Dining Room Table

My husband Chris, and I were really eager to get a dining room table and chairs so that we could start inviting our friends over for formal dining. We started to price out tables and realized that we had expensive taste (when it came to dining room tables). We really liked the rustic look, as well as harvest tables. Chris decided that it would be both fun and cost-effective to build his own table. He did some research until he was confident to make his own plan. He has promised to write step-by-step instructions on how to build a table so I can post it for those of you who are interested in giving it a try **stay tuned!**

The table was made to seat 8 comfortably and designed a little taller than your average table because Chris' family is really tall -another benefit to making your own. We purchased the chairs from a great warehouse store in Mississauga, called ARTeFAC. They have an assortment of affordable chairs and really great service.

I absolutely love the table and wish I had taken pictures throughout the process.


  1. wow! I didn't read your post in detail at first, I thought you had picked up the table from a designer store! I would be very curious to see details on its construction. Very impressive!

  2. Thanks!! I've been trying to get Chris to write out the step-by-step of the construction. In his defense his job has been keeping him really busy. Nonetheless, I think your comment will help my case.

  3. This is something my bofriend and I are hoping to tackle later on down the road too! Looks great!
