About This Project

I love this little table!
I made 3 at the time. One for me, one for my sister, and one for my mom.
I had a little trouble with it not being level when I finished. I just sanded the bottoms of the legs until they all cooperated.

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I painted it a red that I had, which was a little brighter than I wanted. I sanded the edges a bit and gave it a nick or two here and there. I then put Minwax Jacobean stain over the paint and wiped it off quickly. It's final coat is Minwax polycrylic.


I built one for the kitchen and it is great. Then the 10 year old girl from across the street wanted to build one. Finished it Saturday night and she did a great job even counter-sinking screws (adult supervision). Now my grandson (also 10) will finish his step-stool tomorrow. The project is easy, but not so easy. But fun and quick. Painting or staining takes the longest time.
