Cake table for wedding.

Submitted by sherrik on Wed, 05/06/2020 - 21:23

I had seen this and contemplated making it several times. When my daughter got engaged and we planned an on farm wedding, I knew this would be the perfect cake table. My niece helped me with the build. The stain and milk paint finish on the legs worked perfectly and crackled and chipped as desired. Only thing I didn’t like was the the silicone to fill the cracks didn’t last well. Boards were picked out of the pile at Menards. It still looks great two years later and my daughter bought a bigger house so she now has room for it in her dining area.
