Reclaim wood anyone?

Reclaim wood anyone??


Reclaimed wood anyone?? Have you noticed just how popular reclaimed wood has become, or that matter of fact, anything recycled? Nowadays, it's all about being "Green." I love the look brings an organic feel to any space.

There are more and more places they are selling their version of reclaimed wood. So finding it has become much easier.

There are many ways to incorporate reclaimed wood into any design. Here are some examples.

Use it on a kitchen island.
As an accent wall

On a barn door.

Or as a false beam.

As you can see, there are many uses for reclaimed wood. All you need to do is decide where you want to use it. Less is more when it comes to reclaimed wood, as it may make the room appear dark or "heavy."

What's old is new again

What's old is new again.



What's old is new again. As I mentioned in my last posting, "Green" has become very popular. Going green not only saves the planet, but it also eliminates a lot of waste in the landfill. Bedside, they don't make furniture like they use to, and let's face it the old "stuff" is so much better.

When I meet with my clients, there have been many times when they are consider getting rid of old furniture. But if I feel the furniture has potential, I enough recommend they reuse or repurpose it and give it a new life. They are often surprised by my recommendation. I explain to them that adding unique and antique pieces adds so much character to any space.

I love some of these examples of how furniture has been refinished. Some have been completely changed!!



What better way than to reuse what you already have? But if you need to buy items, check out antique stores or salvage yards. They have great finds.

So the next time you think about throwing away an old piece of furniture, take a moment and think. Can this be saved? Not only will it save you money and be "Green" but it will give you bragging rights, which is always nice.
