I love how this table turned out. The plans were simple and easy to follow. I chose to distress the table to give it some character i found a great video on youtube for different distressing techniques here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Iotye7dvAQ For the finish i used the tea and vingegar method then to make it darker i rubbed on a little oil based stain and finished it with polyurethane.

Do u think you gave to do both tea and vinegar or would tea alone suffice?

It is probobly best to use both the tea and the vinegar because when they are both used together on the wood they create some kind of reaction giving you the color that you want. It is also a good idea to experiment on some scrap wood first to get the color right. Im not sure if you have read this article or not but it gives the full step by step on this kind of finish I hope this helps. http://thefriendlyhome.blogspot.ca/2012/07/how-to-oxidize-wood.html

I plan on making this table within the next couple of weeks and I hope mine turns out half as good as yours! You did an absolutely brilliant job!
