A New Kitchen Table

  Hey my friends! Mr. Buckets has been at it again…he built another table 🙂 My brother gave us a huge stack of gorgeous reclaimed wood from old crates. We’ve had several projects in the making from this old wood. One being, our new kitchen table: coffee corner background Here is the way it used to look, with the old painted table top: DSC_0764 After removing the old table top, Mr. Buckets replaced it with wide planks.  He used the same legs, and just rebuilt the top and base. Here it is with a coat of weathered wood stain from Home Depot. gray stain And this is it after staining, adding white wash, and sanding it down. We also added 2 coats of Poly on the top for easy cleaning. legs  It goes much better with our farmhouse style, don’t you think? flowers with zinc pots   kitchen plank table with chairs  We are really enjoying the new table. plank table with flowers Add some flowers and zinc pots for a little centerpiece… table with pots And on to the next project 🙂 zinc pots 2 I’ll be sharing more real soon.
