Dumpster Dive Produces DIY Farmhouse Table

About a year ago, a neighbor of ours was cleaning out their house and had a dumpster ordered. As I was passing by one day, I saw chunky table legs sticking out of the dumpster. I stopped the van and had to get out and check them out. They were solid, chunky legs that I knew would be beautiful on a farmhouse table. I rescued them immediately. The have been sitting in our garage ever since I grabbed them last year. I didn’t want to buy new wood and add them to the legs. I really wanted to create a table that had character and charm by using rescued wood.

Fast forward to about a month ago, when we were able to get a great deal on some tongue and groove barn wood. When we were picking it up, I told my husband that we were finally going to be able to bring the table legs to life. I painted the table legs white and we started working on the table top.

We attached the barn boards to the top of the legs and I used a {aff} HomeRight deck stainer to stain the boards. This made the process to easy!!!
