Farmhouse table and benches

About This Project

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).

Wood conditioner then one coat of dark walnut stain and poly. Top of table and benches got 3 coats of poly with light sanding between each coat. 

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!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$150 for everything, used leftover stain and poly
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
The cheapest stuff we could find to fit the given dimensions!
Finish Used: 
Miniwax dark walnut (one coat) and clear poly (one coat all around and 3 coats on top surface).

Beautiful!

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!!
