Plank table

It's a rainy double feature kind of day. Why have I been cursed with responsibilities!? Here's my newest table experiment. It was loosly inspired by some tables I saw a while back in portland, OR made from reclaimed painted floorboards by ReFind furniture


 
I wanted something playful that wasn't going to be overbearing- any table of mine needs to be a showcase for fresh flowers!



 
The poplar is so beautiful I wanted to highlight the grain instead of obscuring it.



 
before the stain and white wash was added- still a good looking table.

I like. We've been collecting boards for bookshelves, but I think odd boards would work in a table like this too - tho they'd have to be the same height.
