I wanted a wood entry table without breaking the bank! I was searching for one that was long enough for my entry way and have the rustic wood look but was unable to find. Headed over to the local home improvement store and got 4-2x2 2-2x4 and 2-wider wood panels for the top. Several wood screws and ready for sanding. Purchased two in one poly and stain paint, did three coats and all done! I get so many compliments on my new table!
