About This Project

Pine

We wanted a desk for our sons bedroom and I love the farmhouse table plans. My husband modified the plans to make the table much smaller. The desk was finished with a vinegar/steel wool mixture to oxidize the wood and then clear wax was applied.

Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
Aged/oxidized wood using vinegar and steel wool. Full tutorial can be found http://beingbrook.com/farmhouse-desk/
Estimated Cost: 
$30-$40 (we built this from scraps so it cost us $6 since we needed one extra board)

I love the look of the wood. Inspires me to make one myself!

I really love that finish. I want to make a toddler bed for my BFF's little guy, but was wary of using stain, etc. This finish looks gorgeous and seems very organic.
