I love this table! Thank you Ana for the plans! Everyone who sees it says it came out incredible. I used my birthday money to buy the Kreg Jig for this piece and I'm glad I did! I'm excited to continue building. This was my first real build and it was fun! I painted it with a mixture of Barcelona and Graphite Chalk paint to make the brown and then I used that brown mixture to paint it as well as Graphite so it has two tones of colors. Chalk paint from Annie Sloan. I then clear waxed for protection and finished with dark wax.

Finish Used
Chalk paint and wax by Annie Sloan. I used Barcelona Orange mixed 50/50 with Graphite to get the brown. I then painted with that brown mixture and Graphite. I clear waxed with Annie Sloan clear wax for protection and finished with her dark wax. I rubbed the dark wax in the grooves and knots so they would stand out.
