We removed the roof off an old chicken house in the heart of South Carolina. 100+ year old heart pine was the treasure we were able to use! Had to buy the 4x4's but we were able to use the old pine for the rest. Use natural oil stain on the heart pine and had Sherwin Williams do a custom stain to match the new 4x4 posts. Plus 2 coats of polyacrylic and sanded with extremely fine paper after stain and both coats for a wonderfully smooth finish.
And then attached our son's sidecar cosleeper back to the bed) that's what is over to the side.
