About This Project


I loved the look of the Planked Wood Sideboard, but it was waaay too big for my small dining room. I scaled the piece down, so it was proportionate to my room. I finished it dark knobs and a dark "IKEA" like finish. No one believes I built this from 2x4s and 2x6s!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used: 
I first applied a solution of apple cider vinegar and steel wool to give the pine an aged look. I followed that with a coat of Minwax English Chestnut, then a coat of Red Elm Minwax Gel Stain. It's topped with several applications of a solution (1/3 Boiled Linseed Oil, 1/3 thinner and 1/3 varnish) to give it a hand rubbed look.


Very beautiful work. I will bookmark this for the finish instructions.

I hope I get around to producing something as lovely to furnish my own home.
