DIY Farmhouse Table and Bench

I love looking at all kinds of DIY projects, but I admit that when I see people actually build their own furniture from scratch, I have all kinds of admiration for them. I mean, that takes some serious skill and vision. For example, this DIY farmhouse table and bench from Ashley at Domestic Imperfection is nothing short of spectacular. It was a group effort…a project that she worked on along with her husband and her brothers-in-law–and the result looks like something they could have spent thousands of dollars on.

Ashley claims that it’s really not that difficult to build. I think she might by lying. 😀 Actually, it really doesn’t look too difficult as long as you have plenty of workspace and the right tools. To see the details, head over to Domestic Imperfection.

  1. Ashley is right, it’s not hard at all! My husband and father built our table and two benches in a weekend. Stain and varnish took another two days and then we let it cure for a week since it was July in the South with ridiculous humidity. 🙂

  2. You will be surprised at the amount of people who
    start off at an higher level and totally forget about
    the beginners stuff. It is heavier in the low end and feathery
    light in the high end. These beginner models were typically similar to a digital piano, with built in rhythms and functions while
    not having weighted keys.
