Alex's Art Table & Chairs

Submitted by skane724 on Thu, 07/05/2012 - 21:28

I've never thought that I could build any piece of furniture.. then I found a blog called Shanty-2-Chic and it was two sisters who built any piece of furniture you could think of from Ana White's project plans. So this is my first brag and I'm soo thrilled at how they turned out. Of course it didn't run smoothly the entire time.. I had some bumps along the way (that meaning I had to rebuild a chair like twice to get it right). I really don't know much about different type of work tools and all the different size wood and nails... but I did it and I can't wait for my next project!!

I didn't list the time it took because I did a little here and there.. it took me a month or so to complete! I also didn't have a lot of the tools, so price would include cost of wood and tools. I also would like to mention I used the Kreg Jig to build and I love it and would totally recommend it!

Built from Plan(s)
Type of Wood
White Wood (Table Top) Furring Wood (The rest of the table and chairs)
Finish Used
I stained the top with dark walnut and layered it with a polyacyrlic gloss. The rest is a Rusteloum Painter's Touch White Paint. I still would like to get a sealer for the rest of the table.
