Old Hickory Furniture uses reclaimed planks of wood from dilapidated old barns torn down across the Midwest, for the premium Aged Barnwood finish. The rustic barnwood still has much of the character that was etched into it from the years of exposure to the elements. It is common to see nail holes, worm holes, mineral streaks, and beautiful patina throughout the pieces. Aged Barnwood is surfaced and sanded smooth. Any stain can be applied, but the lighter the finish the more character will show through. Aged Barnwood is covered with a high quality protective finish to ensure many years of use. Bark edge trim is standard on all aged barnwood furniture.
