I’ve got to give my wife all the credit on this one. From design to finish, this was all her. She surprised me when she told me that she wanted to learn Sketch-Up, but even more when she actually designed a table and built it all in the same week. So here it is her first table design!

Finishing

Hey, it’s Jamie! I hope you all enjoyed my first table design and build. So, I’ll admit I completely winged the finish, but I think it turned out pretty awesome! I am going to do my best to walk you through the steps but I do promise to post a picture tutorial soon!

Step 1: Stain 

For this step I used Varathane Espresso. Using a foam brush, I applied the stain let it sit for roughly 30 seconds and wiped clean with a stain rag.

Step 2: White Wash 

To make the white wash mixture I used half Rust-Oleum chalk paint in linen white and half water. Mix well, and using a stain rag wipe over the surface. This will give it a grayish tone.

Step 3: Dry Brush

The last step is to dry brush over top of the white washed surface. Using a dry brush, I used the same linen white chalk paint from Rust-Oleum and dipped the tip of the brush into the paint. Getting just a little paint on the end of the brush, I then dabbed the brush onto a piece of scrap wood to take off any excess paint. Then, going with the grain of the wood, I used quick strokes. You can add more or less depending on the look you desire!

Sorry for the lack of pictures during the finish process,  sometimes you just get in the zone!
