If you build it, they will come (over for dinner)

A few months back I posted about our temporary dining table that I painted over in ASCP.

Well, the temporary table is still here as we haven't found a dining table we liked or were willing to shell out the bucks for. So, we've been tossing around the idea of building our own.

Although Chris has become quite the craftsman, he isn't able to sculpt table legs yet that aren't your basic rectangular ones. So, he found this website that sells legs in all different shapes and sizes.

Here are a few that we're considering...

Once we pick out the legs, building the top will be a piece of cake thanks to Ana White and her plans.

Also if we go with this DIY route, I definitely would like to splurge (a little) on some nice dining chairs. 
I've been obsessed with these Restoration Hardware ones...

...which happen to be on sale. A sign, perhaps??

We figure that if in the end, the table we make doesn't turn out the way we hoped, we could always sell it.
Let's start building!
