We Made It!: Triple Pedestal Farmhouse Table

Posted on

When I married my husband 8 years ago, I had no idea this kind of talent was hiding out in there.

Really. He’s never built a bookshelf, a picture frame, anything. One day he decided that he would build us a new dining room table instead of buying one, so we searched for plans and came up with this one from Ana White’s DIY site. He bought all the tools (my garage is crazy now), and…well, built a table! And a bench!

You can find the tutorial {here}, and here are some snapshots of us along the way!

Legs built and runner installed. We put some boards along the top just to see what it would look like in the end!

Assembling the framed tabletop. This was, by far, the most difficult part. We learned a lot during this step, and the next table will be even better!

Tabletop and legs complete!

Once everything was stained and poly'd, we moved it inside to attach the legs to the tabletop.

Finished! It was a lot of work, especially for a first project, but I am so proud that he got it done!

I think the legs are super cool, and the runner through them really makes it unique. The bench is just a mini-model of the table, minus the framed top. We just went for the plank look on that.

We used (and LOVED!) Rusteloum’s Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut. I purchased the chairs off of Overstock and the pendant light from Lowe’s. We are actually building another table right now in a different style to see which one we like better, lol! And now that I know what Greg his capable of, my honey-do list just got a whole lot longer!
