Project (URL):

Time to Complete: 30 – 40 hours

Total Cost: $240

Finishing Details:
Classic farmhouse table top with breadboards combined with a more detailed base that allows for squeezing more family and friends around the table! We were going for inexpensive and somewhat distressed so we used knotty pine – stained the top with Minwax Special Walnut and finished with Minwax Satin Polyurethane. Base is stained with a dark walnut and then painted with a semi-gloss white that we then distressed for the look we wanted.
