I built this table as an entry table for barn weddings. I tried to give the illusion of it being very old. I used worn cypress floor boards for the top, cypress base board for the skirts and the legs were joists from an old home, also cypress. The whole table was scrubbed with a mixture of sawdust, red chalk, blue chalk, and ashes from a fire. The the top was shellaced and waxed. The skirts and legs were painted a blueish gray color, then the paint stripped off and waxed several times.
