Reclaimed from an old barn, this barn door was given a new life as a dining table just in time for the holidays!
Notice the hardware still attached to the door? It really gives it the “wow” factor.

That’s nice…I had to go out to my barn and make sure the door was still there…

Beautiful! Are those sewing tables you used as bases? I love it.

It’s cool. One thing you might consider is an epoxy coating. You can leave all hardware in tacked the. It would be visible but the table would be perfectly smooth.

That is an awesome use for that door. I agree with Monte, the epoxy would add longevity to your table. Nice work.

This is gorgeous. I love the door with the hardware. Nice use of the treadle bases. I have several of those just waiting to be repurposed. What a great table :)
