Salvaged Pine Coffee Table & The Vecchio Bridge


We were on our way to dinner, but the second we stepped out the amazing sunset demanded to be seen! So we headed to our favorite spot, the Ponte Vecchio bridge, to take in the colors. The bridge was a totally party, as usual!! Enjoy the videos!



Let's get to this awesome project. It's my favorite kind of post! Where usually hard to achieve colors are a piece of cake! This client wanted to match her new farmhouse coffee table to Restoration Harware's "natural" color, on this Salvaged Trestle Table. This look is easy to achieve on pine and it's just a subtle aging.



Materials


  • Pine Furniture 

Directions


1.] SAND: Begin by sanding the wood piece, that way the wood will easily accept the stain and create a good pallet to begin your work. Start with a rough grit with a 120 grit. 


2.] STAIN: Once the wood has been stripped or sanded back down to raw, you can stain it using Weatherwood Stain's Reclamation stain. Simply apply Reclamation with a sponge brush, brushing product onto sanded wood and allowing it to air dry. Allow to dry one hour. You'll see in the above time-lapse, the color change is subtle and is pretty similar to Restoration Hardware's "Natural" color. 

3.] SEAL: Apply a wax or varnish seal coat to protect the piece. SatinVarnish will give the look of raw wood, but the protection of cabinetry!





The texture on this maple just makes the color POP, don't you think? This stain will turn most wood species this shade.
