Balust Farmhouse Table

My wife asked me to build her a farmhouse table. This was my first intermediate project. The design was inspired by Shanty-2-Chic’s DIY Pottery Barn Dining Table:

We modified their plan and incorporated hand turned balusts from a craftsman on Etsy. We achieved the color using two stains, Minwax Provencial topped with Minwax Classic Gray. It was then finished with one coat of Minwax Satin Poly, and several coats of Johnson Paste Wax.

What a fun project! We are very pleased with our new table, and are proud to say we built it.
