Well my sister in-law is getting married and my wife thought it would be nice to give them a wedding present, soooooooooooooo. this is the one that was decided on.
for the materials I used Pine just like the Woodsmith magazine did. The Dover bun feet are from Tablelegscom.
Now for the stain I mixed up 3/4 golden oak and 1/4 golden pecan since that is the color that my sister in-law and her soon to be hubby like. I finished it with satin gloss lacquer but since I do not have a spray gun I ended up using Deft Aerosol Spray to apply it. It was a learning experience for me. I think i will break down and buy a spray gun here soon. ( It might save me some money )
I did not antique it by adding a glaze but i did intentionally left defects (and added my own) to give it some character.
Over all I am quite pleased with it.
Now on to my next projects
Thanks for looking
