Wood Chevron Pattern on Side Table

Loving these two current trends - 



Natural Wood.

Pin It!
A great combination for this little side table!

I saw this idea over at Thistlewood Farms.

Rachel, my daughter-in-law, loved it too

and had the perfect accent table

for this project.

We took out the glass top

and cut a piece of underlayment for the top.

Pin It!
We removed the intricate wood corner brackets

and replaced them with a clean line board trim.

We used 5" lath boards to make our pattern.

Use wood glue to attach lath to board.

Pin It!

Trim edges with jigsaw.

Fill in blank spaces with small pieces of lath.

We used Early American Stain

and Polycrylic Gloss Sealer.

Here it is in Rachel's home!

Pin It!

Great texture and line!

Cottage Cute.

Here's to handmade homes,

What an awesome project you two. I would have to say that you have the perfect daughter in-law and she has the perfect mother in-law. You two seem to fit very well together. The perfect apprentice! I love the butter milky color of the table. Beautiful color!
