The Finish Move

Weathered wood can be seen all over Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Arhaus, and others. Is it really weathered wood or do they just make it look that way? I’m not sure, but I had fun with experimenting on how to create a similar look with your common premium whitewood from the big box store. It’s a straight forward process that I think I’ll use on some more projects to come. I also love the two-tone look and look forward to using that some more in the future.

So…you saw how I built this modern farmhouse table, here, now I’m going to walk through the process I did to finish the table.

First step was to paint the entire base white. For the paint, I just used some Valspar-white-semi-gloss straight off the shelf from Lowe’s. I did two light coats of paint to make sure that every square inch was covered.

While the base paint was drying, I used some Special Walnut stain on the tabletop and the benchtop.
