Playroom Kids Table DIY

Hey guys!!

Since building my last kids table for the playroom, I have added 2 new kiddos to the picture.  I knew it was time to “upsize” my table.  I had a design in mind and worked with  Ana, who delivered with these great plans  for a kids table.  I am in love!  It fits my space perfectly, and there are room for friends!  Here it is all finished!

I will share some tips and photos here, and you can see the full set of these plans on Ana’s site!

For starters… I had this table totally built in under an hour and a half.  It really was a very simple, basic build.  My total cost for lumber was under $65.  For a table that seats 8 kiddos, I would say that’s pretty darn good!

You start by building 3 legs…

The middle one is just a bit different…

For the 2×2’s, I used my Kreg Jig® to attach them at the corners.

I would have used them here too in the middle of the table, but I had already attached the 1×2’s.  I had to use wood screws to attach it there.  If I could go back, I would have put some pocket holes on those 1×2’s.  Lesson learned!

To attach the table top, I laid it flat on the ground and put my table base on top of it.  I then used wood screws from the bottom and drilled through my 2×2’s to attach.  Easy peasy!

For the stain I used my very favorite…

Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut

And since my kids have been known to make a few messes, I finished the table with this…

Rust-Oleum Ultimate Polyurethane with Soft Touch

It’s awesome!  It dries very quickly, and you don’t see brush strokes.  Love it!

That’s it! Pretty simple!  Here are a few more pictures!

So… What do you think??
