This summer, I built a farmhouse table for my dining area. I have absolutely ZERO pictures of the process (I guess I was too busy building the thing), so here are the final pictures!
The base is made out of fur, while the top is pine. In order to make sure they stained the same, I did a light coat of Minwax English Chestnut on the pine before covering everything in one coat of Minwax Honey. If I do say so myself, I think I did a great job matching the woods together!
I used a water-based polyurethane to seal the table, putting on 4 or 5 coats on the tabletop and only two coats on the base.
Notice my newly finished window seat in the background!
I still need to either find new chairs or build benches to mach the table. The wood chairs that are there now are the chairs that go with my old table. The cloth chairs are from Ikea. I want to keep those but recover them with a slip from Etsy. Also, notice my chandelier! I snagged it from Lowe's on clearance for $35!!!!
