DIY Rustic Chic Industrial Bartsool Desk

 HI Friends!

Happy Thursday!

Do you ever have a project that just comes together seamlessly?

Every ONCE in a while it happens for me & when it does I get giddy inside.

So here is a little back story…..

My family room is a large space that is used for many purposes,

a desk is something I had wanted to make/build for this room for a while.

I had  something all together different in mind but as I went for a run one morning I saw

a pair of metal barstools and remembered THIS post from one of my favorite furniture bloggers.

Then a few days later I found a beautifully worn, large shutter door that was original to a beach house from the 1930′s at THIS shop.

Apparently it had been hidden in the attic for the last 60 years.

I love when things I create have a story,

pretty darn cool!

So I had my essentials & this is what I came up with……

I had a cream color in mind for the frame but as I added the undercoat of stain I found that I really liked it:).

So I added a few more layers of different stains to give that rustic look.

I love how it turned out & it fits perfectly in our family room:).
