7. Reclaimed Wood Bookcase
For those who are looking for a new place to store all your favorite books, a reclaimed wood bookcase is a great solution (and let’s face it, keeping those boxes in the attic and the basement is no way to store your books).
8. Reclaimed Wood Wall Paneling
Wood paneling on walls has become extremely popular as both a DIY project and a professional way to finish walls. You might have heard of pallet walls or other similar types of wood wall paneling. While pallet walls are often DIY friendly, reclaimed wood walls, aren’t quite as DIY friendly, but they can be if you’re willing to learn.
9. Reclaimed Wood Ceiling Paneling
Wood ceiling paneling is another great way to add some flare to your home. While this type of wood paneling is more suited for a specific taste, it still adds a lot to a home. You might think of cabins and lake homes as great examples of wood ceilings, but you’d be surprised at how it might add a great flair to your kitchen, living, or dining room within your home. Be sure to take a look at some of the pictures we have of wood ceiling paneling on our website.
Benefits of Choosing Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is more expensive than your standard woods found at Home Depot or Menards. But, having a piece of history in your house that adds value and beauty is truly priceless.
Another benefit of reclaimed wood is that it’s sustainably sourced. You don’t have to worry about your carbon footprint. You’re doing the earth a favor by using reclaimed lumber. Instead of just letting the wood sit and rot on an abandoned or run-down building, it can be transformed into a beautiful wood project for your home.
