Reclaimed Wood Bench...My First DIY Piece

Submitted by Stacey G on Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:11

This was my first attempt to use real power tools and make furniture. After being inspired by Ana, I purchased my Kreg Jig and got to work! I needed a coffee table so I tweaked this one to fit my needs. I ended up staining it with Minwax Gray, but it wasn't rich enough for me. So I took white, black and brown pain and dry brushed it to give it that old barn wood look.....OMG I LOVE IT! It came out perfect. So much better than in the photos even! Thank you for the inspiration Ana.....What will I make next???? Hmm......
