Updated Tryde Coffee Table

This was my first building project, and I'm very happy with the results.
It was a cinch to put together, too. My husband helped me cut the pieces after work one night and then I put it together that Saturday. I decided to do a two tone finish with the legs and apron painted because our local Lowes didn't have 2x4s and 4x4s in the same type of wood, so I was afraid there would be too big a difference in the way they take stain.

Estimated Cost
$60 including lumber, screws, paint and stain
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Fir and cedar
Finish Used
The legs and apron are spray painted with black Valspar gloss paint, and the top was stained with Minwax Kona stain. I did the painting and staining prior to attaching the top to the bottom and then gave it three coats of poly to help with durability.
