We designed this simple Rustic Modern Dining table that you can build with only 12 2x6x8 boards – that’s about $50 in lumber!

Then, you can follow along with the step-by-step below!This right here is all the lumber you need! 12 – 2x6x8 boards!We used our Ridgid Table Saw to rip the round edges off and made each board 5″ in width. This is not a necessary step but it will create a very smooth table top with no ridges. If you don’t rip them, make the base about 4″ wider.Then, we made our cuts!Here are the legs.The table runnersand the supports and the leg runners.After all of our cuts had been made, we used our Kreg Jig K5 to drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes into the boards.(Refer to our printable plans for the pocket hole placement). You can see that we have our Kreg Jig set to drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes. You can find the Kreg Jig that we use HERE on Amazon and you can watch our How to use a Kreg Jig video HERE.We started by assembling both legs. We used wood glue and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.The leg runners will attach to the legs and be flush with the edges of the legs. Make sure that your pocket holes face out so that you won’t see them once the table is done.Now, you should have two legs that look like boxes

I wanted the perfect mix of rustic, style, and function and this table checked all those boxes. The Balustrade Dining Table has the perfect baluster posts for that rustic charm; this was a main feature I was looking for. Most importantly they were large posts that suited the rest of the table. So many other tables have a similar look but the posts can be small and not proportioned with the rest of the table.

A dining room isn’t complete without a table, and I have an amazing one to share with you today! Since completing my Dining Room Reveal, I’ve been finding myself constantly visiting the new room and admiring all the hard work. It’s pretty crazy to think a couple weeks ago this room was empty.

The distressed finish is AMAZING! The table is constructed from reclaimed wood, so each piece is unique. Plus, the color is exactly what I was looking for with its natural and grey look.

I love dressing up tables, but this table needs no help. The thick planked tabletop has a door like pattern and is beautiful on it’s own. I keep going back and forth with my decor, since I love admiring the tabletop.

While the spray paint was drying, we assembled the table top. Attach all of the planks with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Then, measure and cut the breadboards to fit the planked top perfectly.
