Reclaimed Wood Striped Coffee Table

31 Jul

Multi-colored coffee table made reclaimed wooden trim boards, 1 inch thick, salvaged from an early 1900s home in Virginia. Each board is distinctly different and show various stages of wear. Table top is assembled into a diagonal pattern in alternating colors. The boards vary between stained wood, white with teal showing through, brown and a rusty red brown. Table base is very sturdy, built from 2x6s and painted white, then scraped and distressed to match the table top. Early American style legs were used and stained dark brown. The legs simply thread into the table for easy assembly. The beauty of this piece is the patina of the original worn wood. Once completed, the top was lightly sanded to remove any loose or peeling paint, then sealed with a clear dull finish varnish for preservation. Great conversation piece for your living room or even patio or deck.

Size: 28″l x 20″w x 14″h

Window Coffee Table in Barn Red

31 Jan

Here’s another one of our window coffee tables that I finished up this weekend. Same basic design with a hinged top using a reclaimed window, hinges and cabinet pulls. Base is built solid out of new pine 2×6’s, with rough cut cedar planks staggered in 2″ and 4″ widths. The table received a base coat of kona stain, then topped off with a historic barn red paint. The sanded and scraped to give it a nice distressed finish. The table legs are also stained in kona colored stain. The entire piece was then hand waxed. The glass is original, but very solid and the undersides have been recaulked, as the original glaze breaks down over time.


Reclaimed 2 Window Coffee Table – Teal

17 Jan

Coffee table made from a matching pair of reclaimed windows which open up for storage. Each one of these tables is one of a kind. The exterior of the windows were left untouched to preserve their original patina. The table itself is made from new 2″ x 6″ studs. Interior shelf is made of rough cut 1″x4″ cedar board. All reclaimed hardware was used. (hinges and door handles – both brass with original patina). The table base is was stained, then painted “Monterey Bay Teal,” then sanded and scraped. The doors were oiled and then the entire piece was hand waxed.

Reclaimed Window Coffee Tables

16 Jan

Folks have shown a lot of interest in these after the first one we made last month and we’ve had quite a few requests for them. Here’s one just finished. We have at least two more coming within the next week or so. No two tables are identical, and every window is hand picked. We’re going to keep the design basically the same, using either rough cut cedar board or reclaimed barn board when available for the inside shelf. We’ll also be trying out some different colorsĀ  – all of which will complement the natural patina of the window.
