The Artisan Table-Handmade Side Table Made From New Orleans Homes

This craftsman style side table is made from deconstructed New Orleans homes damaged during Hurricane Katrina. The painted table tops are original layers of white wash paint. These planks of wood were the siding of an early shotgun house here in New Orleans. The home was damaged beyond repair after Hurricane Katrina and had to be torn down.

In New Orleans this type of wood is called barge board. Its history dates back to 1803 after the United States purchased Louisiana and New Orleans. After the purchase, Americans along the East Coast began to steadily migrate in to New Orleans. They built barges and floated them down river. Once here, they took apart their barges and used the wood to build their new homes. The wood used in this table dates back nearly 200 years ago and has the scars and charm to show its age.

This table measures 32 wide" by 18" deep by 29" high. Each table is hand made to order and can be customized to your specific size. It comes as shown with a removable bottom shelf.
