Dining Table Dash

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!


  1. Can't wait to see it! I love X legged tables!!

  2. I hope it's ready by Friday! The thing is a beast though and I think it's a little too tall so we may need to cut the legs down or something otherwise all of our guests are going to need booster seats haha

  3. Awesome!! I am so impressed by people who build their own furniture. Loving the x-legs!

  4. I love the X leg tables!!! And you're not the only who gets behind! I just finished my second curtain. Took me a whole to get back to it and get another one done!

  5. Thanks Kelly! The legs are my favorite part too :)

    Crystal - Getting behind is the worst, isn't it? Can't wait to see your finished curtains!
