Barn Board Dining Table Set
I've been wanting to make one of these for sooooo long. I've done barn board tops on sideboards, islands, coffee tables, dressers, but never a dining table. I decided this was the perfect set for a barn board top because the woodgrain on the original table top was fairly underwhelming and because I really liked how modern the set was otherwise. I knew the juxtaposition of the rustic, satisfyingly textured top with the modern table base would be so delicious. I sanded the boards until they were smooth as a baby's bottom, then stained them a rich dark walnut, then I sealed the top. It's so smooth, and has so much character! The solid oak chairs are painted a black gloss enamel, and keeping with the rustic meets modern theme, I upholstered the (very very comfortable) seat cushions in a wonderful canvas sack cloth. I think the results are pretty dynamite! This one's available, so let me know if you're interested!!
