Old bench table

This item has been soldOld bench table

I was scouring Craigslist one day, looking for a new kitchen table for myself. Or at least something I could turn into a kitchen table. And I came across the coolest looking vintage workbench. I absolutely loved the shape and size and thought it might make the perfect table for my kitchen. It was pretty dingy and beat up so I made a new, large top for it, which I just screwed to the existing top, And then I added a new wood top to the shelf below so it would match. Then the entire lower shelf was wrapped in new wood trim so that when I painted it, it would be nice and smooth. The top and the shelf got a beautiful coat of black stain. And the remainder of the table got a beach glass blue paint. It fits 4-6 adults comfortably.

PAINT: Behr-Frozen Pond, PPU12-9, Semi Gloss
STAIN: Minwax Express Color-Onyx
