Farmhouse Table - My first project!

Submitted by ksuehr on Wed, 05/30/2012 - 13:02

I followed Ana's plans for the farmhouse table and bench. This was my first project and it turned out really well! The flash makes some of the table top look discolored but it does not look like that in person - just a weird flash thing I think :)
The project took me about a week - table and bench and I only worked on it during nap times and when the kiddos went to sleep! The original plan was for a 96 inch table - I shortened mine to 75 inches to fit our dining room.
A great dining room table for us and it cost around $200 for both table and bench.
I am so proud that I actually built something that my family can use and I get so many compliments on!
Thanks, Ana!!!
