Once home and unloaded, I left him to work. The sound of YouTube "how to" videos played from his work space, and a few hours later I came out to find the beginnings of our soon-to-be table. The wood looked nothing like it did earlier that morning. It was starting to look like a unique piece of art. I have to admit...I was impressed...he was really doing it!
After building the top, and a lot of sanding, the wood grain was looking awesome and the finish was smooth. Chris decided to add legs made from redwood and a unique "I" design connecting the four legs together down the middle, and for a more classic rustic look, we went with an "English Chestnut" stain.
Two coats of stain, three coats of polyurethane and some sanding in between. The table was moved into our dining room and the direct sunlight made it a perfect fit.
Of course I had to add my finishing touches to the table, so I decided to take on the legs. I turned to my favorite Annie Sloan Country Grey Chalk Paint and with a little distressing and dark wax, I think the legs turned out looking amazing.
At the end of the day, we got exactly what we were looking for and for a fraction of the price!
This was the first major wood project my husband took on. This one project has turned into him producing multiple tables a month for amazing families just like us, looking to make their house a home!
