I love this table, especially the finish! I used Apulis' idea and mitered the corners on the table top. The legs are constructed with 2x4s. The center panels are striped and screwed to the tabletop frame from underneath.
I think I spent around $50 total!!
I used Rust-Oleum's Ultimate Wood Stain in Kona for the legs and frame. The panels are stained with Minwax Special Walnut, and Rust-Oleum's Ultimate Wood Stain in Paprika and Sunbleached. I finished it off withRust-Oleum's Ultimate Polyurethane in Satin.
