X Coffee Table

This was the best piece I have made so far, I had some trouble getting the angles right with the x's but in the end it worked out great and everyone can't believe its just plain old wood! Keep up the great work!

Moving on to the end tables!

Finish Used
I had a great time "experimenting" with the distressed finish too. I recommend testing it on scrap boards first! I finished it with a coat of polyurethene and in the end the color looked fine but it did change it from what it was before the coat.

How did you stain it and distress it? Did you use the gray paint and water on top of the stain to give it that look?
