The DIY Zinc Top Table is the first piece of furniture that we have ever built. I have seen a smaller farmhouse table with a zinc top at my favorite high-end furniture store. The table is priced at $2500. We are building the table base with pine boards and we are adding gorgeous chunky farmhouse legs to the table. As a result, it makes the DIY zinc top table look very expensive.

My husband and I are in a small group class at our church that was called “Sawdust”. The class is held in our church’s workshop and the instructor wants everyone to work on a project. He will help us. We both thought about it and my husband said he wants to build a table and I know what I want the table to look like. Most importantly, this will not be a cheap project. Our DIY table will stay in our family for years. They all think I am crazy when I say that I want the farmhouse tabletop to be covered in zinc.
The DIY Table
Our instructor advises us on how he thinks the base should be put together. We purchase pine boards for the base. Two large plywood boards are glued on top of each other for the tabletop. We know that the boards will be covered. These stunning chunky table legs from Tablelegs.com are our favorite. The legs are called extra-large fluted English tavern legs. Side note: All the chairs are thrifted.
We did find our zinc at Rotometals.com and I am so pleased with how beautiful the zinc looks. It looks even better than I pictured it in my head. You need to read the post if you are planning on doing this. I have some suggestions that will make it easier.
My husband and I have so much fun working on this table but we had some challenges too. You can read about it in the post. In conclusion, this project gave us the confidence to take on other DIY furniture projects.
