Barn Wood


Where to start with this piece.  My mother in law gave this to my husband and I when we got married...ages ago and it has sat in the basement...as a gem waiting to be discovered.

My husbands grandpa actually made this out of old barn wood!  My main concern was keeping the integrity of this piece, I lightly sanded it down to keep all the imperfections and texture.  I then brushed stain on and rubbed it off IMMEDIATELY with a wet rag.  The stain picked up all the imperfections as I had hoped.

I LOVE THIS PIECE!!!
