Farmhouse Entry Table

10 Materials
4 Hours

Farmhouse furniture is super trendy right now, but I'd like to share this simple build with you! This table is perfect for an entry way or hallway and I love it! Here's how I made it :)

First, gather the wood and materials.

Then begin by building building the two side panels. Line up 2 of your panels parallel to each other and then place a small panel close to the bottom and in the middle of the two panels. Nail together.

You'll then lay two panels across the bottom of your two side pieces. This is the bottom shelf of the table!

This is how it should look. Then nail them together.

Then, lay the table top on the top of the structure and nail it in place.

Once the table is fully built, it's time to apply the stain.

I decided to stain the table legs a darker stain. Then I dry brushed a white coat over the stain on the legs for a distressed look.

The two tone look is so beautiful, I am so happy with the outcome!

      Your post says nail it on. Your supply list calls for screws. Not sure which one you mean. How can I tell this from the photos?

    Hiya, I'm loving these plans but I'm slightly confused. How do you get the 2 lengths of 2x4 to fit in between each side of the table legs if they're only 7" apart? I'm probably missing something here lol

      Actual dimension of the a 2x4 are 1 1/12 x 3 1/2 giving you the 7 in.
