I pretty much just followed the plan. It did not take long to build, but I spent quite a bit of time on the finish. I sanded and sanded and sanded. I was going for a restoration Hardware type finish and got pretty close. This was the first piece of furniture I built. Recently moved to a farm so have been building farm needs projects and finally had time to build some furniture. I purchased the bench cushions.
Thanks for the awesome plans, information and site Ana! I love it!
I wanted my table darker though so I used more of the darker stain. Started with the gray, then dark, then a mixture.
