Believe it or not we’ve had a dining room table that we wanted to replace for years now but just never got around to it. That is until now. Jamie found a Monastery Table that she really liked so I took that inspiration and added my own twist on it. As always, I’ve included the free DIY plans for you all to make your very own! Enjoy!

How to build a Monastery Dining Table
Please disregard the stupid iPhone filter that accidentally got turned on and cannot be seen in the sun. 🙁
My wife, Jamie, decided to finish the base of this table with Carrington wood stain from Rustoleum and paint the table top with the new Serenity Blue Chalked paint from Rustoleum. After distressing the top she then applied a finishing wax to seal.
