My wife saw a table at the very expensive Pottery Barn store. So I told her I would make something similiar. Materials are nothing speacial just pine from Lowes. I used gate hinges on the corners and 3/4” all thread for the bar going down the center on the bottom. I used a glaze clear coat for the top. The table at PB was $1300, I spent $350.

One of my favorite things to do, recreate things that the Mrs see’s in a catalog or store that she would like, for way below the price, and I have a good time!

Very nice job. No one should spend that much at Pottery Barn, not ever.

Beautiful! And the finish turned out great. Any way you could describe a bit about the process? How you distressed it and what you did for stain? Thanks!

Great looking table. I’m sure your wife loves it more than anything you could buy.

@Barefoot – I just found the pine boards with the most character on them. The legs I just beet with a hammer and threw screws and nails at. As for the stain its was just Minwax Early American. One coat and I wiped it probably 5 mins after applying it.

looks great! So, you saved your wife $950; does this mean that you get to spend $950 on tools???
