NEW HOUSE - NEW DINING TABLE

Everything is falling into place - just like it was made to be!  Today I'm sharing my latest project - a new dining table.  The base and apron are from a kit I ordered from tablelegs.com and the top was made from 5 pine planks.  You can save a lot of money by putting the top together yourself.
(Table top from tablelegs.com - $890   Your table top of pine - $30)

After heavily sanding each plank to soft edges, I dry-brushed on 
some turqouise  . . .

. . . and a little olive green in a very random, patchy manner.

After the paint was dry, walnut stain went over the whole table top.  Then paste wax.

The top is secured to some perpendicular 4" boards to prevent 
warping and keep them level with one another, then secured to the base with 
wood screws.  Last of all, the base was painted off-white and paste wax 
applied over all parts of the table for sheen and protection.


Now, for a dinner party!
