Diy rustic dining table, custom desk design plans - How to Do

Categories: Woodworking Projects For Beginners | Author: admin 30.09.2012

The original inspiration came from the retired Rencourt Extension Dining Table from ZGallerie. Until then, I'll just have to live vicariously through Ez Pudewa of Creature Comforts who recently built this rustic-modern dining table from scratch.
I had pretty much had Ethan convinced to build me the whole table from scratch when I came up with the most genius idea of my life.
While Ethan worked to build a table top (feel free to check out his post to find out how), I painted the base. The table legs had a bit of trouble standing up while drying, so Lucy’s favorite Barbie, GI Joe offered to help out.
For the table top, Ethan used Rust-Oleum’s Ultimate Wood Stain in Early American and then finished it off with several coats of water-based polyurethane.


PB could hire your kids to distress their pine table tops and then sell them for more money!
She saw a gorgeous X-based table from ZGallerie and hit up her friend Ana White to draw up the plans. I chose to paint the main pieces of the table frame while disassembled, and then painted the rest (that didn’t touch the table top) once assembled. Plus, our knock-off dining room table is of higher quality – the table top is oak, while PB uses pine. The sliders, bought brand new, would have cost over $100, plus the cost of wood, table legs, screws, and latches would have hiked the cost up even higher. Seriously, almost $1,600 for a pine table top…it wouldn’t last a week with my kids!


As someone who spent nearly a year and a half begging for her husband to build her a table, I know what a big accomplishment getting him to do it is!
The round table was not real space efficient, and the chairs were so large not many people could fit around the table and the chairs kept banging up the walls.
I love this table in particular – the off-white base, the sturdy nature of the table, the size and ability to extend, the stained top, and its slightly rustic feel without being too casual.
