Double Pedestal Farmhouse Dining Table

I based this build on the Triple Pedestal Farmhouse Table found on this site.  I fell in love with the table and I just had to build one!

This table is only 72" long, so I ended up removing the third pedestal.  I also removed the decorative apron that is pictured in the original plan.  I also added a picture frame border using 2x4's with 45 degree angles on the corners. I think I like how this look turned out! I kept the legs the same size as the original plan called for.

This entire build took me about a day and the staining process another 2-3 days. I stained the table top using Varathane's American Walnut stain and I painted the base using an off-white milk paint. But before painting the base, I stained the corners with the same American Walnut stain so that when I was ready to add the distressed look, I could simply just sand the paint until the stain appeared through the white.
