Our family needed a new outdoor table for dining on our outdoor deck so when 3M DIY asked me to partner with them to evaluate their new products, I knew the perfect project to build!

I’m so excited to let you know that this table is my own custom design …and I’m sharing the instructions on how it’s made with you today!

 I combined two popular RH table styles, the rectangular X-base Table and the Brickmaker’s Table, to come up with this distinctive innovative design: an X-base  bottom with an industrial bolted plank table top!

    wow, you two did an amazing job, very good work. This would be a great table in a big cabin in a dining room. Love that finish, would go beautifully in mountain cabin in MT. I love the grey wash look, so smooth. You should be very proud of the job you did. Enjoy it now for many outside meals with your family and friends. Happy summer days
    thx for how to’s also ,pinning this.

      Isn’t the price to make it incredible?? I’m glad you like the grey washed finish as much as I do!

    • heather says

      Thanks Amy – I’m glad you think it has an expensive look! I love creating things that look expensive but are easy on the wallet!

    • heather says

      I trialed several combinations of stain before I found this perfect blend of grey over the dark walnut stain – so glad you like it Shannah!

    Love, love , love this! What a beautiful job! I was thinking about a basic picnic table for my outside dining area, but you have changed my mind for sure!I hope I can do half as nice of a job as you did! I would love if you would stop by and share this at my new link party, Celebrate It! It is all about celebrating what we do every day!
    Hope to see you there!

    I absolutely love this table. We are going to start building soon but had a question… How exactly did you attach the top of the table to the legs?

    • heather says

      Hi Amelia – the instructions for that step are in the Ana White plans which I used and linked to in my post. Hope that helps! Have fun making one!
