I built this a a birthday gift for my sister. My dad brought me a stack of old fence boards and I used them for everything but the legs (4x4s) and cross pieces (2x2s). I hand planed the boards the assembled everything using Kreg jig, pocket screws and glue. The top I stained with a mix of minwax mahogany and walnut then waxed. The base was painted an off white and distressed. My sister loved it!
