Thanks for all the nice comments on the Herringbone Table I shared with you last week. I’d planned to post the tutorial on Friday but, you know, life just gets in the way sometimes.
Today I wanted to give you a basic rundown on how you can get this look yourself. If you read last week’s post, you saw that I used two parsons-inspired end tables to make the new herringbone table.
Since you aren’t likely to have exactly these same tables, I wanted to show you how you might mimic this look using a very simple, very widely available, and very affordable table on the market: the Ikea Lack table, which comes in several different colors and rings in at a mere $9.99.
I used 1×3 pine boards for the top and my herringbone pattern had four rows, so I sketched out the center two rows first, right on the table, to be sure everything would be straight. I used a nailgun and small brad nails to attach each of the pieces to the tabletop underneath. After the two center sections were complete I cut the pieces for the edges one by one.
