Farmhouse desk

Submitted by beingbrook on Wed, 10/26/2011 - 20:21

We wanted a desk for our sons bedroom and I love the farmhouse table plans. My husband modified the plans to make the table much smaller. The desk was finished with a vinegar/steel wool mixture to oxidize the wood and then clear wax was applied.

Estimated Cost
$30-$40 (we built this from scraps so it cost us $6 since we needed one extra board)
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
Aged/oxidized wood using vinegar and steel wool. Full tutorial can be found http://beingbrook.com/farmhouse-desk/
Recommended Skill Level
Intermediate

I love the look of the wood. Inspires me to make one myself!

I really love that finish. I want to make a toddler bed for my BFF's little guy, but was wary of using stain, etc. This finish looks gorgeous and seems very organic.

This table is beautiful! I'd love to modify this plan to be the size that you've built. I'm a novice and would love if you'd be willing/able to share the dimensions that you used.
