A Dining Table for the Garden with Free & Easy Plans
Hello everyone! I was looking for an end-of-winter project to bridge these last dreary days before spring. This outdoor dining table was just the thing.
My husband and I (mostly my husband) built it from very basic lumber— mainly 2×10s and 2×4s. It was inspired by the style of long farmhouse tables, particularly one that is for sale from Anthropologie for nearly $2,000. However, this simple build cost us only $125, not including the stain for the finish and took only about 8-10 hours to complete.
If you need a garden project to get you through cold, gray March, you might give this one a try. I keep peeking outside to see it on the patio. It’s a little promise of all the eating in the garden that is to come in a few short weeks.
Here’s a link to the free and easy plans we used: “http://ana-white.com/2012/06/plans/fancy-x-farmhouse-table.”
