A couple weeks ago I brought home a couple planks of salvaged barnwood. Literally, just two, because I was in my car and not the truck. I had a vision of a planked wood top for a salvaged wire metal table base that had made it's way to us, but I didn't want to just run up to Home Depot and purchase new lumber. So when I had the opportunity to snag some true barn wood I jumped at the chance, even if it meant driving home with it crammed from my trunk and resting on my dashb
