Our Farmhouse Table

Guys I have been waiting to show you our table until the chairs are finished but seeing as it’s 500 degrees in AZ right now I have a feeling they won’t be getting done any time soon. I painted 2 and thought I was going to die..  I also can’t figure out how to get a good picture of the color. No matter what time of day I’m taking these pictures they don’t turn out right. So, here it goes anyways!  Thank heavens I have a nice hubby who will build me a table. Love him and love his wood working skills! We got the plans here. I love Ana White’s website and all of her plans. I show the hubster plans every night and tell him how easy it would be to build me furniture all day long. For some reason he doesn’t believe me..
My Instagram pics documenting the project…I’m pretty sure the lady at Home Depot hated my guts and Vanilla Coke kept me going through this whole process.

In the process of framing the table out. I love Ana White and her easy to follow instructions!!

Finished at last!! My cute girlies were some pretty good helpers. They loved sanding this thing. We were up way past our bedtime ;)

This is after I finished weathering my wood.227
Then, I whitewashed & glazed. To find out how I did it go here.

And here it is in all it’s glory! I love it so so much! I think I’ll love it even more once we have our chairs finished and we don’t eat on half broken folding chairs. Maybe not…who knows? (I sealed it with Miniwax Polyurethane. It was way easy to apply and so far has held up good. I need all the help I can get with two toddlers running around..)

  1. Awesome!! Looks so good!! I love this because I am always telling Gabe how easy it would be to build this or that, but we have yet to tackle any of the projects I keep trying to sell him on. Supposedly we are going to attempt bunk beds soon.
