Lots of projects going on around here, but today I’m sharing my farmhouse dining table I built a little over a year ago (waaay before this blog!). This was my very first woodworking project. I did happen to snap a few photos of the process – sorry about the poor quality, these were taken with my phone!

I got this building plan – and the confidence to attempt it – from the amazing Ana White. If you’ve never been to her site, she creates free and easy furniture building plans. I love her plans because many of them are knock-offs of Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware furniture!

  • The wood for building this table was around $100! I think Pottery Barn was selling this table for around $1800 at the time! Mine might not look identical, but for the cost differential, I’m a happy camper!

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    The main reason I am sharing this project is partially because its affordable – but mainly because I truly believe any one can build this table, or any of Ana’s furniture plans.

  • Step 2

    One reason I love DIY is because it allows you to create a beautiful and comfortable home you love, just to your taste, within your means.

    For me, spending $1800 on a table just isn’t an option. And I truly believe I enjoy this table immensely more than I would the PB one because of all the hard work I put into it.
