This was my first real project where I did everything on my own, start to finish! No help from my husband. I needed a very small and narrow table for my entryway which is very small. This is the first thing you see when you open the front door. The top board is a 12" board, it fits perfectly in the space. I distressed it to give it a nice rustic look and it looks pretty authentic. The crate below is made of recycled pallet wood and will be used for shoes or umbrellas... I'm very happy with the way it turned out for being my first project (it's a tiny bit wobbly..the leg's aren't perfect, oh well!). And it only cost about $30 for the lumber (not including the stain, paint or finishing wax which I already had). Definitely beats trying to find something in the store!
