I used a modified version of the Farm House table combined with the Narrow Farmhouse table I already built (see project here). I also took ugly $10 craigslist parson style chairs and modified them to be stools....
|This table is roughly 7'x3' but it looks so tiny in this photo.|
So, here it goes. I found old barn wood on Craigslist. The dude brought me a huge stack of the 10' boards , all varying widths for a mere $40 (including the delivery) OUTSTANDING!
The trouble with Craigslist bargains for me, is there is always that BUT. The barn wood was not immune to the BUT. I had to purchase a belt sander because of the really rough texture of the wood. Which I undoubtedly burned up. I exchanged it for a beefer, more expensive version & spent far too long sanding away until my planks were baby butt smooth.
