Industrial Farm Table

I saw a tutorial for this table at Frugal Farmhouse Design so I decided to do one of my own.

I actually have two of them, one was my first and I didnt like the way it turned out, it was too pink. My second one is a little bit longer and more rustic on top.

I have to admit it was super easy, but the labor on the top to get the finish I wanted was way more intense. 

Check it out and see what you think.
This was my first one. The top turned out way too light for me.

2nd table

I love the way this top turned out. I love the dark and light contrast, it looks like barnwood with a shiny coat of poly on it.



Really cool!


Now I am on the hunt for 2 rugs. One for the living room and here in the dining room. I am thinking sisal. Tell me what you think!

I'm in love with this. We are looking and a kind of similar table at Restoration Hardware that's 1100 bucks! What did you do for the top? How'd you make that happen?

Since this table has such hard lines I would put a very plush soft rug under it. I'm thinking something like shag or wool. It would be a nice contrast to the hard industrial feel of this table.
