This primitive shaker style table is approximately 26 inches high, 25 inches long and 14 inches wide. The base is pine, with boot jack legs, is painted black over mustard, distressed and sanded and a final coat of stain applied for the aged look. The top is either pine or ash? Not sure- got the board in a pile of free wood, it seemed a bit heavy for pine- so I am going with ash or?? Top is finished with 4+ coats of tung oil and the whole piece has been handrubbed with beeswax.

BTW I can’t see anything else than potted plants on it, maybe the “primitive” feel to it :)

It’ s a bit big for a plant stand. The primitive crowd uses these types of stands for their crock shelf.

That one’s purdy, Kelly. I like the two color effect. Top looks like ash from here. Bet you don’t get to keep it long.

Thanks again everyone. I really like the simplicity of this project. I think the antique pottery piece that I dusted off is what makes it look good. :)

Well Topa, you can do it. Easy stuff. :)
Devann- I’m with you, I think it’s ash. :)

Really cute. Love the crock too. I’ve never used tung oil or bees wax. Interested in trying it.

Nice work on the finishes, the antiquing finish on the legs came out grand. Cool piece, enjoy…BC
