Building Furniture Out Of Reclaimed Wood
There’s probably no other construction material allowing for more repurposing options than wood. Abundantly offered by Mother Nature, wood never surrenders, but reinvents itself in shapes and new practical purposes, assisted by our imagination and creativity. Below are several examples of furniture made out of reclaimed wood to inspire you in indoor and outdoor design ideas, using old items which will metamorphose into new useful things.
And since it’s fall, let’s start with something which goes hand in hand with the season. An old wine barrel, which still keeps traces of the liquid it contained for so many years, turns into a table which will surely be noticed by your friends. In the living room, the ingenious new furniture piece will not go too far from the purpose it served in the previous life, hosting glasses of wine over the interminable talks with the friends.
If you have an old cupboard about to be thrown away, then give it another chance and turn it into what you see in the images below: a coffee table full of personality, a presence of a distinguished rustic air.
And the final example of a coffee table made out of an old wooden pallet. The now glossy wood and the glass table top become the visual focal point of the room where the table best serves its new purpose.
If you have a patio and a small garden around the house, a lounge chair and other chairs used to idle under the open sky are options hard to ignore. Especially since the new things are easy to craft while the money stays in your pockets.
Wood is a friendly material, full of warmth. Put it by your side when resting and you will feel all these benefits of the nature’s best emissary. A skillfully made headboard will bring extra freshness to the bedroom which will lure you to a long and energizing sleep.
And to leave the omnipresent wood pallets aside for a while, let’s see what we can also build out of wood coming straight from nature. A small tree stump bench, made of three logs, is a useful piece in the entrance hall and kids will definitely love it.
