About This Project

This was the first attempt at building furniture for my husband and me...and we're thrilled with how it turned out! We had a table from Crate and Barrel that was not holding up at all (I convinced them to take it back after 1 year) and wanted to try to build our own. We used Ana's Farmhouse Dining Table original plan, and only shortened it to 64", but followed the rest exactly. We looked into getting oak or a more expensive wood for the table, but save your money and get the pine! After the polyurethane, it's harder and more durable than our C&B table!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$100
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
After building the table, I sanded it really well. I then applied wood conditioner, and Minwax "Sunbleached" oil-based stain for a greyish finish. The top of the table has one coat, the rest two (I liked how one coat allows the wood color to show through with the grain, among the grey of the stain). I sanded after the staining, then did two coats of satin polyurethane (sanding in between coats). I'm so happy with the color!

Beautiful Job!

Nice job and I love the finish! I will keep that stain in mind for one of my next projects...
