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??
