A Table Made From a Chicken Coop

Cock-a-doodle-doo! With the expansion of suburbia and the decline in family farms, old barn wood is quickly being turned into ceiling beams, cabinetry, and tables. But what about those odds and ends on the farm with less significant pieces of wood? Peter Vujovich, an eco-friendly designer and builder whose home was featured recently has found some unique ways to reuse the "other" farm scraps. Check out his table made from an old chicken coop!

Peter sanded and refinished the wood to make an even and attractive table. Then he used remnant ore and molded it around the outside. This extra touch adds some class and refinement to the piece, not to mention increased durability as it protects the wood. This piece can fold out to host a large dinner party or a cozy family dinner. We loved the character of each piece of wood telling the tale of its former days all cooped up.
