Barnwood is an incredibly popular material to work with and for good reason. As a recycled material, it is something you can feel good about putting to use while upgrading the look and appeal of your home. Here are a few of John’s Lumber reclaimed Barnwood projects you can do all on your own.
#1 – Decorative Shelving
Barnwood shelving is simple to construct and can be completed with standard shelving hardware. What better place for personal mementos?
#2 – Wall Paneling
Reclaimed Barnwood is the perfect material for paneling, which can be repurposed again at a later time if needed. This relatively simple project quickly infuses rustic charm in any room of your house and will inspire a farm like atmosphere.
#3 – Pallet Garden Walkway
Individual pieces of Barnwood can be arranged in a walkway fashion to help guests navigate your land. Unlike stones which commonly sink into the surrounding landscape, a pallet garden walkway is inexpensive and easy to maintain.
#4 – Rustic Bookcase
The natural allure of a rustic bookcase is hard to escape. Since you are crafting it yourself you get to choose how tall and wide it is, and add finishing touches as you please. This is a useful trick for adding book storage in spaces which do not accommodate standard bookcases.
The possibilities when working with Barnwood are limitless. Stop by either of John’s Lumber local store locations in Clinton Township and Shelby Township to pick-up some reclaimed Barnwood for your next project.
