A modern/farmhouse table! A simple way to update your dining area!!
screws 1.5”for table and 2.5” for legs
4 • 2”x10”x 8”
8-9 • 2”x4”x8”
4-5 • 1”x4x8
4 • 2”x6” = 28 1/4” with a 10 degree angle on both ends
2 • 2”x6” = 34 1/4” with a 10 degree angle both ends
4 • 2”x10 = 72”
9 • 1”x4” = 30”
Lay your top boards face down(the top of your boards to the floor) and measure out your frame spaces to get a straight frame for under the table.
3 of the 1”x 4” together at each end of the table 4” in from the ends and 3.5” in from the sides
from there 7.5” in for the next board 8.5 inches in to the middle 8.5” and 7.5” same 3.5” from the side of the table from either side!
Make sure you have the top boards tight together or there will be to much spacing inbetween the boards and use as many screws as you see fit! We used approximately 16 in each board
This is what it will look like on both ends of the table...these are also your brace pieces for the legs to go onto.
Now for the table legs, meet up your angled cuts and screw them together from the outside of the legs, make two of these
Attach your legs at 1.5” in from your brace boards from the side and up against the ends of it from the end of the table! Do this for both sets of legs
This is what it will look like. Make sure you angle your screw in when you drill it other wise it won’t attach properly 😊
This will be what the bottom should like look once your legs and all the screws are in place
Now you’ll need to mix water and white paint together, a soft white is better and if you would rather keep just the natural color of the boards than I would just seal it with a poly acrylic sealer!
once you have your watery white paint, you want to apply it with a clean rag the same way you’d apply stain in thin coats until you have the desired color your wanting. Remember the more coats you add the lighter the wood tone will be! Let this cure for 4-6 hours and apply your sealer.. I applied 4 coats, a new coat every 2-4 hours and than let it cure for 24 hours after your last coat before using!
And now it’s ready to use! Enjoy your new table!!
