Farmhouse Inspired Table

My husband and I used Ana's plans to create this BEAUTIFUL farmhouse inspired table for our dining room. The project was straightforward and we are EXTREMELY happy with the results. We added a touch of modern to the table by purchasing metal chairs from overstock.com. The table is perfect for family get togethers and even more important...family game nights!!

Minwax Polyshades in Dark Walniut-we also applied a few coats of wipe on poly to the finished project. We wanted our table to look rustic so we did "bang it up" a bit before staining and finishing.

Looks great! Did you just use the cheap pine at Lowes/HD? Any tricks to getting the table top flat and level?

We used the "select" pine boards from Home Depot..which are a bit nicer than just the ordinary ones. To make the table top level we used a level to be sure that there weren't any major bumps...then once we had the top secured we sanded it to make the boards flush to each other. Hope that helps! Thanks for you comments!
