As we packed up the moving van to move to Texas from Florida, we quickly realized that adding several kids and all the things that come with a larger family, we would not be able to bring it all with us. So we left behind our butcher block dining table for 6 and set out to build a table that would fit our family as well as guests who wanted to share a meal with us. Like so many before us, we used the Fancy X farmhouse table plans from Shanty2Chic. We needed to do it in a hurry since now being centrally located in the contiguous United States, we would be hosting family Christmas. Stay tuned for a play by play on our build.
