And a trace of that narrative will survive in your reclaimed wood cabinets, called forth each time you reach into them.

5. Reclaimed Wood as a Table

A tabletop incorporating or wholly consisting of reclaimed wood can impart a trendy, assuredly different ambiance to your dining room or home office. Partner the subtle, natural hues of reclaimed wood with your décor for a harmonious look that fulfills your expectations – at the same time it blows your guests away!

6. Bookcases of Reclaimed Wood

Aside from the value we assign them otherwise, books make fantastic decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look good on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase. Their agreeable variety is both highlighted and unified in bookcases of genuine wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, because of their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other markings, become a particularly distinctive, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

7. Reclaimed Wood as a Frame

The simple, natural look of reclaimed wood is perfect for picture frames. It actually can enhance your favorite artwork and most cherished photos in a decidedly distinctive manner. What’s just as worth pointing out is that frames of reclaimed wood can be fashioned in a wide range of styles, so they’ll complement nearly any look you’ve established for your home.

8. Reclaimed Wood for a Headboard

Not much can upgrade the look of a bedroom like a skillfully designed and constructed headboard. There’s no single way, of course, to attach a headboard. It can be – and often is – fastened in some way to the bed itself. But a fair number of people these days like to have it attached to the wall behind their bed. Whichever way works best for you, a headboard constructed of reclaimed wood planking can be particularly beautiful. It’s natural coloring and effects of weathering lend themselves to a diverse number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you’ll discover there aren’t any limits on your imagination to to stop you from creating the headboard that dreams are made of!
