Well I found out I did not like the Tung Oil by itself. It leaves the wood kind of rough. It would not be good when you needed to wipe it off or dust. I decided to put a couple of coats of satin minwax polyurethane on it. This way it protects from spills but is smoother to touch and not too shiny. Prim things are not shiny so I hate it when things shine. Just my opinion. Here is the last photo. Hubby made two benches to go with it. I prefer a bench on one side and chairs on the other.

- I am 55 years old, a homemaker and a mother of two wonderful children. A daughter named Toby who is 36 and a son named Jesse who is 33. I am a Mammaw of four of the best grandbabies I could ever ask for. AJ age 8, Kylie age 7, Bradley age 6 and Gracie age 5. I have been happily married to my hubby Jim for 6 wonderful years. We are all happy and healthy, and we are all blessed. I was born a hillbilly but raised as a hoosier most of my life. I love bluegrass music and decorating our home with primitives. Come on in and sit a spell and enjoy a tour of our home. I hope you find something that will inspire the primitive decorator in you.
