DIY Crate and Pipe Industrial Table

Usually I create new things out of the old, but this time I started with something new! Can you believe this started out as one of those plain wooden crates from the craft store?
A little stain and some copper piping can go a long way!
Here's the crate that I got from Michaels.
And here are the supplies that I used for the frame of the table.
And here's me in Home Depot looking like a crazy person trying to piece my frame together :)
I stained the crate using Dark Walnut and then used a simple white wash (mix of white paint and water) over top and sealed it with a flat topcoat.
I used the Hammered spray paint for the copper pipes and the Krylon Metallic for the tube straps that hold the pipe to the crate. All sealed with the Matte Finish.
