Fire Pit Coffee Table

Finding/getting old fire pits is probably one of the greatest treasures to me. This one came to me a lot easier than last year’s find. (You may recall my running adventure where I found one discarded in the woods and dragged it home. Yeah. Not so involved this time around.)

My sister gave this rusty beauty to me.

I have big plans for the fire pit top, but I decided to first use the base to make a table with some of the wood reclaimed from the Adirondack barn a few weeks back. I’m really digging the industrial look these days. Mixing barn wood with repurposed iron never fails to be a beautiful marriage.

AHHHHH. THIS GRAIN! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Barn wood tends to be brittle, but Waterlox is the perfect solution to not only enhance the beauty of the wood but preserve it at the same time.
