Barn Board Coffee Table Set

Here's a barn board coffee table set I just finished for some friends. This was such a fun project, and I was so satisfied with the results that I went out and got another vintage coffee table set so I could make my own too. I found the set, painted an atrocious blue, at the flea market a few weeks ago. I repainted the legs Benjamin Moore's powder puff (a color I am now obsessed with) and then added the antique barn board tops. I'd been itching to do a barn board coffee table set for a few months, and I was so excited to get started on this one. I think it turned out pretty handsome, what do yo think? They're going into a modern home that is getting redecorated in a farmhouse style, I did a dining table for these friends about a month ago, and I wanted the coffee table set to blend well with it, as they'll be in adjoining rooms. I haven't started my set yet, but I think I'll roll out my new coffee table set when I switch over to the Christmas/Winter decor in about a month.
It's another gloomy sort of day here in Connecticut, I hope the weather is better wherever you are!
Yucky blue, but I knew they would be perfect as soon as I saw them at the flea market. I love the lines, the turned legs, really wonderful form.

And here's the dining table that the coffee table set matches.


  1. WOW! That looks great!!!!!!! I never find anything good at the flea market. Just fleas. :)


  2. These are really beautiful! What a transformation. I love the rustic look.
