Do you like building rustic furniture?

If you like to build things, here is a tip that will save you a ton of money. One of the catch phrases often heard when the talk shifts to Country Rustic and Primitive Décor is “Barn Wood”. True “Barn Wood” should come from a barn, but lets face it, how many people do you know that have an old barn they will let you tear down? I’ll bet not many. “Barn Wood” is basically a wood that is old, weathered and pretty rough. That being the case, what would be the problem of using any wood that meets those requirements to give you the same effect?

There are many Lumber Re-claimers that will sell you real “Barn Wood” but it isn’t going to be cheap. Here is a tip for rustic furniture builders...old fence boards, good as barn wood in most long as it's dry and termite free,,,it's pre shrunk and pre dried and pre weathered from the sun and rain. If you live where there are no old barns these old fence boards make great tables and benches and they are FREEEEEEEE. Just keep your eyes open as you are driving around. I’ll bet you can find someone in your area that is tearing down an old fence and will be glad to give you what ever you need.
