My family and I built this table off of shanty2chics pottery barn inspired table. We did modify it to make it a bit shorter. The plans called for a 7 foot table but that wasn’t going to fit in an apartment so we modified the plans so that we ended up with a 6ft table.We stained it using a stain called Early American and we then sealed it with a couple coats of floor sealer because that’s what we already had. I love it and it is exactly what I was wanting. I also love to show it off when company comes over. It was one of many shanty projects I’ve made but by far my favorite. It took about two weekends to build.
