I bought an old, pine, “well used” table top at an estate sale for $5 and then found a cheap table on craigslist which ended up being $40. I removed the top from that table and put the pine top on it. I distressed the white paint on the legs and stained the top with a dark stain. Then I clear coated it all. The top got 5 coats of wipe on poly and the base got 3 coats of polycrylic.

I think it looks pretty awesome and now I just need to find a home for it.

I was just at someones residence the other evening. Their dining room table was made out of an old oak school teachers desk. Very nicely done, thanks for sharing
