I started using the basic dimensions and cut list from this plan. I decided to use as much repurposed barn wood as I could (80%) in this project. I tried to keep the rough cut weathered look. On the sides I used wrought iron balusters in place of the wood X pattern specified in the plan. I used matching wrought iron drawer hardware and topped it off with a butcher block table top. This is my very first piece of furniture that I have ever made and I'm very happy with the way it turned out!

Estimated Time Investment

I really like the use of balusters. The visual space it takes up is much less than if you would have made the side from solid wood. Nice Job!
