Rustic X end table

This project was similar to the Rustic X Console.  Recommend building the lower shelf halves before installing so that it's easier to make the bottom flush.  The X's were somewhat tricky....just take your time.  It's easier to cut the piece too big and trim than to add wood to a piece too short.  I stained the top with miniwax special walnut and used a satin poly.  For the bottom, I used the same stain and then painted over it with rustoleum heirloom white.  I lightly distressed it with 150 grit sandpaper so some of the stain would show through.  All in all I am very happy with it!
