This would look amazing in any farmhouse or rustic décor. This is completely reclaimed pine. The table skirt is a 2X10 that came from a 100+ year old house that had fallen. The rough edges are from water damage. They were interesting so I decided to keep them and highlight that. The top came from a barn find 2X12. I halved it, and ripped one of the halves because the worn edges were very unique. The wood on the top (I was told) had been there since the 1940s. The legs are 6 X 6 structural pylons that have been planed down to smooth them out a bit, but are still full of vertical splits which add character to the table. Ebonized using the vinegar and steel wool solution finished with two coats of reduced coffee. It is finished with four coats of a spray on interior satin polyurethane.
