Wanna build a nice looking decorative table like this one by using those ‘useless’ wooden crates? You’re in the right place!
Bought the crates at Home Depot, around $10 a crate. I sanded them down with 120 grit followed by 220 grit.
On to the staining, I used a dark walnut stain here.
I wanted to make the wood look weathered so I have it some character. Caused this effect using a screw prior to staining. Also hit it with hammers and random garage objects to give it an interesting look.
Now on to the Poly. I used an oil sped fast drying poly, 2 coats with sanding in between using 220 grit sandpaper.
Put it together! I used 1″ screws to put it together
Not for the stand. I used a 2×6 to create an 18″ square.
Had to fasten the stand with nails as I didn’t have long enough screws. I screwed it to the table.
