Took a couple of weekends to complete table and benches. As a sidenote, Orange was definitely the least expensive between the 2 box stores. They also had a much better selection of inexpensive wood. We made the table and benches for the same price we made our reclaimed wood king headboard (supplies purchased at blue).
A word to the wise: DO NOT CUT THE END, PERPENDICULAR PIECES OF WOOD FOR THE TOP UNTIL THE LONG, 2X4S ARE ATTACHED. Just cut it to fit at home. We found the cut list is a little off in that regard and had to get a little creative so we wouldn't have massive 2x4 overhang,as the 1x6 cut was too short for us. We just cut to fit when building the benches and found it was much easier!
I'm working on this project right now! I shortened mine to fit my space, but I'm excited to see this completed! Yours is fantastic!
When I was imagining what I'd like for my hubs and I to build - this is exactly what I was thinking. Great job!!
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
