A few weeks ago, I posted a picture of our dining room table on instagram. I immediately started getting questions on where we purchased it, but the thing is, we didn't buy it. We made it!
A couple of years ago, we were on the prowl for a new dining table, but had the worst luck finding one we liked. They were either to small, to traditional or just not our style. We knew we wanted something mid-century modern but with a rustic twist but that didn't seem to exist. That's when we had the idea to make our own.
We found a wood farm (is that a thing?) on craigslist that had thousands (maybe millions) of reclaimed boards. The boards we picked out were once a barn! How freakin' fun is that? We brought those bad boys home and started the search for bad ass legs. We eventually decided on hairpin legs.
Perfect, right?! The ultimate mid-century legs to go with the ultimate rustic top.
Once we had all our supplies, it was time to make that table our bitch.
The wood was so gorgeous, we wanted to keep it au naturale. We didn't use a stain, but we did seal it with a light coat of polyurethane.
We lined all of our boards up, and attached them to each other with three 2x4's and drilled in the legs.
Boom. We now have a table.
You don't get much easier than that! #amiright
