Barn wood and reclaimed wood are quickly becoming more popular as furniture choices for modern and contemporary living rooms. Because of their rich texture, color, strength and naturally occurring characteristics, they offer endless design possibilities. Reclaimed wood furniture can be used for dining tables, office tables, shelving, cabinets, and even headboards for children’s rooms. They are also used for flooring in homes and in rural and suburban yards. This natural resource is used in many types of outdoor furniture including benches, swings, chairs, swings, Adirondack Chairs, rocking chairs, arbors, gazebos, gliders, porch swings, planters, garden benches, garden tables, pool tables, planters, wine racks, saddle racks, garden tools, pet stools, saddle blankets, bird tables, cross-stitch, and needlework.
Barn wood dining tables come in a wide variety of styles, finishes, and sizes. Wood that has been harvested from live trees or recently dead ones has the inherent strength and character of a tree that has lived for centuries. The wood has been naturally aged for several decades, to give it its natural beauty and versatility. This aged wood often comes in unique grain patterns, called “saw-tooth” patterns, that give each piece a distinctive look. When applying this finishing process to a newly harvested, dry and stripped back piece of wood, the grains of the wood will be visible for the first time. If you have ever purchased an antique, you probably noticed the beautiful honey-like honey color the grain had when new and noticed how much older pieces look like they’ve aged in the process.
Adding the beauty of aged wood to your kitchen by creating a Barn Wood Dining Table is easy. First, select a table base that is one half the size of the table top when using a standard dining chair, then add sandpaper to the tabletop using a power sander. The tabletop can then be stained in the desired color and treated with a preservative. Sanding and staining only needs to be done once the table top is ready. If you choose to use a table base without a tabletop, you can stain and sand only on the table top.
Once the tabletop is stained and sanded to your desired finish, you can begin the project of transforming your dining room into an old barn wood style. You will need an assortment of hardware to finish off the look of the table top such as dining room table hardware and a few drawers that will match your barn wood style cabinet pulls. You may also want to add shelf paper to dress up empty storage cabinets. If you find that you do not have enough space to complete all of these projects at once, simply divide the project into two or three separate activities until you have enough time to accomplish each task. You may even want to put out a few woodworking projects for sale in the hopes that someone will want to complete the tasks for you.
One project that would not take too long to complete is building a small barn stool that will be perfect for sitting around the dining room table top. This is a great project to encourage kids to get creative because the stool is small and can be made from items that are found at most local craft stores. Using woodworking tools such as a circular saw, a jigsaw, and a hammer, your child can transform an old pair of jeans into a functional stool. If you would rather provide your kid with a very special item that he or she can use for many years to come, why not consider purchasing a functional but beautiful old wood in a barn wood table top?
A barn wood table is an inexpensive way to create the look of a cabin in the woods. Using wood as the primary material will allow your table to be fully functional for many years to come. If your kid’s interest moves to using the wood furniture you built yourself, you could plan on making several new wood furniture pieces over the next couple of years. A beautiful wooden stool is sure to become a family heirloom. If your son or daughter loves the outdoors and the feel of sleeping outside in the fresh air, a wooden stool is a perfect addition to any child’s outdoor play area. And if you are ready to teach your kids about the beauty of the outdoors through entertaining tables, a DIY barn wood table will become an important part of their childhood memories.
