DIY Hexagonal Dining Table

DIY Hexagonal Table

A little while ago, I shared some dining table DIY ideas! For months we thought about what would fit our little area the best, while still seating our family comfortably. We talked about different table solutions: circle, square or rectangle. In the end, we decided that we wanted something a little less traditional, a lot more fun and way more modern! We agreed that a hexagonal dining table would be just right!

There aren’t a whole lot of hexagonal tables out there. There are a few, but we really wanted to incorporate hair pin legs into our design and maybe even spray paint them a gold or copper to match our sputnik chandelier! We love the idea of combining metal and wood, so it was at the top of the list. I have to be honest, when we first started putting it all together it was a bit of a nightmare. You have to have it just right, otherwise the table can wobble or tip easily. In the end, it all worked out perfectly!

I love how it leaves us a lot of space in the dining area, but also a lot of table top space as well! It can fit six people perfectly, but leaves just enough room to add a couple more. I love the simple plywood top! It’s perfect since we are going for a more Scandinavian look over all: bright, white and fresh!

Be sure to come back later this week to check out the how-to! I didn’t want to overwhelm this post with too many pictures, because there are a lot! I decided to just show you our finished product and get to the more serious stuff later! Perhaps it will motivate you to make one yourself!

What do you think about this kind of dining table? I’d love to hear what you think!

  • I LOVE metal/wood combos also! this is pretty sweet, as usual :)

    • HelloLidy

      Aw, thank you :) That is very kind of you to say – we needed a new one badly! We have such a small dining room, so we were kind of forced to make our own!

      XOXO

  • Oh my goodness, this is incredible Lidy! I secretly want you guys to start a furniture/home decor business and take over my apartment :)

    • HelloLidy

      Aw, thanks so much Rachel! I’m not going to lie – we would love that very much 😉 This would be our dream job, but who knows where to begin!

      XOXO

      • It does seem a bit overwhelming, but it’s totally possible! I’m in the midst of researching small business loans and spaces here in SF. Happy to share what I learn if you guys are really considering!

        • HelloLidy

          That would be amazing! Thanks my dear!! How exiting for you too!!

  • PersiaLou

    I’m crazy about this. NEED one now.

    • HelloLidy

      I’ll be sure to share the how-to soon! You might be able to make your own!!

      XOXO

    I remenber your post about the table dilemma. I totally saw one in my salvation thrift store and thought of you. Glad you solved it though. Its great.

    • HelloLidy

      Aw, no way! Thanks, that is so sweet of you to think of me :) I am very happy to finally have a table that actually fits in our little house!

      XOXO

    We had a octagonal table in our kitchen, growing up! One side of it was fixed to the side of the counter, so it only had one leg, leaving plenty of (human) leg room. We loved it!
    Yours turned out beautifully. I really like how light it looks without looking flimsy. What a great diy!

    • HelloLidy

      That’s awesome Tania – sounds like a great table! I’m so glad you like our version – it’s lightweight for sure, which I love. We originally wanted three legs, but quickly realized the stability would be compromised! In the end, we are happy with it :) Thanks so much for your kind words!

  • I love it! The hexagonal shape is like a practical circle. I am also digging your dining chairs! It all looks lovely.

    • HelloLidy

      Yes, exactly! We love a round table, but wanted to modernize it a bit! I love our chairs, but I have to be honest, they were part of the reason why we decided to build our own table. We couldn’t push our chairs in, which was a huge pain since our dining area is so small. Now I’m happy with them though! Thanks again!

    Did you ever do a how to? I can’t seem to find it on the blog?

  • Corinna Henderson

    Through a series of events, none of which I expected to bring me here, I’m here! A few months back I remember asking hubby what he thought of DIYing a hexagon table top. He was pretty apathetic over the idea and I had other things I was working on anyways, but look at your table! It rocks!

  • Pink

    Is there a diy tutorial?

  • adriana

    did you ever post a how to ? would love to know !

  • Kristin Jamie

    I know this is an old post but I’m contemplating making something similar this summer with some walnut planks.. would love it if you posted the DIY how-to as I’m sure others would!

  • Candra Storm Malone

    So I might have missed it but I didn’t find a link to the How-To for the table. Did it ever get posted?
