DIY Dining Table for only $65!!!

Happy Monday friends!

Come check out my AMAZING DIY dining table!!

I am sooooo excited to share the newest Ana White plans with you guys today! ย This is my very favorite build yet!

I have been in serious need for an outdoor table to seat my family of 7. ย When we stumbled upon a beautiful, long farmhouse table from Anthropologie, I knew it was love at first sight.

Everything was perfect about it… Except that $2,000 price tag… Ouch. That hurts to even write. ย But… I knew who to call to help me make my own at a very small fraction of that cost!

Here is our knock off version…

I will share a few pics from my build, and you can see the full set of plans for this table HERE on Ana’s site!

Let me start with price….


How great is that?? ย It was a super easy build as well.

I used Gorilla Wood Glue and deck screws for most of the construction! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also used my Kreg Jigยฎ on a few parts!

For those of you on the fence about finally purchasing one of these, go for it! ย This tool is AMAZING, and has been life changing for me! ย It has enabled me to furnish my entire home for very little cost. ย It’s a small investment with a HUGE return. ย You will thank us! ย I suggest getting them from Amazon! ย Ash and I are Amazon junkies… Best prices and free shipping… WIN WIN! ย Here is a link to the model Ash and I use below!

That kit is really everything you will ever need, other than screws as you run low!

I LOVE, LOVE the results!! ย This table can be modified to an outdoor table by just spacing your top boards a bit more apart.

To finish it off, I stained the whole thing with Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut.

Rust-Oleum-Dark-Walnut Stain

To protect that, I added two coats of Spar Varnish on top.

RustOleum Spar Varnish

Want to see a few more pics?? Yah.. Me too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What do you think??

Did I mention $65???

Yah… I think the price makes me love it even more!

If you do love it, I would SO appreciate some PINS and shares below!

Make sure to check out the full plans for this $65 table on Ana’s site HERE! ย Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

    How do you attach the table top to the bottom? That’s the only part I am stuck at. I would like to attach the table top to the bottom where I can later take it apart when I move since it doesn’t fit through the doors. Any tips will greatly be appreciated.

    Hey, love this table!! But I’m struggling with the 30 degrees off square, end parallel etc. any pointers on a good guide or video on getting more familiar with this part

  • Sandra Yamashita

    What’s the dimensions of this table? I am looking to build a farm table for our new home and I have a long narrow kitchen. I am redesigning the peninsula and there will be about 97 inches from the peninsula cabinet to the wall. I love the look of this but I would rather know now before I buy all the materials only to find out it’s going to be too big for my space. Look forward to hearing from you soon. I love your projects you ladies do such amazing work.

  • Alice Olson

    Whitney– question for you did you rip the wood when you built this or just used the wood as is and sanded edges- my husband has been building a lot of the tables you and Ana White make and of course we are making this one for a niece this weekend (tomorrow) wanted to check with you thanks!

    We modified the plans just a bit as we are wanting seating for 10-12. So we added some support to the base but we LOVE IT! $200 total including paint, stain, and polycrylic sealer to the top. We asked someone about making one and they quoted us $1400! It was time intensive and took about 10 days by the time we painted and stained it. Metal chairs arriving tomorrow! Thank you!

    I’m getting ready to begin building this table. I want to have the top of the table stained dark similar to the pictures on this tutorial, but have the bottom of the table (legs and supports) white. What is the best way to get the white color? I have been using white stain on our cedar house, not sure if that would be best or if I should use some sort of paint instead?

    I Love this table with the side benches! I am going to attempt to make it for Thanksgiving Dinner. I have a pretty long dining room and need a table to accommodate 10-12. Does anyone have dimensions for that size table? I also want it to be a bit wider than normal so there is plenty of room in the center of the table for the food. Thanks in advance! Also, are there any matching farm side table plans?

    • Shelly Southerland

      and if I make it any longer or wider should I add a center support?

  • Sadie Mae John

    Do you recommend trimming the rounded corners of the top planks? And did you glue them together or join them with pocket holes before attaching to base? Thanks! Love your work and thanks for all the plans.

