Kitchen Table

I couldn't find an exact plan for the kitchen table I wanted, so I used a combination of the farmhouse table and pub table to create the perfect table for my space. I liked the look of the 4x4 legs, but my local lumber store did not have a good selection of 4x4 boards. So I used a 1x4 and 1x3 kreg jigged together in an L shape to get the look of the 4x4 legs. The overall table dimensions ended up 44" square by 31" tall.

Estimated Cost
$100
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Lowe's select boards
Finish Used
Well, I asked for charcoal gray minwax stain. However, it turned out VERY blue, so I believe the paint machine must have made a mistake. I havent decided if I like the color, perhaps it will grow on me, if not, I'll be sanding it down and restaining it this spring. I used minwax satin polyurethane over the stain.

Love the way the color of the table turned out and the size boards you used on top. Where did you find the matching chairs? This is the exact color scheme of my dining room remodel. Thanks!
