I need help with finishing a dining room table, here is a summary of the project.
•I have built a dining room trestle table out of #2 yellow pine (approximately 109” x 40”)
•My wife wants to mimic the finish on a table at Restoration Hardware (name: 17th C. Monastery Rectangular Dining Table) (Grey Acacia finish)
•Here is the link to the table: http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod150011&categoryId=cat2140112
•I planned on finishing the table myself but have been unable to replicate the Grey Acacia finish on the reference table
•I have a medium skill level in furniture refinishing
•I have tried variations of water based stains. General Finishes walnut, Minwax white wash, and Minwax charcoal grey without success
Cann ya’ll help me to define the steps to replicate the finish?
