Restoration Hardware Inspired Trestle Dining Table

Good Evening Everyone!! Today I have new plans to share that I am SOOOOO beyond excited about!! First off, I have drooled over this style table from Restoration Hardware for the longest time, and I have wanted a more farmhouse style dining table ever since I built my West Elm knockoff table! I didn’t have the heart to get rid of that table though, my Dad and I worked together on it and I haven’t even used it for a year yet, so I couldn’t justify building a new one!! That was until we moved, and we now have a breakfast area and a dining area!! Woohoo!! I could have my cake and eat it too…don’t ever let anyone tell you that’s not possible…It is possible!! Lol!! Eeeek!! I was able to keep my old one and build a new one!! Here is the new table I built this past week!!

So I bet you want to know how I built those beautiful legs, right?! I don’t have a lathe and I probably couldn’t turn something this beautiful if I did…but, I can’t tell you here… you are going to have to head on over to Build Something and find out just how I was able to do it (P.S. It was super easy… if you have a little time)!!! I built this table with all scrap wood except for the 2x10s on top…pretty fancy what my scrap pile turned into huh?! Lol!! But even if you don’t have a scrap pile yet, you can build the whole table for less than 75 bucks!! Yep!! Amazing right!!

Have you been to Build Something before? If you have then you know how awesome it is, but if you haven’t here’s a little info: Build Something is Kreg’s amazing new website where you and I both can go and post furniture plans to share with everyone, or you can just browse amazing plans you want to build!! They have so many great plans from bloggers, regular joes, even ‘master builders’ as I like to call them that work for Kreg and post cool plans!! You can make lists of what you want to build, you can like and comment or review a plan that you have built!! It is really a great website, and you can connect with others who enjoy woodworking…plus you get a FREE tshirt when you submit your first plan!! Win-win-win!!

    1. Hey Margaret! I actually used regular old pine found at your big box stores for the top, and the legs were pretty much from my scrap bin! Lol!! If you need a materials and cut list, I have updated the link in the post to go directly to the table on Build Something’s website and it’s all there for you!! Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. I can’t seem to get the plans 🙁 I was so inspired by this table I am dying to build it. Is there a direct link to the free plans online? Thank you!!

  2. I love this table and love the finish. I want to try and do a table top in this finish. Do you do the white let it dry, gray let it dry, jacobean? Or do you do the layers while the stains are still wet? Thanks, and amazing job!

    1. Hey Amy!!! I am so sorry I missed your comment somehow!! On this specific table, I did not let it dry thoroughly between coats! I have actually done this finish both ways, I have let it dry between coats and I have layered them while wet, and honestly it didn’t seem to make much of a difference!! Lol!! The main thing that I think made the most difference was just the white being a real thick first coat! Hope this helps and that it’s not too late!! Sorry again, and thanks so much for the sweet comment!!

  3. OMG! U did was I was trying to figure out for some time now. I just couldn’t wrap my head around achieving those big chunky legs. THANK you Thank you!!! This is beautiful and absolutely amazing!!

    1. Oh my gosh Timisha!! I’m so sorry, I thought I responded to this comment the day I received it!! I just noticed that I obviously didn’t!! LOL!!
