Farmhouse Table

We love the look of farmhouse tables but not their hefty price tags. So we decided to build our own. $60 in supplies and a week-end's worth of time left us with a beautiful table that has a story. Ana's plans were easy to follow. Building furniture is so rewarding...and easier on the wallet!

I was looking to make the farmhouse table this weekend but I think we'll make this instead. My husband wants "big legs" and I saw this and immediately knew that it was perfect.

WOW! First your table is amazing- great work! Second, I am wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing where you got your chairs? I love the look of them with the wood table!
Thanks!

Hi, I love this, great job! I am wanting to build a bigger one that will seat 10-12. I love the farmhouse table on this website, but I do not like the way the supports underneath prevent you from sliding chairs up to the ends. Do you think it would be sturdy enough without them? Like you did for your table here.
Thanks!!
