DIY farmhouse kitchen table

  • Leave a Review
  • I’m super excited to say we built our first DIY farmhouse kitchen table! After looking at dozens of stores I could not find what I was looking for. They were either too big or too small for our space. The tables were also never the right color. I wanted white legs and a dark top. After not finding the look I wanted, I knew I would either have to refinish a piece or build something. We finished this piece for under $100. Yea baby!!

    With the help of my hubs we built this awesome table one Friday night. It only took a few hours to assemble and then we painted it the next day. I’m in love with how it turned out! It was surprisingly not as hard as I thought it would be.

    I love the dark wood against the white wood. Now I’m tempted to build a side table! It’s addicting!

    Find the exact measurements and directions for this table HERE. I did not use the thick legs (although I LOVE them) because they were $100 EACH and at that price I would rather just buy a kitchen table. ;) They are amazing though! I found my legs at Lowes for $15 a piece making the cost of this table less than $100! Wahoo! Luckily I had leftover white paint, so all I needed to buy was the stain. I also already had a bench from Walmart, so I bought another one on sale for $40. It would have cost me around that to make one, so I figured it was easier to just buy it. I’m all about saving where I can!

    I’m in love with the end results and we are enjoying our new kitchen table! Here’s a few more pic’s from around the dining area.

    *UPDATE*

    Many of you have asked on facebook and instagram what color of yellow the walls are. After digging around in the basement I found the color the original owner used. YAY! It looks like it was Honey Blush from Sherwin Williams with extra white. See the exact formula below. Oh and the chandelier is from Pottery Barn and the benches are from Walmart. :)
