Our daughter said she wanted a desk like Daddy. When I found these plans I was so excited! My husband doesn't know it yet but it was his practice for a large farmhouse table that I want for our dining room. The Clara's table plans were easy to follow, I can not remember the exact prices for our materials since we built this back in the fall (over 6 months ago). We will eventually make the chairs. I was pleased with the way it turned out with the stained top and the legs were painted a ballet pink. I believe the stain is Dark Walnut, it was something we had leftover from another project and the paint for the legs was leftover from painting her room. It has held up well the past 6 months, it has a few dings from markers and other toys but I love the character it adds to the table. We plan on making the chairs soon.

Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Dark Walnut stain and clear coat polyurethane (2 coats stain, 2 clear coats) Ballet pink paint used for the legs. We did not have an old rag to apply the stain, we used a plastic grocery bag and it worked great!
