Barn Board Table Set





image

Materials: Jokkmokk

I run a small business on the side restoring and painting antique furniture. I was looking for a new kitchen table set for myself but could not find an antique one that fit the vision I had in mind. I came across this Ikea piece and thought what a challenge it would be… turn a plain, modern table into something old and rustic. I purchased the Jokkmokk table set off Kijiji for 50.00…. a great deal considering it was in great shape and they delivered it.

I went to Home Depot and purchased two pine boards and had them cut them in half for me. I also purchased some stain, large head roofing nails, wood glue and a wood decor piece.

First step was to glue the pine boards on top of the existing table top. Once glued I clamped them overnight. I also glued on the wood decorative piece to the front of the table. The next day I stained the pine boards with 2 coats of Minwax Poly Shades. I am a loyal user of Annie Sloan Products so of course the table and chairs were hand painted in “Old White” and clear waxed. Prior to the waxing I wet distressed both the table and chairs to help give it that aged look. Once everything was dry I hammered in some roofing nails along the edge of both ends. The only nails I could find were silver so I used a black sharpie marker and painted the heads of the nails.

    Hi, yes I could have but I can’t stand sanding! Lol. I also wanted the table top a bit bigger and the boards gave it more of a rustic feel.
