Used the design and got really ugly knotty and grainy wood to give it more character, as well as distressed it with a hammer and a 2' chain and hand planned/sanded. Stained Aqua Blue and sanded parts back to bare wood, then restrained with heavy spots and light spots of Wheatherd Gray and did 3 coats of Satin polyurethane.
my project cost was probably about $165-185 at end.
