Here at The Old Barn we end up completing a lot of custom projects every year and from those projects we often find inspiration for our standardized furniture lines. We love building unique one of a kind items for interior designers and other customers world wide to match unique project designs.
Often we mix mediums of steel, wood, fiberglass and other metals in our designs. Utilizing ultra protective wood stains, paints and varnishes are also a part of the program to reach a specific aesthetic or feel.

FARMHOUSE Chairs in Old America Rustic Finish air drying at the Pletcher family farm Nappanee, Indiana
Here at the Old Barn, we do rustic and its all we do. Typically however we use new wood and distress it to meet our design criteria. We use reclaimed wood so seldom we can’t even remember the last time we used it (come to think of it we cant remember a lot of things). This is for several reasons, one is that reclaimed wood adds incredible labor and cost and secondly its hard to make it safe. Splitting, cracking and general failure is common. Even worse is the potential for us to miss a tiny nail that ends up harming the customer. We don’t have anything wrong with reclaimed wood, we just don’t use it.
What’s that you say? You want a reclaimed wood project? We can certainly help as we have many sources and our hands are skilled at working with all types of projects. However, our focus will remain on building our ornate Adirondack designs using new materials that we distress because its what we do.
