Gaby Buffet Table

Submitted by zjlawlor on Sat, 09/20/2014 - 10:39

I built this buffet table for our dining room using the Gaby Kitchen Island plans. I used some reclaimed boards I salvaged from a trash pile at work for the top and side aprons. I also used old pallet wood for the bottom shelf boards. This gave it the cool, rustic look I was going for and really helped set it apart. Really fun project. 

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Less than 50$ (wood, screws, stain, etc) - I was able to use salvaged wood for much of it and had the tools.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Started with light coat of primer, immediately wiping away excess. Dark stain is kona (2 coats) and the top and sides are stained weathered gray (1 coat). We wanted more of the white to show through the grey, and the nature of the reclaimed boards helped with this.
