The old barn doors were found on craigslist for free, I knew this one would make a fabulous table top. Now the search was on for some legs.
A couple of weeks later I found the table for eight dollars at a garage sale. It had a hideous laminate top but the legs were wood and I knew they would work.
After taking the table apart, a new apron was made with one of the old barn doors. My husband used a 2x10 on top to give it some height.
Then I primed and painted with two coats of exterior paint.
After the paint was dry, I brushed this glaze on and wiped it with a damp cloth.
Then came the fun part...the hand sander! My first time using one.
I would have been there all day distressing this by hand.
Here is a close up of the barn door turned table top.
The clock needs to come down a bit.
For less than forty dollars I have a multipurpose potting table that will get a lot of use this summer. I can already picture it with candles burning and a pitcher of frozen margaritas!
