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!  This is my very favorite build yet!

I have been in serious need for an outdoor table to seat my family of 7.  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.  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??  It was a super easy build as well.

I used Gorilla Wood Glue and deck screws for most of the construction! 😉

I also used my Kreg Jig® on a few parts!

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

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

    Do you normally use pine for a dining table top?

    How necessary are the cross bar along the ground and the two diagonals that attach to it? Are they decorative or for stability? (because your Leasha table is similar but without those but I like the decorative X of these better).

    I plan to build this, but for inside. Making it shorter doesn’t seem to be an issue, but I want to cut down the curved ends of the boards like you’ve been showing to get rid of the “crumb catcher”. Do you think we can still use the same pieces of wood or should we use wider pieces? Especially for the top? We don’t want the top to be smaller than 37″ so I’m debating using 2×12’s ripped down to make up for the lost inches when cutting the 2x10s. Thoughts?

      I am wanting to build this for inside as well and I too am wanting a smooth top without the crumb catchers. Did you have any success using the 2x12s?

    I can’t figure out how to attach the table top to the base, can you please help?
