Barn Wood Shelves and Cabinets

I love the look of old timey shelves and cabinets in my craft booth and in my home.
  The little one above is a very versatile piece. It is small enough you can move it easily and tuck it here and there without needing much room.

Here's another photo to show you more of about what size it really is, since I don't have the measurements laying around. 

It's over in the left hand corner.

It is just the perfect size for little things in my craft booth.
And best of all, it was free!

Yep, free! That is after my husband made it for me based on a drawing that I free handed.
This old barn lumber came from a man that traded some to my husband if he would make him a kitchen cabinet out of it.  (I have a photo of it somewhere.) So he did. And in turn, we got a free load of old barn lumber.
Awesome right?

My husband also made a few more larger ones for me to use as display shelves. 

Here is a few more pics of them at various angles.


and here you can kinda see a few of them at once:
If you look close at the photo below, you can see the easy upside down  "V" cut that is super easy and looks so prim!
 They are deep enough that they can hold a lot of craft items and goodies!
And oh yea, I had better not forget to include a photo of the faux fireplace frame also made out of this old barn wood.
It's nothing fancy at all but it helps tie in all the wood around my craft booth.
I helped my husband just piece together a few of the old 4x4 barn lumber pieces as legs. He used a  a flat wall board as the backing between the two legs. 
And just picked a wider, thicker piece for the top.
It's cute as ever!

Do you see the black board on the front of it?
I made that out of a plain 1x2 piece of pine. Painted it and added some nails as hooks
so that I could hang stockings and such.

I just love decorating it in my booth at Christmas time!

This is the last one we have tried so far. I love the style. It is a 2 piece.


Do you have any barn wood cabinets in your home or craft booths?

    1. Thank you Christine!
      I've used these shelves and cabinets so often, but oddly I never thought to share a post just for them. :-)
      Thanks again!
