Thank you! It was our first attempt at a glaze. We shortened the table length wise and then used 3 2x10s instead of 4. For the finish we painted the table Navajo White Behr color from home depot. We then mixed about 1 part of a Minwax espresso stain with 4 parts of Behr Faux Glaze. Then we just rubbed it on with rags and waited a little bit and rubbed it off.

Great job! Beautiful finish. I have yet to build anything, but this is my favorite plan from Ana White and I will be starting it as soon as the weather cooperates :/
Nicely done!

Nice job, I just finished mine and followed plans 90% of the way. I altered the legs to look beefier. I have not finished mine yet. I spaded the top and will be using it outdoors so unsure what I want to do for the finish. But thanks for sharing.
