Happy Monday! Guess what? It's DIY dining table week :D
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw a few sneak peeks of the progress we made on our table over the weekend.
We finished building the second "X" leg Saturday night:
Then on Sunday afternoon, I started to attach the hardware to make sure the legs would support the weight of the top of the table:
When my boyfriend got home from work, we flipped the table over and stood it on its legs to see what would happen and ... it held! You guys - we built a freakin' table! :D
We left the table standing on its legs overnight to see if it would break, bow, bend, etc. but so far, so good! If it's still standing when I get home tonight, we're going to flip the table over, remove all of the hardware, patch the remaining screw holes/gaps, and sand everything down.
We're much further behind than I thought we'd be but if we can get all of the above done tonight, hopefully I can start staining the table Tuesday night and polying Wednesday night. I'm really hoping I can share the finished table with you on Friday so keep your fingers crossed for me!
What'd you get done this weekend? Am I the only one who falls behind on projects? One minute I'm ahead of the game and the next I'm 20 steps behind!
