DIY The Perfect Table

After failed attempts at searching stores and online shops for the perfect long and skinny table, I finally gave in and set forth on a DIY project (mission). I’ve always loved the look of long formal banquet tables and the rustic appearance of classic country farmhouse tables, but at the same time wanted something modern.
