After finishing my mirrors in the dining room, my table started to look naked! So… I dressed her up today.
This is a super easy project and I LOVE the results!
This is the wood I used for the project…
2 – 1x6x4 whitewood boards
1- 2×4 stud
Total for wood was under $10… Yippee!
I also used Gorilla Wood glue to attach it all together.
I cut my 2×4 the same length as my other 2 boards (4ft)
I used wood glue and nails to attach the 1×6’s to the 2×4 like this…
Then I cut 2 small pieces of from my stud to finish off the sides. Mine were 3.75″ each. I know it looks shanty… But that was my goal here 😉
I made some dings all around the whole box, and I also used some furniture upholstery nails around the whole thing because I like the way they look. You can find these at Lowe’s by the screws and nails.
I decided to try a new product out to finish my box. I found this stain at Lowe’s.
I LOVED it. I was thinking there wouldn’t be much of a difference in this new stain and the one I was previously using, but I was shocked at the difference.
The Rust-Oleum stain dries in no time. I actually had the box on my table dry an hour after I stained it… Love that.
It’s also much less stinky and sticky than the others I have used. You will love it!
Once it dried I was all finished. I used some glass bottles I found HERE and filled them with some little flowers I found at Hobby Lobby. You can also use old glass coke bottles, Starbuck’s glass bottles or any old glass sauce bottle.
I used the 12 ounce sauce bottles from their site (SAU12)
Here is how it turned out…
What do you think??
