I absolutely love this table and couldn't believe how easy it was to build. It was a weekend project and gets so many compliments.
For the finish, I mixed steel wool with vinegar and brushed it on. The table really darkened up nicely and made the distress marks in the wood come out. I then applied walnut stain and followed up with 3 coats of poly.
In my post I have pictures of the finishing process and a video showing how to distress wood and apply the vinegar solution.
If you are looking for an affordable table that looks great, I'd highly recommend building Ana's table.