    I fell in LOVE with this table! We’re a family of 7 too and I just wasn’t able to find a long skinny table to suite my desire at a reasonable price point. When I stumbled on your plans for that price I knew I had to give it a try…mind you I make cakes not wood so I went into this as green as they come ๐Ÿ˜‰ with my dad by my side and all his tools at hand he guided me and taught me along the way with the table and I did the bench almost completely unassisted. We modified to skinny the top and flipped the supports on the base towards the top ctr vs bottom. I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for your plans and details! It took about 3 days from start to finish and I’m completely thrilled with it!

  • Sarah raper

    I made this table about 6 months ago and I loved it! Turned out perfect! Now it seems to be warping and the planks are now parting and I have no idea why?! Can someone please help me? The table does not look go now! What did I do wrong?

    I love this table. I built mine in one day, about 12 hours.

    • Irene Wong-Montgomery

      I see that you have used this table outdoors–I’ve been thinking the same thing ๐Ÿ™‚ Have you had any issue with swelling wood?

      • Joseph Devitz

        It is under a roof so It stays directly out of the weather, no problems yet.

    • Stephanie Moller Simpson

      Did you use the dark walnut stain? Our table is built (my husband’s first time to build anything) and we are nervous to stain it in fear of messing it up. I read somewhere (after the table was finished, of course) that pine is hard to stain. Any tips with staining that you couod ahare? Yours looks great!

      • Joseph Devitz

        I used Minwax poly stain, antique walnut but brushed it on one section/board at a time and wiped it out right away to keep as much wood grain contrast as possible then hand rubbed two coats of satin poly on.
        Here is a picture with a matching bench made by reducing the trestle leg measurements by half.

        • Stephanie Moller Simpson

          Thank you!

        • Sarah

          Did you find the bench plans on here too?

          • Joseph Devitz

            No I didn’t. I basically took the dimensions for the table and reduced by half with a few modifications.

      • Sarah Tipton

        I know this is late, but oil based wood conditioner!

  • Sara Hobson

    I love how you stained this table. what kind and color stain did you use?

    • Joseph Devitz

      I’m sorry the name escapes me, I have many stains and chose one I thought would look good. I use Minwax poly stains but I hand rub it in, two coats and then 2 coats of matte poly hand rubbed in.

  • Angela @ Life in Velvet

    Gorgeous! Fabulous job! I can’t believe you did that for $65. It’s stunning. Pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Joseph Devitz

      This Picture doesn’t show it, but I did build a matching bench and grill table. For the measurements, I just cut the ones for the table in half and it was perfect height.

  • Paul Mahoney

    Not sure if you’re paying attention to this….but what is an easy way to scale this table down to 5 feet (60″) for the tables top?

    Will this table base support a granite top instead of the wood?

    My husband and I are building this table in the next week. Do you have any suggestions for making the table top removable? We’ll be moving in the next 9 months and there’s no way this could be removed from our current residence in one peice…

    I just might try this! I just conquered a mini table or aka doggie throne, so I should be able to do this too!

  • Korrie@RedHenHome

    Love this table, and am considering it for our dining room. Can you tell me, please, if there is enough room for a tall adult to *comfortable* sit at the end of the table? Knocking knees against the supports would be a deal-breaker ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • katrina

    Trying to make this at home for my first furniture project. I’m only on step 1! I tried attaching the 45 degree pieces with glue and 2″ screws from the inside of the post.

    The 45deg pieces don’t seem very sturdy. They can easily be moved/wiggled slightly. Is this normal and it will be better once supported by the rest of the pieces?

    What’s the best way to attach them so they are strong? I don’t want to go ahead with the rest of the table build only to have the whole project sub-par.

    • Suzanne Dorbert

      You need to make pocket holes for the screws

  • I just built this wonderful table, as an indoor dinning table. I love it! The only thing that I would add to the plans is to secure the table top with scrap wood pieces screwed up from the bottom. Thank you for sharing these plans!

  • I love this idea….it is perfect for anyone…and it looks pretty sturdy. does it tip over easy though?

    We are almost done building ours and then we are going to work on the bench. We are also wanting to put some chairs with ours. Do you have any suggestions for chairs that would go with this table?

    • Parsons chairs on the ends. You can cover them with your favorite color cover. Anna’s Linens has them for 9.99 ea. Look on Craigslist for used chairs.

