I’m really proud of how well this project turned out. It’s both impressive-looking and... super-functional -- of course!

We started out by putting together a basic frame with four roof-support legs and some two-by-fours.

Next, we had to create our counter top out of barn wood, as well as the lower shelf, which is made from new pine. [We’ve created a few different counter tops this way around the house and they always turn out beautifully. Check out our DIY faux butcher block laundry room counter!]

It’s completely removable so it can be carried into the kitchen easily to refresh the ice supply and then be popped right back in!

      CreekLineHouse .Canada We actually got this from the old barn behind our house that was starting to fall down... So even though the barn is no longer there, we still have a special piece to remember it by!
