DIY Farmhouse Table for $65

I was wanting a farmhouse table for my back porch. For only $65 of lumber I was able to recreate a $2000 Restoration Hardware table. I opted for pine to save on cost, but this can also be made in cedar to last outdoors much longer. It would also make a great indoor dining table. You can see the full tutorial at http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/06/fancy-x-farmhouse-table.html

    Great job! If kept out of the weather, pine should work well for this. I giggled when I remembered a few years ago I wanted a 30x36" simple table for a breakfast room. I found a place that made tables and they wanted $2,000 for a small table! I know reclaiming wood is prized by many and I appreciate those who do it and those who want it for restoration. Otherwise, it is just used lumber! And unless it was designed and made by Frank Lloyd Wright, I can not imagine paying that for a simple table! I went and bought one at a big furniture store!
