Some of the most spectacular DIY projects involved taking an old piece of furniture and giving it a new identity or using something as simple and useless as a pallet and turning it into something functional and amazing. Reclaimed wood furniture is very interesting mostly because it has a history and this makes it charming and unique. Here are a few projects that might give you some inspiration.
As you must already know, wooden pallets are amazing when it comes to DIY projects. They can be used to make just about anything. A simple project would be to use a wooden pallet and to transform it into a wine-rack. Take the bottom of the panel and made a cut across the 3 beams, then add an extra board to the back and one to the bottom. Secure each attachment and give it a nice finish.
With some pieces of wood and some free time you can also change the atmosphere in your bedroom by building a nice headboard. For this project you can use reclaimed wood from a fence or anywhere else you can find it. Building the headboard is easy. You can also add some lights to make it even more beautiful.
With a little creativity you can also come up with lots of other useful ideas for the house. For example, you could make a nice cabinet for your kitchen. You don’t have to make it from scratch. You can use an old cabinet and give it a makeover by adding some panels and details. This way you can make your own custom furniture.
Another creative way of using reclaimed wood would be to make a planter. You can make a simple planter for outdoor use, like a box, without any distinguishable features, or you could make something a little more eye-catching, like the model in the pictures. You would just need some paint and brushes and it can all be done without much effort.
If you’re crafty and ingenious, you can also use reclaimed wood for more than just furniture. For example, you could make some beautiful wall art. You can take a few pieces of wood of different dimensions and out them together to form a panel. Paint each piece a different color and mix and match them as you wish.
