Antique Barn Wood Table


The weather is getting warmer, and my desire to eat outside is very strong!  But I did not have a very good outdoor table to eat on, and zero chairs.  So I took this antique barn wood table that I made myself and moved it to the center of my patio.  Then I went to the store to try and hunt down chairs that would fit into our budget, and the stars must have been aligned just right because the first store I went to, I found clearance chairs that work perfectly!  Don’t you love it when that happens?

Now about the table.  Several years ago, I purchased barn wood that was from a 100 year old torn down barn.  I have used it for so many things.  There were some longer pieces left a year ago, and I desperately wanted a herb garden on my back porch.  So I made this table out of saw horses I purchased from Lowes and painted red.  Then I linked the barn wood panels together and made a very long table.  Turns out, my herb garden needed more sunlight, so this year the table I made either needed to be moved or dismantled.  I must say, I like this idea much better.  It is a great place to eat, and fills my need to up cycle and recreate items.

Easy project and relatively cheap.  But more than anything, it is a great table full of history, ready to create more history with a family of five eating at it during the summer.

Enjoy your time outdoors!

    1. I am so happy you like it. It was super easy to build, and gives the back porch so much character. New stuff just cannot do that sometimes. What did your husband think?

      1. Glad to hear he liked it! I look forward to seeing what you guys decide to do!

    1. Thank you! And yes, I have two cute big dogs in the back yard. They are rescue dogs and the nicest animals in the world! The one in the picture has to have a toy in her mouth at all times when I am out there. She is really funny.

  1. This a terrific table made fantastic with the new chairs. A semi tongue and grove barn wood is very unique. This table and chairs bleed character.

    1. Thank you! You made me sound very fancy! I am glad you like it, especially from a man who knows what he is talking about. Huge compliment.
