Recently finished new kitchen table. 40” x 29”, 6 board Cherry top stained with General Finishes Black Cherry Water based stain. I have found that this color stain on Cherry wood gives a instant aged look. The table top also has 3 coats of Minwax poly. Bottom is pine with legs from Osborne Wood Products finished in Lamp Black Milk paint aslo from General with a top coat of Polyacrylic in a matte finish.

Very nice! I like the black, it makes the cherry look that much better.

Black and natural wood color are always great combinations and you show why. Very nice, I like it.
You mean you don’t make your own milk paint?

Thanks everyone. It was another fun project to build, but then I think all projects are fun, no matter what I am building. I first used General Finishes on another project and I am very satisfied with their products. In my older years now I think more of the world around me and like the idea of water based stains and paints and top coats. Even though I still use others such as Minwax poly, I am trying to eliminate them from my projects if possible. I think my connection with the farm has changed my thinking somewhat for the future of our planet and my lungs.

Where did you get the matching chairs from ?
