I like the idea for kitchen counter. (AW) DIY wood plank kitchen table picture step by step ~ would also be really really awesome for kitchen counters! Stained black with high gloss protectant over them.
painted the legs with Coco before painting Duck Egg as the top coat. Then, I heavily distressed the legs, so the Coco base coat and natural wood showed through. I finished the legs with clear and dark wax for an antiqued finish.
My husband made my 10 foot 8 inch farmhouse table. Top made with shiplap. I painted and distressed it. Legs and apron ordered from Osborne Wood Products. But you have to do cross pieces underneath for stability.
