Weathered Stain

Hey my friends!

Happy February!  This is a SWEET month, isn’t it? 

I hope you are having beautiful weather wherever you are :)

Today I wanted to share one change we have made to our farm table.  Remember, Mr. Buckets made it out of reclaimed lumber?  On the table top, we added a gray-weathered stain.  I simply rubbed it in generously with an old rag.

Before the gray stain, the top seemed too bright.  This gives it a subtle, more “weathered” look.

I believe we purchased the stain at Home Depot.

It’s called Rust-oleum Ultimate Wood Stain- sunbleached.

We also applied it to the top of the bench.

The blue enamel pitcher holds the roses, and my antique veggie baskets display the candy tuft plants.  I lined the baskets first with burlap ribbon.

I found these cool paper straws at White Flower Farmhouse.  LOVE her shop!

And, speaking of shops…I will be opening my ONLINE SHOP soon.

No date set just yet, but I’m working on it :) 

Some items you see in this post will be listed in my shop.

Guess what?  Mr. Buckets & I are shopping the Canton Flea Market this weekend!

Will I see you there??

I love the stain on the table and the bench, Becky. It looks wonderful! Your roses are gorgeous in the pitcher and I love the little white flowers in the baskets. Your mantel looks just perfect. I was just thinking about changing mine up for the spring...thanks for some great ideas.

Lee Caroline said...

I love your table and your vignettes Becky, for some odd reason I am still not receiving your post updates. I am signing up for email again today to see if it works this time.

I love your photos and great you are opening a shop, I am planning to also with a friend but NZ is a bit slow to buy on line. We are buying up vintage
finds and giving them a more modern twist but will be a some time before we have enough stock to open the store.

I might actually try your wash on my pine table I have just French washed as I like that grey look to the top rather than the yellowy old pine on my table top.


Kynli said...

I love your table, so pretty with the stain over it! Beautiful and the bench is pretty as well!!

Debbie said...

I just love this whole post. I'm going to be pinning like crazy. (Right now, my pinning connect seems to be on the fritz so I'm waiting.) I love those pots on the top of the chandelier base. You have a fantastic, fantastic eye!

Bridget@Flour N Friends said...

I want your table! It's so cute and rustic. I just got married and had lots of burlap in my wedding! I got married in a barn :) I'd love it if you checked it out! I'm going to have to share your blog with my mom! You'll have to check her blog out too over at, I think you'd really like it!

was your table just natural wood before you put the stain on it? You have a lovely home and you are one very talented decorator
