I managed to score some reclaimed wood when my neighbours tore down their deck. I don't know that I would ever try to build any more indoor furniture from reclaimed wood because it was tough! Much of the wood was warped. I worked on this table for weeks and I was not very happy with it. I was whining on the Knock-Off Wood page on Facebook and Ana encouraged me to finish it. I still think I might build another dining table this summer but I learned a lot from building this table.

I made my own stain by mixing some left over paints with water. I love how the stain on the top of the table turned out! I poly'd over the top. 3 coats I think.
