DIY Dining Table

Last year, one of my husband's relatives posted a photo of her birthday gift from her husband, a gorgeous handmade harvest/farmhouse table. I was in love with it and almost immediately began searching Pinterest so that my husband could build us one of our own.

The table plans my husband chose he found on Ana-White.com.

Pre-stain.

This is how it originally looked in our dining room:

This is how our dining room looks now, with the benches my husband made months after completing the table:

The only thing I would change about the table is the stain color. It's darker than I wanted, but overall, it has been working great for my family! :-)


If you like our table, then go ahead and pin the following image to Pinterest! :-)
