I built the children's farmhouse table and 4 storage chairs for my 2-year-old twins. I followed the plans exactly, except the addition of some minor details using my router: I gave the table top a nice edge using my Roman Ogee bit, rounded the front and side edges of the seats for comfort using a 1.5" roundover bit, and rounded the inner corners of the back on both sides and the top and bottom of the back rests with a 1/2" roundover bit. I bought a roll of drawing paper from Ikea in the children's section, and it will be attached underneath using a removable dowel so we can pull a sheet of paper out from under the table for coloring or to use as an easy-cleanup paper cloth if they eat at this table with their cousins!
Type of Wood
Store-bought turned legs, premade pine panel, furring strips, select 1x pine boards
The table and seats were stained using Varathane "Weathered Grey", and the chairs painted using Rustoleum satin paint in "white". I also used 2x coats of Varathane Triple Thick polyurethane on the table top & seats
