Homeschool Room

Found the plans in Ana White's book and her site and decided to give it a try. We were turning our office into our homeschool room and need space for all the kids (4) to sit while doing their school work. Instead of individual desk I decided to build a farmhouse table. I also decided to build a cubby bookshelf for storage. The project turned out great. Many people have complimented me on it and my wife is a satisfied customer. This was my first time doing a two tone finish ( painted the table base with a stain on the table top). I would say it was a valuable lesson learning how to properly stain and apply top the top coat. Overall I'm super excited about this project and using the same techniques on future builds.
