DIY Farm Table Build Plans and Makeover Ideas
Hi friends! I want to thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my new farm table. Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time, and this one just about jumped out and bit me. My wheels spun so quickly when I saw it, thinking that the present table would really be a perfect solution down at The Little Cottage and the new one could take it’s place. I’ll show you how it looks down there in a few months when I’ve got everything in place. Today, I wanted to share some other gorgeous farm tables I’ve gathered up for you! These are ideas for building your own farm table from scratch, to painting and refinishing one you’ve got or thrifted to give it that farm house feel we all seem to be crazy about. Especially when it comes to tables. The farm table holds a sweet spot in our hearts.

Happy Farm Table Dreaming…
This first beauty has got legs for days. She’s layered up and lovey. With a few curves thrown in for good measure.
This one is sweet & simple and pretty beginner friendly. In fact, the plans promise you can build it in only 5 steps.
The leg placement and center are similar to mine on this gorgeous Z Gallerie inspired design. I love everything about this table and how the planks are laid out for the top.
If you need very precise instructions to follow, you’ll love Her Toolbelt. This site provides a full material and cut list, and incredibly detailed schematics and directions for the entire build and finish process.
Many folks are wild about the blend or farmhouse & modern and this table would be perfect for that combination. Plus, the big bonus? It cost under $100 to build it!!
The curvy legs on this DIY farm table give it serious charm points and make it a bit more formal, just upping it’s versatility with the chair options available and the room style that can orbit around it.
Ashley from Cherished Bliss graciously shared this beautiful table design with us. It’s a trestle style and has a neat industrial elemnet with the pipe center! She’s got great plans laid out for you that’ll make building your own much easier.
If you like your farmhouse style on the sleeker, more modern side… you’ll love this tables lines and finish, plus you can make the benches too (yep, there is a tutorial for that) for a complete set. Lots more savings that way.
I couldn’t share about building without sharing Shanty 2 Chic. This farm table is just one of so many amazing build plans they share. If you are DIY’centric, you’ll want to give them a look, if you haven’t already.
This makeover is really exciting because this table style is very plentiful. (you’ll probably recognize it in the before photos) Now, it looks anything but common with the gorgeous upgrade it got. The finish for the top is covered in the tutorial. It’s dreamy and looks perfectly old world aged. I love it!!
If you take a peek at this cutie, you’ll get to see a whole room reveal as well. The table makeover is so pretty, and I love how with the new finish, and the right chairs, it’s beautifully current & updated!
Farm table? Oh, is there a farm table… the Flamingo art has got my heart all aflutter. Okay, I’ll focus. Janet tends to enchant with her spaces, many of which have been featured in prominent magazines. She’s an incredibly talented decorator and DIYer. As you can see in this photo.
The legs on this table are chunk-tastic! I love how paint really shows off the details and makes every little curve more pronounced. All the better to appreciate them. I’m looking forward to the One Room Challenge reveal of the kitchen.
If you like a little ‘french’ with your farmhouse, you’ll adore this gorgeous set! It looks doubly stunning on that amazing brick floor. The details throughout this house are incredible. In fact, I think we need to court her for a home tour. hehe
Couldn’t finish up without sharing this beautiful, and super-affordable farm table makeover from Debbie & Murphy (pictured). You won’t believe where she found this table. Just goes to show you’ve gotta keep an open mind. And a paint brush handy.
Now, if you are really, extra lucky… you get to travel to France and buy a real live antique farm table, like Kim from Savvy Southern Style did. It’s so pretty, I can see why she feel for it. I still recall her anticipation waiting for it to arrive to her home. I bet this one could really tell some stories! I had to add it because the vintage style is so pretty.
Now, if building your own farm table, making one over, or picking up a fabulous antique one in France aren’t your thing, no worries! I’ve been working hard to find Brand New farm tables with a similar look & style to mine, that you can buy or order online. I”ll share that article tomorrow, so make sure to subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss it, and if you already are, I’ll see you tomorrow!! ~Shannon
