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!
