Country Chic Interior Design for Fabrication

The country charm of the rolling blue ridge hills opens in to a delightfully designed 19th century farmhouse.  The reclaimed barnwood used for paneling has dated period newspaper adhered to the finish for an authentic dated feel.  Gepetto Craftsmen finished the kitchen counters with solid walnut counter tops, contrasting with bright white finish on the cabinetry.  Joining the small kitchen space to the dining room is a custom butcher block style countertop.  We crafted a solid wood live or raw edge dining table with three inch thick hardwood top.   Solid wood counter tops in the bathroom and other antique chic features unify the rooms throughout the house.

Reclaimed Barnwood for Wall Paneling

You’ll notice the wall paneling in many rooms was speckled with period newspapers which we found while cleaning out the walls.  To build the legend of the house, as well as period color to the walls we ripped and pasted sections into the old boards as we sealed them for final install.  The pant chips are authentic and the final patina a priceless touch that both unifies the rooms while adding unique details that are worth bending over to read.  If you are designing a country house look and feel contact us to discuss techniques to build the story, legend and look in your finished project.

We have brought the unique texture and feel of reclaimed wood installations to office space construction, creative restaurant building, hospitality spaces in hotels, and rustic bar fabrication.  If you have a barn on your property you would like to convert it to furnishings for your kitchen cabinets, tables, wall coverings or any other design elements for your new construction drop us a note to start your project.

Project Spotlight: Reclaimed Barn turned kitchen, cabinets, and shelves

Project Spotlight: Reclaimed Barn turned kitchen, cabinets, and shelves

A client had a piece of property just West of Richmond, Virginia which housed an old barn dated 1741.  Gepetto Millworks was commissioned to take the wood from the barn to build a kitchen, and custom built-in shelving and seating for the farmhouse that they were renovating on the same property.  All of the wood was reclaimed and processed in Gepetto’s shop.


A panel was applied to the Sub Zero refrigerator as well was the cabinet door panels made up of the siding boards. The texture resembled lead pellets and wind deterioration of  the barn siding.  The character was  perfect addition to the distinguished clients’ farmhouse.


The island legs were turned from the original structural support of the barn.
