For a while now I’ve wanted a new dining table for my apartment. The one I have now has seen better days so it’s something I’ve been wanting to update. I looked for months for a new table and chairs (seriously, months and months) and I just couldn’t commit to anything. Nothing was exactly what I had pictured in my mind. After looking around on some other blogs, I saw that people were building their own dining tables. Once I saw that, I knew it was the perfect solution for me. I’ve collected a few ideas online and lucky for me, Krista’s boyfriend has great carpentry skills. I guess even luckier for me, he’s offered to help me with the construction! I thought I would share a few links to other hand crafted tables I’ve found and am using for inspiration for my own. I’m hoping to have the table done in the next month or so, and will be posting photos once it’s finished!

Have you ever built a piece of furniture for your home?
