This is my 2nd built and it was a fun one. I built this table for a friend of mine and she wanted a different look to the table. She picked Patina Green and Snow White paint for the base and legs. First I applied the white paint, let it dry and then applied a very small amount of the patina green and dry brushed it in. After it dried I used my sander to blend it in and have some of the wood grain to show. On the table top, I applied the stain and let it dry over night and then sanded down (lightly) so the grain would pop. She loved the different colors and look of the table. She had the perfect chairs to match the rustic look. Excellent project!
