Kitchen Table Inspirations

As I have already posted I want to make a kitchen table that fits in our bump-out.

A rectangular table might give us more room to maneuver.

The round table that’s there now is kind of awkward.

Four white table legs can be seen in the pile of scrap wood in the Cottage.

I already have four perfectly good table legs to start the project.

Rogue Engineer has a cute table with plans.  I like the support board at each end to keep the table square.

The above table was found at “thankful sage farm school.”

I’d like a table that can take rough usage and doesn’t always need a tablecloth. This one was found on Cottage and Vine.

This looks very close to the table I'm planning to build.

Ana White always has great plans for doable projects.

All of these items can be found on my Kitchen Pinterest board.

Do you have a building project?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Oh Jo, I understand your desire! I see things or get an idea and think “I could build that!” but that’s as far as it’s gotten. It will be fun to watch your table journey. I might even get inspired.

  2. oh what fun to build your own table! i could have/should have/would have built my own workbench for the girl cave… but then hubby found the super cheap, already built, fold-able one at home depot and i buckled.
