Finished table looks great — close to those big heavy farm tables they have at Pottery Barn, etc. One thing, though — you’ve added I think over 2″ in height to the original IKEA table. Did you cut the legs by 2″ to even it out? IMO tall dining tables are very uncomfortable (I like heights of 28-1/2″-29″ and I’m almost 6′ in height). Most IKEA tables are in that range, but most store bought tables are 30″ which are noticeably too high (makes you feel like the table is intruding vertically into your eating space, plus blocking out more of the people you may be sitting with). There’s plenty of leg room in an average size chair for a 28″ table, so that shouldn’t be a concern. Thanks for sharing those ideas.

This is not IKEA’s first foray into solid wood furniture. The company has always offered a few solid wood items, but in the past year, customer demand has compelled IKEA to double down on sturdier solid wood designs. It’s even been buying up forests all over the world in order to supply the right lumber. Then, back in January, IKEA released the Nornäs collection, a gorgeous Scandinavian-inspired series of pieces made of solid pine. The untreated wood can be painted or stained, so it can be customized to your heart’s content.

Ikea Hack: Build a Farmhouse Table (the easy way!)   This project is not new to East Coast Creative Blog, actually it is one of our most popular posts of all time and it came way back when we first started the blog.  Since now we have much prettier pictures, I’m going to give you all the steps and details here, but if you want to see the original Farmhouse Table that resides in my dining room, well check out the post here.  It has a bit more of a modern flair than the traditional, rustic farmhouse style we did for this episode of “Knock It Off”. I’ll walk you through each step of the project, but since this is our most popular DIY project-I’ve created a printable materials checklist.  It has all the wood measurements, tools, my stain recommendations etc, so you can print it out and take it to the hardware store.  I like things Easy Peasy! Use the button below to download your checklist.    Printable Project Materials Checklist

Step 7: This is an important step- you need to create an apron to hide the subframe and give the table a finished look.  Measure and cut four 1×3 pieces of pine down to the size of each of the table’s sides.  Attach the apron onto each side, under the wide top planks, hiding the frame.  This step might sound confusing, but if you think of it as hiding the evidence of your IKEA hack, then you’ll be golden!

Step 3: Build a subframe using 1×2 inexpensive pine planks.  So… cheap tables are cheap for a reason, they’re not made super well and they’re tiny.  When I think of a farmhouse table, I don’t think dainty and small, I think big and strong.  So, this subframe is going to be your support so that you can make your table wider.  The width is up to you, you will attach the 1x2s directly onto the table and they’ll hang over the sides.  You’ll want them equal on both sides, but really the width is up to you.  The table at my house is crazy wide, but the one we made for this farmhouse dining room was about 48″ when it was finished.  Attach each 1×2 with screws directly into the table.  We used about 3 screws per board.

“We use both the sapwood and the core of the acacia,” IKEA explained in its release. “The mix of darker and lighter wood becomes part of the design, giving character to the different pieces. This offers a unique look and whilst optimizing the use of the material.”

Aprons and braces, necessary though they may be, require more raw material, are extra things for a manufacturer to ship and extra things for a consumer to assemble, not to mention pay for. So Ikea has done away with both aprons and braces with their Lisabo line.

Seems the editor isn’t aware that canting the legs is indeed integral to the design. The joint that they came up with is great for the flat pack design and simple assembly, but by angling the legs they are able to get rid of both the apron and the braces, because this does it by putting the legs in constant tension. Now if you go to IKea , you’ll see that the legs still rack/ wobble – but far less.

I have been searching for a farmhouse table for YEARS. Went to those fancy furniture stores that will remain unnamed, and they wanted at least $4,000 for the table alone!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have never done anything like this before but I will make this my project over the next few months. Here’s hoping I get my dream table!
