my end tables

I used all reclaimed lumber and DIY stains for these. The brown came from chocolate coffee so the tables give off a faint chocolate smell :) The plans came from Ana mostly but I changed the bottom shelf so that it uses pallet slats to give it more of a rustic look and to also use what I had available.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
with nails, screws and sealer about $20, maybe less.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
pallet and lumber stack spacers
Finish Used
chocolate flavored coffee, watered down white acrylic and tempera paint mix with a poly acrylic sealer.
I watered down the white to where it made it look like a white wash when applied and sanded down a little on the coffee stain to give it a bit of a weathered look before sealing.
