Hello and happy Monday friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’m hanging out at The Home Depot blog today, sharing the tutorial for my super simple 5-step Farmhouse Table. If you’d like to get your feet wet in building furniture, this dining table is the perfect beginner-level project. Using minimal tools with off-the-shelf lumber and pre-fabricated furniture legs, building a DIY farmhouse table doesn’t get any easier than this.
Head on over to The Home Depot blog for the full tutorial.
Curious about how to get that weathered, farmhouse finish? Here’s a helpful video:

I love this!! What color stain did you use? And do you think it would be stable enough if I made it a little longer to accommodate 3 chairs on each side?
Thanks Sarah! For the stain, I created a custom color by mixing weathered oak and special walnut. Experiment on a scrap piece of wood until you get the desired shade/tone. As for modifying the length, as long as you add enough center supports, the added length should be fine. Hope that helps!
Yes, thanks so much!
How long did you end up making the table to fit 3 chairs??

You built a really beautiful table. so talented! What type of product do you use to seal the wood and make it shine?
Thanks so much Stephanie! I use a variety of top coats depending on the project needs. For this farmhouse table, I used a wipe-on poly in a semi-gloss sheen.

Can you give us an idea of the total cost of materials?
Did you use a router for the edges of the table top or did you just sand them?
I just sanded the edges, but routing them would be a really nice touch!

Thanks for causing almost an hour trying (not gotten) in 2 sessions
to get these plans!
This 80 yr old Was going to probably adjust to use a 28 or 30″ solid
door (routed edge).
Wife has been after me several years to get a kitchen table in store to fit.
