Rustic Pine Side Table

We hiked to this awesome secluded beach, called Second Beach here in the Forks, WA area. You walk a mile or so thru this green, mossy, enchanted forest. The light breaks through the tall pines and mossy ferns lighting the unusual trees. Then, after ups and downs, ups and downs, you pass the hills and reach this mystical, (usually gray) beach. It is really something else you guys. If you're familiar with the Twilight series, you can almost imagine werewolf running around. ;-)

This project was completed on a small unfinished pine table. You could also do this on a refinished pine, though.



1.] SAND: Sand refinished or raw pine table with 80 grit, then 120. 

2.] STAIN: Apply stain with the grain, using a sponge brush. Apply generously and allow to air dry. This wood stain actually ages the wood, rather than just staining it, and wood will change color as it dries.

 3.] PROTECT: Apply Weatherwood Varnish to protect the wood top and to protect the color. I usually apply 2-3 coats with a sponge brush.

4.] PAINT: Paint the base with a one step furniture base. I use Pearl Coatings 1 Step Furniture Paint- BRITE.

I love they slight gray with the wood tone coming through. No need to topcoat these, unless you think your going to be handling them a lot.
