A friend asked me to make a table for her back entry. Her door enters right into the kitchen and all the "stuff" ends up on her kitchen island. She wanted a table 9" x 24" to fit in a small space near the door. The plan is that all the :stuff" will end up on the table allowing her space to actually cook using the island!
Here it is:
It is very tall and thin so it really needed something to fill all that space - the X was my friends idea - I think it turned out great! The top is oak stained with Minwax English Chestnut stain and the bottom is pine painted with Porter Paint's Copper Penny, distressed, rubbed with the English Chestnut stain and then everything is finished with Minwax Polycrylic.
