Custom handmade grey barn door table
Status: Custom Piece for Client
This rustic, grey barn door dining table was custom made for a cottage in Bracebridge. The couple picked out the door from the collection in my workshop; a grainy door salvaged from a barn in Glen Morris. The reclaimed barn door was disassembled, cleaned, sanded down, cut to size, and reassembled to make a rustic tabletop full of original character. The clients wanted an aged, silver-grey barn board finish; it was my first time with this type of colour but it turned out great. This faux-grey finish really brings out the original cracks and dips in the wood. The final touch was adding old square nails into the original nail holes.
After the tabletop was finished, it needed something to sit on. The legs and most of the frame were handmade from salvaged barn timbers, but I wanted to do something a little different for the cross-piece. I found an old yoke in Haldimand County which turned out to be the perfect size, and brought an entirely different level of history to the piece.
The final product is a grey barn door table that somehow both sleek and rustic – a perfect fit for the modern cottage.
