Submitted by jhavinga on Sat, 09/27/2014 - 15:31

Loved this coffee table ever since I saw it at Restoration Hardware. Thank you Ana & Jen.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Legs are $30 each. Shipping is $60 (To Sumas, Washington).
Wood was from an old Church.. But my guess would be $100 for HD Wood.
Total of $300 including screws, glue, stain, etc.
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Finish Used
A variety. Because it was all reclaimed, some wood I didnt even stain. just sanded and it came out the exact color I wanted. To blend it all together however, I used Minwax Weathered Oak & Special Walnut.

I love how your table turned out! Fabulous job! Did you use the knotty pine legs? I also love your couch! Do you mind sharing where you purchased it?

Sorry for the delayed reply.

For the legs I did use the Knotty Pine. Cheapest and still look great.

As for our couch set, we had them custom made from a local Furniture store called Canadian Furniture Manufacturing. If your ever in the lower mainland of BC, Canada, be sure to stop by there!

Since this was reclaimed/barn wood how did you prep the wood for the table ? Plane or Sand etc, and when prepped what finish did you use ?

A BUTT load of sanding.. no planeing necessary. I used a mix of weathered oak and special walnut stains to balance out all the mixmatched wood as 1 colour. For example the cedar planks for the bottom shelf i didnt stain at all, while the legs are pine and had to make them gray/brown to match the cedar planks.
