Narrow Farmhouse Table

Submitted by beingbrook on Wed, 03/09/2011 - 13:03

I really wanted a sewing table/desk for my office but wanted something that could be repurposed in a few years when we move. I chose the Narrow farmhouse table plan because it was a really sturdy plan that was easy to modify for our needs and was a timeless enough style that I can use it in another room if need be. I especially loved the look of the legs.

We made our table smaller to fit our space and also made it about 1 or 2 inches shorter because I’m really short and wanted a comfortable place to sew and craft. The top of our table is 58″ by 24″. We used MDF for the top instead of slats because my kids use this as a craft/coloring table when I’m not sewing. I didn’t want their pencils to poke through their papers if they got caught on the slats. We used thin molding for the edge of the MDF to give it a nice finished look.
