her husband wanted in their dream backyard was a nice outdoor dining set, but they all came with steep price tags.

Instead, Melissa and her hubs worked together to build their own using a combination of plans that included Ana White’s farmhouse table.

Would you believe it only cost them $100 and one afternoon?!?

Pottery Barn Inspired Outdoor Dining Table ~ It only cost $100 and took one afternoon to build this DIY outdoor table! Now, who's ready for a BBQ?

The original inspiration came from the Benchwright Dining Table from Pottery Barn.

Melissa says, "Then I used Minwax Wood Conditioner on the entire piece. Once that was dry I lightly sanded it and did one coat of Minwax Polyshades in Mission Oak-my favorite stain color!"
