    I’m new to all this, but I love the concept. Here’s my dilemma. I need a table for normal day use can seat 6, but when pulled open, can seat 12. My husband and I have 5 adult children and one by one they are getting married and it would fantastic to have a table that we could pull open somehow to comfortably seat everyone when we have Sunday dinners. I don’t even mind stacking two 6 seat table tops on each other, then lifting one off to sit side by side, but how would the supports work so it doesn’t look to crowded and also safely secure when everything is open and stretched out. Help? Thank you!

    Hi there, I love your banner letters, would it be possible to add numbers to it? I specifically need a 5 and a 0, for my husband’s 50th birthday. Thank you!

      Never mind, I found the numbers. I swear they weren’t there a few minutes ago. Thanks for the free printables, greatly appreciated.

    I love your floating shelves and have been dying to make some. Here’s my problem… we don’t have 2x3s, only 2x4s. Since a 2×4 is really 2×3.5 that would make a 2×3 really 2×2.5. Which measurement do you use, 2×3 or 2×2.5?

    When you are putting poly urethane on your tables you build, do you do just the table top or the entire table? Legs etc?

    • Joseph S Dailey on February 8, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    DIY storage idea, please help! Hello, why are my 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws going through top piece of wood, am I doing something wrong please help. Also this was my first kregjig project, but my test pocket hole and pocket hole screw worked just fine. I can’t figure it out. It won’t let me upload the pictures I took, says their top big.

    • Shawn on February 13, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      try making the collar on the drill bit a little close to the end. This will make the pocket hole not quite as deep and the screws won’t pop through.

    I love your ideal with the pictures, but i can’t get my messages to print all the way. I cuts them off at the end. the one that says SO VERY BLESSED, at the end it cuts off the B. I am using the Cardstock paper size 8.5 in. x11 in. and my printer is set for that. what am i doing wrong?? Thanks MJ

    Any plans to build a canopy bed like this one (complete with tutorial) in the near future? 🙂

  14. Kristen Gillingham on September 23, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    Just wanted to say thank-you for the great plans! I asked my boyfriend to build me this lovely kitchen table- he was obviously up for it since it meant he got to purchase a new mitre saw! He hasn’t built anything since his high school shop days. It turned out way better than I could ever imagine, and the best part is I know there will be more home-made furniture in the future 🙂

    I need to make las vegas hotel banners for a show..what kind of letters can I string up.

  16. germaine on September 3, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    Awesome class of women! My picture is a tiny wooden rocking horse I made with a band saw, but my Dad and I made a child-size one for a grandson. I can’t seem to locate that picture! Since then my Dad has passed away, but I have all his power tools and use them when I can. I am the only daughter among 6 boys.

    I wanted to share with you how much I appreciate your site and project ideas/instructions! Today I completed the Hanging Basket Wood Stand with my Girl Scouts to earn their Cadette Woodworking badge! They did an awesome job and had a great time doing it. Thanks again for all you do!

    • Shanty2Chic on December 3, 2014 at 9:46 pm

      I am just now seeing this photo Beth and it made my night! LOVE it!

    I love the plate holder and I’m adding it to my to do list. I’m also loving the chalk board shown on one of the pictures to the left of the plate holder. Do you have the plans for that?

  19. Rachal on September 24, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    OK, so this was my first project. I have done at least ten .more since this. I obviously got a little carried away with my letter size, but we just call it ‘ BIG LOVE’.:-)

    Thanks for all your great tutorials.

  20. Jean-Marie Schmidt Breslin on September 18, 2013 at 11:52 am

    I just wanted to say thank you! I figured out how to post a picture and put one on your blog post for this project also.

    I sincerely wanted to thank you girls! For awhile I thought Ana White was crazy but you make it seem easy and doable!

    I love my new table and it is perfect for our new den, we can move it in front of either couch and the kids can roll it out of the way when they play video games.

    LOVE IT!!!

    Thank you so much. Now I have to hang my LOVE sign, mason jar sconces and finish my ledge shelf and then it will be officially den by Shanty 2 Chic!!
