Ways to Repurpose Barn Wood

Spread the love

Who doesnt love statement pieces with history? We have a barn on our property that is falling down. Short story is that we had an old house on that property that we tore down and built a new house. The property was originally my husband’s grandparents. So it was important to us to combine some of the old with the new. We tore out one interior wall in the barn and saved beams from a lean to that was knocked down.

Interior Wall

The first thing we built was a bar for our basement.

The bar is made out of 2 by 4’s that we wrapped the barn siding on. The trim also came from the lean to that was torn down.

The leftover wall pieces was made into a shelf.

The beams were used for the bar stool seats.

Beams are great for this since they can be ripped down into thick boards.

Beams can also be used for your living room furniture.

And finally you can use a barn door and remake into a flower pot stand.

Here are some pictures of the barn and potential future projects. Read again when inspiration hits!!!

UPDATE as of Nov 2020
