Well, after 22,000 of YOU <hey, thanks!> pinned the console table, of course we HAD to put together coffee table plans for you!
I ENCOURAGE you to stop over and visit Hillary and read about how she battled a wild fire to build this coffee table!
PS - Hillary is also be sharing her finishing tutorial and <gasp!> an end table plan!!!! It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. When you drill to attach the tablet top to the base, do you drill from above and fill the holes in the table to with wood filler ? I had to experiment with many different stains, after much experimentation I got pretty close to the results I was after, it seems I got lucky as I ended up settling on using the same stain you did! The "at night with high humidity" part actually turned out to be pretty important, my results in California during the day in April -- the pine ply surface would be too dry to 'thinly spread out the stain' or 'rub it into the grain' as the pine kept sucking up the stain instantly and turning completely black, VERY little excess stain would wipe off onto the dry towel. If you are new to wood finishing like me & trying to duplicate the results of this finish (or my finish) here are a few tips, I hope you can learn from my mistakes (that is if you can get through reading it!
Thank You again Author for your informative post, it set me on my way to learning all of this stuff & was very helpful! Yep, that's a 2x4 - and some 2x6s and 1x3 boards - and you can cut them up and screw them together to make this coffee table! My friend Whitney from Shanty2Chic wrote me about a coffee table plan idea and I thought you'd love it too!

It is based on Pottery Barn's Rhys Coffee table and features and open shelf and six drawers.
I love this coffee table and was wondering if it would be to hard to take both end tables and turn them into a coffee table similar to this?
This would be pretty easy (almost instinctive) on a smaller project, but I was doing a large project so it was a bit difficult to try to cover a whole surface and wipe the excess off before too much color was absorbed. The stain would come out COMPLETELY black and would soak in & dry way too fast to "spread the stain out thin" if I tried to work during the day with lesser humidity.
If the wood is absorbing too much stain and ending up darker then desired--sand to a higher grit, likely #220 or #240 or higher. You can never sand TOO much (unless it is plywood, in that case you CAN sand through the first layer of ply veneer! I hope this information helps the next person on google who stumbles across this post & wants to get similar finish results on a project. I had to use OIL based stain--It was not possible to use this technique at all, or get even close to these results what so ever day or night, using water based stains. If the opposite is your problem, I don't recommend sanding less or a lower grit, its best to always sand to at-least #220. Clear mixed with a little brown wax, followed by a coat of liming wax then a final coat of clear wax.
I dipped a rag into the stain, and rubbed it into the wood pretty fast so that it only picked up a little of the color.


Clear coat dries in two stages, first it "sets" and then it "cures", normally it takes 45 min to set and will be mostly dry but tacky, then it takes 24 hrs to cure and will be hard & dry when done curing. For educational purposes--the closest product I had some luck with in water base for my results was Minwax brand water based 'ebony' color stain--which did not give me the results I wanted, but it wasn't too far off. DIY blogger Ana White takes you through the steps which initially look really difficult but only took her the best part of 2 hours so fear not! It is possible but not preferable to sand between staining coats with a high grit above #400 to open the wood pores up a bit if necessary). The most influential factors on how dark or light your results are (with a single coat of stain) is the weather (how hot it is and how humid), how much you sanded and to what grit (higher grit, lighter results and more grain will raise and show through.), how long you let the stain sit on the wood before wiping it off, and what type of wood you are working with -- in that order from most important to least important last. But, I think $260 for the table still beats paying retail ?? molindeI just purchased the legs in knotty pine and it was about $130 including shipping. You are two extremely talented women & are doing just what you were meant to do by sharing all these wonderful projects with us. I’ve been watching some videos on how to stain and they all say to apply the stain, wait 5 minutes and then wipe away the excess stain.
Joe Cyprowskiyou can watch videos all you want but it a HANDS on training that teaches you the most.
