Old barn. Moooo! We found Tony Garcia and Barntiques a number of years ago at the Chelsea Flea Market, where he continues to sell his barn wood tables. He has become a great resource for us!
Handmade and hand waxed, Tony will make you anything you want out of reclaimed barn wood. He specializes in farm tables and heavy wood pieces that resemble a cross between the Shaker and Arts & Crafts styles, and advertises tables, beds, cabinets, dressers and bookcases. We have bought tables and cabinets from him, and had him custom build an media unit to fit into a small apartment. His workshop is in Pennsylvania, and he comes in each week to deliver furniture and sell his wares at the Chelsea Flea Market (Sat & Sun). You can check him out in person here.
Prices are reasonable, and depend on the amount of detail in a piece. Small hall tables go for $175 and bigger tables go for $150 a foot ($1,000 for an 8 foot dining table). For custom pieces, Tony is very straightforward and will tell you the price on the phone after seeing a picture or fax of what you want. MGR
