DIY Restoration Hardware Farmhouse Table

Create your own Restoration Hardware inspired table.

Throw back to last year when I found this way chic table at Restoration Hardware, HERE.

and seriously, what’s not to love about this table?

I have a similar fancy, sassy chandelier and I love the contrast of the table shown at Restoration Hardware.

Hard meets soft.

Très chic, no?

But the price tag is a bit steep for moi,

I have, like, a million kids, remember?

So… as I am a huge fan of Ana White and her amazing skills – I looked for a similar plan.

AND found one, HERE.

So why am I blogging about plans for this table when you can download your own on Ana-White.com and DIY your own Restoration Hardware table?

Well, you have to remember I have a million kids and I usually hangout with other families with their millions kids and there is never enough room.

A 28″ x 58″ table is crazy small for my type of entertaining.

Go big or go home, right? (courtesy laugh here)

So I drafted new plans – I am a seamstress and can draft patterns, TOTALLY the same thing, right?

I am kidding, I really wouldn’t know, but so far so good.

Anyways,

I bought the wood and got to work, and started Instagramming my progress with the hashtag, #mysawduststurdays (see last post for MORE pictures).

So this afternoon, I want to show you what modifications I applied to Ana’s table plans to recreate this Restoration Hardware table for the needs of my entertaining career…

if only my dinners were as magical. HA!

So I needed a 4′ x 8′ table; long enough to fit a lot of people and wide enough to have different entrees at the table.

Here is my shopping list for one table of this magnitude:

  • 1, 10′ long 4″ x 4″ post, (table legs)
  • 7, 1×6, 8′ or stud length wood, (table top)
  • 2, 1×4,  8′ or stud length wood, (table top ends)
  • 2, 2×2″, 8′ or stud length wood, (joists)
  • 3, 2×3″, 8′ or stud length wood, (end joist and side apron)

Cut list:

  • 10′ long 4″ x 4″ post: cut into 29 7/8″ pieces. (4 table legs)
  • 1×4,  8′ or stud length wood: cut 2 at 89 3/4″ (table top ends)
  • 2×2″, 8′ or stud length wood, cut at 40″ (7 joists)
  • 2×3″, 8′ or stud length wood, cut 2 end joists at 38″ and 2 side aprons at 89 3/4″
  • I also cut 8 triangle with a 45 degree angle out of 2×3 leftovers.

Below are pictures that coincide with Ana Steps, 1-4.

I added an additional 5th step with a decorative angle – it visually softens the joints.

Predrill holes, glue, and secure in place, use the dotted line as an example.

Then I made a bench which sort of follows the same instructions as the table, once you make the table, the bench can be put together in a day with no problemos!

So there you have it! I know I scared my husband for a long time, I have never made anything this cool before! The broken and cracked pieces of wood I found at Lowes Home Improvement gave my husband major stress, but they turned out great and we are so pleased with how it all turned out!

I spent $84 dollars on wood alone.

AWESOME, right?

I would love to make chairs but that is a completely different project, so I ended up painting my old chairs and I love how they turned out!

Next project is the room…

That’s my dining room in a nutshell, any tips or advice are always welcomed! I am a terrible decorator, so I need ALL the help I can get!

I do prefer a style over others and I really enjoy different eclectic decor options that are modern and sassy.

I would LOVE to hear your ideas for this space!

    I like your table much more than the one in the picture from restoration hardware. I love the color of it, especially with the matching bench. You seriously did a fabulous job. :)
