Barn Wood Coffee Table

A while ago I scored some major goods from a barn.

One of the things I was most excited about was the barn wood I bought.  I had no idea what I would do with it, but I just loved the possibilities.

Hubby decided to work some magic and the pictures show the rest of the story!

Lots of sanding.  She is perfectly smooth.

Stained with three coats of protective finish.

My neighbor found these cast iron legs that worked perfectly for the wood.

Isn’t it funny how he doesn’t want to part with his baby?  He wants me to get my stuff out (that I worked hard on), but he will find a place for his masterpiece. 

Anyway, it is a beauty and quite unique.  For now, we are keeping her.

It totally reminds me of Lucy Rosen's cocktail table in her living room. It would be great in your cottage! xo-Ra
