Reclaimed Wood Projects

We are trying to decide on a new dining table for the beach house. While we've been making do with a big oval Queen Anne table, from our old Queen Anne bungalow, it doesn't really "fit" in a contemporary rustic beach house. Don't worry,  we won't throw it into a landfill -- we will donate it to a local charity shop when we replace it. We are considering having something custom made from reclaimed wood.

 Do you just love all the gorgeous things folks are making from reclaimed wood?

This simple shelving unit, from Relic Interiors is just beautiful.  I love that patina!

How about a picture frame made from colorful strips of reclaimed wood?  So cheerful!

I love the beachy feel of this mirror frame.

This Etsy artist makes gorgeous starburst mirrors from architectural salvage. LOVE.

This conference table is killing me -- in a good way.

If you like DIY, here is a tutorial for this amazing headboard.

The headboard has an industrial vibe going on -- really fun!

How about making a lamp from from a scrap of reclaimed lumber?

Both the island surface and the floor in this kitchen are from reclaimed wood. Gorgeous!

How fun is this ceiling made from reclaimed flooring!

I love it when reclaimed wood is incorporated into a kitchen design!

How do you feel about using reclaimed wood in your home?  Love it? Hate it? Can't live without it? I'd love to hear what you think!


  1. Yes, I love reclaimed wood in a house! We built a barn house a few years ago when we dismantled an old barn on our property and have used some of the wood in our barn house project. I particularly love the ceilings which are reclaimed wood painted white reminiscent of a dairy milking parlor (my husband grew up on a dairy). Also, have you seen this table at I'm rather partial to is as my husband builds them from reclaimed fence railing taken from a ranch in Central Washington State. I love the contemporary look of the sculpted steel legs against the wood table top. Thought you might enjoy seeing another reclaimed wood table!

    1. Susan, wow! That table is stunning! Thank you for sharing it!

    2. Susan - the table is Beautiful! So glad I took a moment to look!


We love to hear what you think!
