This the first project my husband attempted. I hope I can be more involved in the next project. I'm very proud of his first table! We plan on putting it on the screened in porch of our new house we are getting ready to build.
I have a question. When you stained the top, how did you ensure that your paint was not affected by the stain? I am working on m y first project. I have it all together, painted the bottom, but am stumped by how to stain the top with out ruining all my hard work. Any advice would help.
So sorry I just saw your comment! We used a scrap piece of cardboard to put up against the table when "edging" the stain or paint. We could get in the corner alone the bottom where the stain and paint meet without having to have super steady hand or be completely stressed. Hope this helps!
