Barn Wood Sofa Table

Sometimes, I talk to wood and visa-versa, it talks to me.  I can pick up a piece of reclaimed barn wood and it tells me what it wants to be.  Such was the case with this sofa table.

When I grabbed this piece of lovely, warped, gouged, and imperfect slab of barn wood out of a pile I knew it would make a lovely sofa table top.

The construction was easy--I added some long front apron pieces to some 2x8's.

A shelf on the bottom helps to sturdy and square up the table and is a great place for baskets.

I secured the top from the underside.  A sanding, some grey paint on the legs and apron, and stain finished the look.

I love the scratches and dings on the table top and the beautiful, aged wood patina.

A simple build for a versatile table--this works wonderfully behind a sofa, in an entry, as a buffet in the dining room, even the dog approves. Does reclaimed wood speak to you?

Not only am I sharing this table, but I'd also like to share a few of my favorite bloggers.  Grab a cup of tea and take a few minutes (or more!) to visit them and say hi!
