Rustic and Yet Elegant Dining Tables

Adore your Place

Our home right now is by no means a forever home, and until that time or home comes I have been exercising creative ideas for decorating the space. I recently purchased these amazing chairs (which we will get into next time), and now it’s all about the table. Hence the rustic, yet elegant dining tables you will see here.

I have looked everywhere for the perfect size, look, etc. but everything is too big, 60-84″ when I need 50″ max, (or too high, no thanks to the pub height table trend!) and so it looks like a DIY situation is at hand. What’s a girl to do but call her Dad of course! And the verdict? Dad thinks we can do it! Hooray!

What I’m thinking is this: pair four of the six chairs I bought with one of these custom made table beauties. I want a table top with a relatively dark stain atop a base which I will most certainly paint blue, yes the same blue as the chairs. Shhh, stop asking so many questions about the chairs! Patience!!

Truth be told, what I really, really wanted was to create a banquette on one side with some pretty feature chairs, but with the age of my boys being still fairly young (potential dining mishaps for all my non-parent readers) it seems best to forgo the dainty upholstery and feed my fabric love on the seats of the chairs alone.

If you would like to attempt this project with me I will be using these Husky Farmhouse Table plans found at Ana White.

And then I watch an episode of Cracking Antiques and think, hey! Maybe I can find an antique table! But alas, it took me six months to find chairs. Make the dining table! And of course it will be an awesome project to do with my Dad. Win, win. Stay tuned for the chairs!
