Rustic “X” End Table – Ana White Plans

I can’t contain my excitement any longer. I’ve been lusting after these Rustic X End tables built by this lady, that I found on this website.

I also used the vinegar/steel wool stain solution that is mentioned here, but I neglected to follow the directions because I didn’t print them out. I do this a lot. Just fly by the seat of my pants. So I didn’t prep the table first with the tea solution. I’m planning on following the directions on the next piece we are building which just so happens to be the Rustic X Coffee Table. But enough about all that, here is the reveal.

And I love it!

I have to blow it off, because I sanded it quite a bit in order to get the “worn” areas on the edges. And it’s pretty apparent which pieces took to the vinegar/steel wool stain and which pieces should have had the initial tea prepping done. It’s also not perfect. We had some issues with the angles on the “X”, and so there are a few gaps. This was definitely good practice before we started working on the “Rustic X Coffee Table”, as we were able to adjust the angles to fit.

All-in-all…I’m delighted with the results and can’t wait to start using it. It will be a definite upgrade from the horrid looking tables we are currently using…

“Cringe!”

Enjoy your weekend!
