And a bit of that tale will linger on in your reclaimed wood cabinets, called forth at such times when you lay eyes on them.

5. Reclaimed Wood and Tables

A tabletop made or consisting of reclaimed wood can add a contemporary, emphatically unique look to your dining room or home office. Marry the wood tones with your décor for a cohesive look that fulfills your expectations – while it leaves your guests in stunned admiration!

6. Reclaimed Wood and Bookcases

However else we may view them, books make excellent 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 pleasing variety is both differentiated and complemented in bookcases of genuine wood, too. And bookcases of reclaimed wood, given their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other markings, are a decidedly distinctive, one-of-a-kind décor item.

7. Reclaimed Wood and Picture Frames

The rustic, natural look of reclaimed wood is wonderfully apt for picture frames. It actually can enhance your favorite artwork and important photos in a most exciting manner.

It can be – and often is – fastened in some way to the bed itself. But a fair number of homeowners nowadays want it fixed to the wall behind their bed. Either way, a headboard created using reclaimed wood planking can be especially gorgeous. It’s natural coloring and imperfections lend themselves to a diverse number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, your design sense can absolutely soar, letting you realize the headboard of your dreams!
