When I complete a project, I always have a sense of satisfaction. ?Sometimes I’;m happier with the outcome than others. ?And, I’;ve had my share of DIY disasters over the years –; most of which you won’;t find here! ?Today was one of those days that I was giddy with happiness when I put the final brush stroke of paint on this DIY farmhouse tabletop that Mark built and I finished.

I’;ve had the “;idea”; of building a farmhouse tabletop to attach to the base of our table, but I sometimes have a hard time explaining my “;ideas”; to my husband –; the builder! ?There are times I have an idea and I go on and on telling him all about itdecorative pillow covers, and he just stares at me blankly! ?That’;s where visual aids come in handy. ?So, here’;s the visual aid I showed Mark to explain my vision.

The photo above is the Baroque Parquet rectangular table from Restoration Hardware (no longer available). ?It’;s a very grand table and would never fit in my house, but it’;s the look of that style tabletop on our trestle table base that I was going for.

For the table top, we used four 1″; x 12″; pine boards cut to 6 feet long and a 1″; x 6″; board cut to size running horizontally at each end to create the 7 ft. long table top. ?Then Mark made a skirt using 1″; x 3″; pine boards. ?The entire table was put together with pocket holes and screws using a Kreg Jig and it’;s solid. ?The finished skirt fits snuggly over the existing trestle base.

Once Mark had the table top assembled, I sanded the entire piece to make sure there were no rough edges. ?Then I used a mixture of Rustoleum Weathered Gray and Minwax Dark Walnut stains for the table top. ?Once the stain had cured, I applied two coats of Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane. ?I gave?the table base a fresh coat of white paint –; Maison Blanche Magnolia. So, what do you think of our new farmhouse tabletop?

If you are looking for good tutorials and plans for building your own farmhouse table or table top, there are a few sources that I can?recommend: ?Ana White and Shanty 2 Chic. ?These amazing ladies really know their way around a workshop and have building plans that are easy to follow.

While you actively turn your living space into a first-class, holiday extravaganza, don't forget the kids. Creating the spirit of Christmas, Santa Claus, or just a good feeling, in your child's bedroom, will give them the right attitude of the season. It only takes a few cheery touches of Christmas to leave a lasting memory for years to come.

I love to sew simple summer skirts. They are so easy to sew that you don’t even need a sewing pattern! ?Just take a few measurements and you’re ready to go.

Yum, buttons. I do love buttons. Boxes full of them, to run through my fingers. Especially pretty ones, to replace boring ones on clothing, turn into jewellery, decorate accessories with, or just look at! However, sometimes, you just can't find the button you want - thats where these come in!The ones I'm making need the use of a laser cutter or other CNC equipment, but towards the end (step 4), I'll explain a couple of ways to do this by hand too.You'll need:access to CAD softwareaccess to a laser cutter3mm thick acrylicposter paintspaint brushtissue/ragideas?On the last page of this instructable, there are some curriculum links - I've done this with my students, maybe you'll find somewhere to include it in a project with yours too.
