My favorite tv show is Fixer Upper. I love Joanna Gaines’s modern, rustic style and how she uses farmhouse style tables in her spaces. I wanted to have one for our new home, but knew that I couldn’t pay for a new one. I saw this one on Pottery Barn and fell in love.
I came across these plans on the Shanty2Chic blog. The lumber supplies cost around $100, but I bought a Kreg jig, an electric drill and some other supplies, so my cost was higher than that.
It took me quite a while because I didn’t have a table saw to “rip” the 2×4’s down. It just goes to show that having the right tools makes all the difference. I wish I had taken more pictures of the process, but I made it before starting a blog!
It is just the right size for our kitchen and is very stable and solid.
Thanks for stopping by!
