Large Rustic X Bench

Submitted by kcragun on Sun, 03/08/2015 - 15:23

I made this bench a little wider than the plan and made the legs more solid. I was shooting for a restoration hardware-type finish. It was fun to experiment. Used Dark Walnut stain, a white chalk paint "wash" (diluted chalk paint with water - about 50/50), sanded it back a little and added clear and dark wax. I still need to add wax to the legs, but had to share!