      • Meagan

        We are using all wood antique chairs from thrift stores and antique stores. They are all different but have the same tie on cushion so they are “matching.” Just make sure the chairs don’t already have cushions. I love the different wood stain finishes on all of them coming together with the different stain of the table.

  • Heather Turner

    can you post some pictures of the chairs you used to go with table? i love the idea of indoor farmhouse table, but am having a hard time finding chairs that would compliment and be cost efficient. thanks.

    • Yes! So easy… The ends would be the exact same. Then, you would just need to adjust your runners to the length you want and the top boards as well. The middle pieces will sit at a different angle, but attaching them will be the same. Hope this helps! Sorry for the late reply! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am thinking of using these plans and just raising the height by 5inches to make it 35 inches high. Its absolutly beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • johanna

    1 more question- what kind of sealant or finishing coat did you use on top of the stain. we’ll be using ours as a dining table and i want to make sure it is sealed thoroughly. thanks again!

    • The outdoor stain had a sealant in it as well! So… That’s all I put on it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This table is absolutely gorgeous! I love it and want one! Do you think it would have been easier to stain all of the wood before you cut and put it together? It looks like there are a lot of tight places that would have made it a little more difficult to stain after it was assembled. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

  • Jennifer

    This is such a great project! So happy with the results so far, but I do have 1 question. How are the boards attached to form the table top? Just screw into from the top surface and putty over the screw heads? Or do you try to hide them dome how from underneath?

  • This is beautiful. I’ve been wanting to build a new kitchen table, and came across this on Pinterest, while looking or inspiration. So simple, yet looks so awesome.

  • Sue

    It’s a totally GREAT table! However, I would’ve like to have seen you “bite the bullet”, so to speak, and use cedar or redwood for this specific project. The table would have cost more (still not anywhere near $2K) but those woods are much more appropriate for this table’s outdoor placement. It may not directly be exposed to driving rain, but it’s going to be subject to huge swings in temperature and humidity. I would be concerned that despite the waterproof finish, the pine will cup and twist.

    • Shanty2Chic

      I know what you mean Sue, but for $65 I can build a new one later ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I am going to need to make my table shorter, either 6 or 7 feet long instead of the 8 feet. What kind of modifications will I need to make? Can I just do it shorter and everything at the base will be smooshed closer together?

      • Yes Danielle! Did you get it done? I would love to see pictures! I am so sorry for the late reply!

          Hello, I have finished constructing the table. I am so thankful for the plans. Do I need to sand the pine wood before I stain it? It’s my first project. THANK YOU, Diana

    Thanks so much for building, sharing and motivating

    • Shanty2Chic

      I will try… You cut the boards at 45 degrees. And then make sure the two ends you cut aren’t parallel to each other, that way they sit the right way. Hope this helps!!

      Thanks Nicole! I used a semi-transparent outdoor stain tinted to the color espresso. Found it at Lowe’s! Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is absolutely gorgeous! Now to find the time to make my own!

  • Wow, that’s the cutest DYI table I’ve seen and so easy and straightforward to make. Wish I needed a new table at the cottage,or maybe a tree will fall on the old one he he! This definitely makes my pinterest board.

  • Lis West

    I love the table…but for $65? What type of wood did you use? I like red cedar for outside projects, but I know that red cedar would be quite a bit more. Is there a wood that would weather the elements as well as red cedar but cost much less?

  • Awesome! I told my hubby I want one! One of these days I’m gonna just make something myself – if I can get away with using his tools!

  • Danielle

    Can you tell me what stain you used? This is gorgeous!

    • Shanty2Chic

    Oh my, I really like this table, alot! I would even like it for an indoor table. Great job on building it!!! I also really liked your family/picture blocks that you posted…they are awesome and on my list for next project. Keep up the great work, yours and ana’s projects are so inspiring.

  • Candice dolan

    Love love love! This looks like my 40th birthday present! Great job! Did you use pressure treated wood?

    • Shanty2Chic

      We have a large covered patio. I decided to use plain old pine. I did use an outdoor stain/sealant in one to finish it off. Hope this helps!

      • Giggling Gerty

        So….. if you were making this to go in an uncovered patio, would you still use the ordinary pine? P.s. love it and the price tag !!!!

  • SOO BRILLIANT!! I love this…and looks like even a novice like me could build it!!

    Thanks for sharing
