This is a calendar frame I made from some recycled barn siding. I used some conchos from an old belt and my son’s old lariat. The leather is from an old saddle that was broken and I salvaged some pieces of leather from it to use on projects.
This was the first time I didn’t use stain on a project. I thought the colors and natural weathering from the barn siding looked so nice and rustic I didn’t want to change it. So I just used 3 coats of spar urethane in order to give it a little amber hue.

This turned out great. I like how you recycled items, especially on a personal level, to incorporate into this project. Great choice on not staining the old barn wood, natural is best.

Thanks for sharing.
