This has to be one of the easiest things I have EVER done! I am serious! If you have ever considered doing this, stop thinking about it and just DO IT!
Sorry for the lack of pictures. We did this the night before my daughters first birthday party and pictures of the process where the last thing on my mind.
I had a small table and needed a bigger serving space. I went to our local hardware store and purchased a few 6 in planks. I like the wide plank look, but since this was to be like a buffet/server table, I didn't want to do too wide. I put liquid nails down on the table, lined up the planks where I wanted them then the hubs screwed them in from underneath.
DONE! I did end up putting a coat of stain on it but I really wanted to try this pickeling process. But I was crunched for time so we will save that for another day!
Just recently I added a drop cloth table skirt. The table is rustic and the skirt dresses this girl up a little bit. I cut, ironed and simply stapled the drop cloth to the underneath!
