Accent chairs and tables capture my attention like nothing else can. Sofa tables, coffee tables, and end tables–I love them all. I am in awe of how a flat surface with 4 legs can transfer a room and be so practical at the same time. Not only that, the options for table personalization are limited only by the imagination.As I previously mentioned, when Mr. R&R made the gorgeous black walnut sofa table, the base was originally made with reclaimed red oak. When he and I put the pieces together we both knew that the reclaimed red oak was too rustic, and too small, for the 5’ smooth black walnut top. I loved the red oak base and wasn’t going to let it go to waste. I turned my eyes to my front entry and had a vision of a rustic entry table (every home in a movie has an entry table and I always wanted one). I made (asked nicely, strongly suggested–take your pick) Mr. R&R climb above the garage door so I could select the piece of 1×12” red barnwood to adorn the red oak base. I selected the piece with the most red coloring across the length of the board. Mr. R&R trimmed the barnwood to create a 4” overhang on each side of the base. The final entry table is cohesive and perfect. The weathered barnwood top perfectly complements the naturally-distressed red oak base. The top does have a poly coat (better to be safe than sorry), but the base is simply Danish oil. I feel like I’m in the movies now with my very own entry table accented with pretties and an old wooden box to collect the mail.
