Default Old Barn Wood Cabinets

Great looking job, very nice work.

I have numerous old barns here in iowa available for the wood. Maybe I should start getting it and selling it to pay for my gun habit??

Great job on using the old lumber. Fits right into a loading room.

bet a lot of people would let you have the wood and tin just to have it torn down and out of the way. i have seen people decorate the inside and outside of their homes with reclaimed wood and tin. i kind of like that type of look myself. there could be some good money in it.

very impressive! i like the old wood look. you did a very nice job with the cabinets.
