I love this project. This was my first project and they turned out great. I made the end tables smaller by 1 ,2x6 as I found the plan to be too big for my space. I used the apple cider vinegar instead I the white to mix with the steel wool and then added streaks of black stain to get the darker affect. I tested for 2 weeks the vinegars and got a more grayish tone with the apple cider. I also changed the bottom to 1x6 and 1x4 instead of the sheets . I found them easier to work with.
