Farmhouse Bench

Submitted by kaytrishjr on Wed, 01/25/2012 - 18:27

I made the large rustic bench to go at the bottom of my bed. I am so happy at the finish product, now I'm going to build the whole table and bench set.

Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
For the top, I used the brown paper bag technique that everyone is using on their floors. I wanted to try it on something small before I put it on my floors. The bottom part is just black paint with satin poly.

I built this and did the black bottom with wood top and love it. However, that brown bag affect is to die for! Love, love, love!!!

thanks for the idea to do it as a table top

i had been planning to use the paper bagging for a stairway, but this gave me a chance to practice on a smaller project .. and i LOVE it!! how is yours holding up? i only did 4 layers of poly but for a seat i think it will be plenty.
