My wife wanted a small bench for our entryway/foyer. I happened to have some reclaimed pine barn wood laying in my shop, so I whipped this up.
The original plan was to use a colored wax or thinned paint on it to give it a weathered appearance (which is why I did screws and plugs from the top - I thought they were going to be painted over), but the wood turned out too beautiful with all of the character. We couldn't bring ourselves to paint it.
There are a few more pics and details in my blog post about this small reclaimed barn wood bench.
