Reinspiring Barn Wood

When my cousin bought beautiful Wisconsin farm land to build a new home, a beautiful Wisconsin barn had to come falling down.  It was a little bit sad, and a little bit exciting at the same time. I think I squealed with excitement when we got the invitation to help tear it down.

Once used as a chicken barn, this thing was the perfect size for our first barn tear down. It was manageable but still oh, so exciting! The chippy, red and weathered wood made my heart flutter!

My style is a little bit primitive and a lotta bit rustic so this barn wood fit just perfectly in our home! See how it fits right in?

And, of course, the projects began! Our space at Ye Old Goat is bursting with barn wood. Not only did we back our shelves and walls with it…

… it is for sale too!

What projects have you made with barn wood?
