    My wife bought the place we live on in 1978 and there is old house on the property that had stacks of tongue and grove salvaged wood in one of the rooms. It's also so the walls and two lean too are framed with 3 of them stacked together.

    I dragged a lot of them out and washed and dried good and made 4 end tables, a coffee table and a tv stand.

    I love it all! We have a small barn on one of our properties. A local guy offered me $50 for it so he could use the wood. Hubs laughed. It would seem that Hubs is going to use it to make my farm table and some doors. I didn't even respond to the $50 offer.

    This is a great thread! For Christmas my daughter wanted Shabby Chic decor...that entailed those old wood windows with chipped white paint...an old drying rack, old strawberry picking basket, old metal stars that were used to decorate a barn, an old milk can with hues of green and blue, and an iron fleur de lis piece in white chipped paint. She really wanted a barn door but those are not affordable here so she found an old wood door with faded blue paint that has a lot of panes in it...so that is for her birthday. I love the stuff you are making on this thread and also Cabin Fever!

    Since it has been too wet to plant I made a few more things. My wife bought me a lathe so I have been practicing turning.
