    thank you for this!! I have similar table I've been dying to make-over, and I never thought of gluing new boards on top – brilliant idea! going to see if my husband can be convinced to take on the cutting for me 😉

      Yes, that would be the thing to do!

    Found this post a week ago and inspired me to do the same! I have my planks cut to size, sanded and ready to glue down on the existing table top, only i worry its too heavy. How has your table held hp? Did you need to reinforce anything?

      This table has held up great! Have you used the 1″ planks? Also– are your table legs at least as large as the ones on this one? If so, the table should be fine. If you have more questions, feel free to email & send pics! Good luck!

    What type of wood are the planks? I made a similar style table but my stain turned out blotchy – considering re-sanding and starting over. Did you use a pre-conidtioner?

      The wood is 1″ pine. No conditioner. Just make sure you wipe the stain on smooth and wipe off any residue! Hope that helps you!

    Love your table! Have any of the boards split or have the seams separated at all? Wanting to do this to my table as well but have read wood wants to expand and contract with weather changes and it’s best not to glue tho I prefer to glue down so it’s more solid.

      Sorry for the delay in response to this. Somehow this must’ve slipped through without me seeing! There have been no changes in the table the way it was done here. So glad you like it.

    So in the picture it almost looks like the chairs are black but in the photo from the project they look way lighter. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for sharing this!

      I think you are referring to the primed chairs. The grayish look is the paint primer and the darker version is the finished painted chair.

    Hi! It looks stunning! We have an almost identical dining room table that I am about to do this to. Did he remove the existing table top or just put the planks over it?
