I'm lucky enough to know this barn wood's story. It came from my great grandfather's barn. Its part of the same barn wood that I used on my kitchen island. This was really simple to make, y'all. I took four pieces of it and wood glued 'em together. I used a clamp to hold it together while drying. EASY! This wood is tounge and groove, so those small horizontal pieces basically fit behind the groove of the vertical pieces. After it was dried, I did take hot glue and run along the seams just to give it a less splintery edge. I added a piece of twine with staples for hanging and put hot glue over the staples so they wouldn't scratch anything it was against.
The L came from Hobby Lobby. All I did was give it a coat of spray paint. I didn't touch the barn wood with any paint. The way it looks is the way it came off the barn and that's how I wanted it.
It makes me smile knowing a little piece of my Hey Bud's (I know, weird name for a grandfather, y'all know I'm a fruitcake though) farm is with me. A material piece anyway, I don't think my whole heart ever left.
Have you made any barn wood projects lately? I'd love to see them! I still have some of this wood and my head has been spinning with what all I can make!
