How To Add Reclaimed Wood Ideas In Your Home

The Design Plan
I added reclaimed wooden beams in the ceiling in the living room, over my fireplace and kitchen hood. The reeclaimed wooden beams are so dramatic when incorporated in your home. The reclaimed beams were from the dismantling of a structure built around the turn of the century in Georgia. . Since my entire houses is painted white including the ceilings the beams really made the white walls and ceiling pop.
Places Where The Wood Was Installed
- Wood Beams
It was so amazing to watch how they install these large and heavy timbers in my home here is a beam that was lifted with a hydraulic lift and positioned with large bolts and screwed into the beam to keep in place. There are going to be 4 large beams in the family room area and 4 small beams in the foyer area ceiling.
2. Fireplace Mantel
The mantel is the same beam. They just cut it up to fit in that space.
3. Oven Vent.
The oven vent will have smaller beams wrapped around the bottom of the vent.
4. Barnwood Ceiling
My builder found the barn wood through a dealer that specialized in barn wood. Here the carpenters have incorporated it on my ceiling in the master bedroom. The barn-wood ceiling was installed with flat long planks that were painted with a technique called whitewashing. Textured and aged look of the wood is so beautiful and I can’t stop looking at it. The beauty of barn wood is that no two planks are alike
I wanted a rich wood that was not too dark and rough sawn. There is tons of character in the grain. The barn wood came from a barn also located in Georgia.
4. Sliding Reclaimed Wood Barn doors
The barn door were made from reclaimed wood from an old barn. We added them in the pantry and upstair bedroom.
5. Reclaimed Bedroom Entry Door
The builder got creative and surprised us with a door that was made from a barn wood.
6. Reclaimed Flooring:
I added reclaimed flooring upstairs in all the bedroom and hallway. Downstairs the flooring was concrete. More info on that process.
7. Shelving in Pantry
In the pantry we added barn wood planks for shelving. Plumbing brackets were use to hold up the shelving. Here is a link to add shelving in your pantry.
I am so excited with the the results of everything. As you can see you don’t need much reclaimed wood to make a beautiful impact on your decor.
