Inspired by Shanty-2-Chic Farmhouse Pedestal Table
I am so excited to show you my first wood working project. I had a steep learning curve to overcome.
I decided to use pine for several reasons.
- I think the knots look rustic and beautiful.
- It’s affordable. (I love that when my friend’s kids come over I can sincerely say that I’m not concerned with how they treat the table.)
- It’s easily accessible.
The first thing I did was build the table top. I bought about 9 or 10 2x2s and I started connecting them. I knew I wanted a rustic country look and I selected pieces based on unique knots and other patterns.
