throwback thursday.. diy farm table..




pete and i love to do diy projects.. and for this throwback thursday i wanted to share with you one of my favorite projects we've done.. this is the original post here.. and the plans and detailed instructions on how to make it can be found here.  i love this table and we use it often!!



pete cut all the wood on a saturday afternoon..


using the detailed instructions every step of the way..


then the next morning he started to assemble the table..


by that afternoon he was already starting to add the top..


by mid afternoon the table was built!!


doesn't it look purrty!!


he then cut the center piece for the wine/beer cooler..


we used a rain gutter.. and pete cut it down to fit..


it fits perfect.. *whew*


i was so pleased with how well this project was coming together..



then he started to stain it.. using coffee, vinegar and steel wool.. the idea for the stain we used can be found here..


the staining came along quiet nicely..


it's amazing it was just coffee, vinegar and steel wool..


then pete put a clear satin finish on it..


i seriously love this table..
