This Mother’s Gorgeous Idea Would Cost Over A Thousand Dollars (however She Created It For About $ 200!) — DIY All In One

We splurged and bought a dream Pottery Barn Farmhouse Table to your dining room. Home decor fashions and preferences change evolve although our prior room table has been gorgeous. After all, it was 20 decades. We didn’t feel too nervous about letting it go, it was time! Our inspiration for DIY a table came when our daughter subtly indicated she’d like us to build her one for the house she was renting. Walking by our Pottery Barn Farmhouse table daily inspired us to build a look at like because of her.

Timing: 4 Hours Price: $200 Difficulty:  Moderate

Stain the top of each piece of timber (you are able to stain the other side if you prefer). Since you’ll put trim bits it’s not necessary to stain the sides.   Depending on how dark you want the table, you can apply as many coats as you like.   I implemented 3 software waiting about an hour in between each coat to dry.   Should you apply stain with a cloth instead of a brush, then it will dry quicker since It’s absorbed into the timber

Twist the 1″ x 3″ trimming that you have cut to size around the bottom of the desk to hold the boards together.   This also provides you an area to pinpoint the side cut.

Cut the (3)  1″ x 4″ to size (the diameter between both cut pieces).   This will be utilised as support for somewhere and the table top to anchor the legs of this table.   These 3 pieces will probably be dragged from the bottom of the desk by placing them in between the two side pieces that are trim.   For a dimension guide please visit our website  post. You will wish to space the two ending 1″ x 4″ trimming bits about 57 inches apart (that is where you’ll join the legs of this table). The third trimming simply extends in the center of the two.   Whatever dimensions you decide on, be sure to permit space at the end for seats to be dragged upward.

Start building the legs of this table.   Clamp Kreg Jig  onto the two″ x 4″ timber, drill two pocket holes right into one of the pieces of two″ x 4″.   The Kreg Jig is highly recommended by us!

Connect your timber pieces together with screws.   Until you have basically built a square foot, do this with all 4 pieces of wood.   Repeat this procedure for another leg base.   This piece on the thighs is also for sturdiness of their legs and it’s a component of this original Pottery Barn Farmhouse table’s design we bought.

By screwing them in, attach the legs towards the end support pieces of timber.   Until you join them to make it a bit easier, you are able to paint the legs.   There’s roughly 57 inches between the thighs.   Just be sure that there is sufficient room at the ends of the desk to slip a chair beneath.   Normally, the overhang should measure 11.75″ into 12″ on the ends

Line the 1″ x two″  trim pieces to the top of the table edge.   Twist to the faces of the desk with nails.   Stain  the trim pieces on the side to coincide with the tabletop. (Note: in this photograph the trimming was placed on before we attached the legs of this desk.   Either way, it doesn’t matter if you join the trimming before or after you have attached the thighs)

Utilizing the electric sander, sand down round the edges to smooth any roughness.   We wouldn’t want anyone to snag a sweater.   You can do so before or after you have attached the thighs

Paint the thighs.   I used paint that I had on hand which was Annie Sloan’s Old White Chalk Paint.   It had fully dried and after I painted the legs all white, I cut on a coating of wax working with a cotton cloth. For a farmhouse look, apply the sanding sponge on the corners.

We wrapped a big ribbon round the table top and snuck it into our daughter’s house (since we are lucky she gave us a key) and put together a Merry Christmas sign on it and left.   When she came home from work to her DIY pottery barn inspired table created by us, 23, she was absolutely surprised!
