Every home needs a statement piece. Something that draws the eye to it and screams WOW!! What is that piece for you, in your home? For me, it’s the giant sliding barn door in our family room AND our farmhouse table in our dining room. I get so many compliments and questions about our farmhouse table. I love to see people’s reactions when I tell them that it is actually a makeover from our original dining room table (Be sure to check back next week for the tutorial on my “dining room table turned farmhouse table” makeover)….
Farmhouse Table Designs
Farmhouse tables can be very easy. Like our kitchen table, I took an old barn door for the table top and attached it to two sawhorses for my legs…a little paint and it’s a beautiful table! So simple, but yet such a conversation piece….
I love to build farmhouse tables. There are so many styles to choose from and so many finishing looks you can give them. These are a few of the builds I have made for other people…
I love the turned legs on this one…
And the finish on this one–so beautiful…
In the summertime, this farmhouse table is our number one hangout spot. If those boards could talk! So many great conversations around this piece…
It was so much fun to build my mom (and dad) a farmhouse table for Mother’s Day a few years back….
For a couple years now, I’ve been building a farmhouse table for our annual school auction. I love to be a part of this special night. It brings me such joy to see the proceeds going to such a great cause. My table is always a big hit…
I added some hardware to this table from the first auction. (Check out the post here, to see how easy it is to add character to any furniture piece with just a little bit of metal hardware)….
I have this gem on display in my favorite local builder’s spec home. Looking forward to building a few more pieces for them soon….
If you’re wanting a new farmhouse table to make a statement in your home, why not build one? They are truly one of the easiest things to build. My favorite place to get my table plans from is Shanty2Chic. They have great tutorials that are so easy to follow.
Until next time,
Happy building, friend!!
