5 Creative Reclaimed Wood Projects To Liven Up Your Home

Pay enough attention to the news or spend time on the internet and you will encounter a running theme, environmental conservation. 

More and more people are becoming environmentally conscious which means the way we use and consume products is slowly changing. Entrepreneurs, as well as manufacturers of household products, are making a push to use products that cut down on resources.

This, of course, is a good thing because it not only helps the environment but it teaches us to be creative and resourceful with what we have.

Rather than throw something away goods, why not repurpose them into something else? Sure, this doesn’t work with all products like electronics, plastics, or tubes of toothpaste but it does with other items like fabric and wood.

Do you happen to have a bunch of mason jars you aren’t using? Turn them into storage containers to be used in a sewing room to hold buttons, pins, zippers, or other small loose items. Maybe you have a woodworking or metal shop and need somewhere to hold your screws, nut, bolts, etc.

You get the idea.

Now, let’s get into the 5 Creative Reclaimed Wood Projects  To Liven Up Your Home.

These 5 reclaimed wood projects were meticulously curated to give you an idea of what is possible with reclaimed wood and how you can use Robin Wood Wax to really make them stand out.

Using reclaimed pallet wood is very popular but an alternative growing in popularity is barn wood.

Much like the hallway table above, these shelves use barn wood and piping to achieve a rustic look.
