$157 Custom Farmhouse Table with Bolted Plank Top - Restoration Hardware Inspired with Salvage Grey Wash Finish

My family needed a new outdoor dining table so my husband and I made this DIY Restoration Hardware Inspired Farmhouse table with Salvage Grey Wash Finish! I combined two popular RH table styles, the rectangular X-base Table and the Brickmaker’s Table, to come up with this distinctive innovative design: an X-base bottom with an industrial bolted plank table top! This will blow your mind....this table cost us only $157.00 to make, just a small fraction of the the RH $4690.00 price tag for their tables! We started with Ana White's Farmhouse Table plans, added inset lag bolts to the planked top and then gave our table a customized salvage grey wash finish to add a touch of gorgeous grey to a dark walnut base layer. We've had many fun dinners on our large farmhouse table with family and friends! See my blog post for all of the steps and materials!
