    5 Reclaimed Wood Projects for a DIY Home

    Using reclaimed wood in your DIY projects is a great way to add character to your home and keep the cost down. We've picked some of our favourite projects from Hester Van Overbeek's newest book, Made with Salvaged Wood, to give you some DIY upcycling inspiration.

     

    1. DISPLAY - Plants stands

    Made with Salvaged Wood

    Every house needs indoor plants—not only are they good for the air quality, but they also add a welcoming touch to your living room. These two plant stands are great for grouping plants together. You could fill your stands with pots of pussy willow, aloe vera, succulents, and sansevieria, but you can fill the stands with flower vases or magazines as well. Made from a wooden box and a broom handle, this is such a simple project and very quick to complete.

     

    2. STORAGE - Mug Storage

    Made with Salvaged Wood

    This mug storage used to be an old cupboard door, but by giving it some picture hangers and hammering in some large nails, it is transformed into very handy kitchen storage. It’s the ideal place to hang your mugs, spoons, and pans, and super easy to make. You can also make one for your craft room or workshop and hang your paintbrushes or tools from the nails.

     

    3. FURNITURE - Slab Coffee Table

    Made with Salvaged Wood

    This side table is so easy to make and will introduce some rustic charm to your living space. All you need is a thick tree slice and four legs. The hairpin legs used here are 8 inches (20cm) high—the perfect height next to a comfy chair. These legs are an untreated metal, but you can buy these legs spray painted in a range of colors if you prefer a bright color pop. The tree slice that makes the top of the table needs to be dried correctly and treated against bugs. You can buy these slabs from a garden center or farm store.

     

    4. DECORATION - Decorative Houses

    Made with Salvaged Wood

    Sometimes you have scrap pieces of wood that are too small to reuse in other projects, but also too big to throw away. Why not turn them into these decorative houses? Painted in a range of toning colors, they will look great on your windowsill, mantelpiece, or bookshelf. Keep making these houses with leftovers from other building jobs and you can create a whole city! Make the houses even more versatile and turn them into candlesticks by adding a small piece of copper pipe to the roof.

     

    5. OUTDOORS - Outdoor Bookcase

    Made with Salvaged Wood

    This bookcase is super easy to build from a few old floorboards. If you have a patio garden, it’s nice to introduce a few pieces of furniture to turn your space into an outdoor room. This bookcase will not only hold pots of herbs but also drinks and snacks for your barbecue parties.

    Modern Country Bedroom - Get the Look

    We love this bedroom, mixing country with industrial to create a really modern and simplistic design. In fact, we love it so much we thought we’d share how you can create the look yourself…

    space works

     

    made.com iron bed frame

    Iron bed frame

    Vintage and reclaimed pieces are often a key part of a contemporary take on country style. An iron bed frame is a great central piece to set the tone of the room and acts as a decorative and a functional piece of furniture. To be really on trend we've gone for this copper frame from MADE.com.

     

    linen duvet cover

    Linen bedding

    Treat yourself to some luxurious linen bedding to add some soft touches to your bedroom that will make it feel cosy and welcoming. We thought as we were treating ourselves we would go with these gorgeous sets from Linenme.com.

     

    coat hook la roudete

    Vintage wooden coat pegs

    You can easily find a set of wooden coat pegs online to suit your style. You could hang up your coats, scarves or even a favourite dress or shirt as a practical decoration. These ones from LaRedoute.co.uk have the wire loop hooks to match the ones in the picture.

     

    hanging posters

    Vintage hanging posters

    These hanging posters are great as you can pick a poster of something that reflects you personality to make your bedroom unique to you. At Cavallini you can even get a hanging poster kit so you can choose your own pictures to go up on your wall in a vintage style.

     

    copper desk lamp

    Bedside lamp

    Again, there are lots of styles of industrial lamps to choose from. We like these copper ones from notonthehighstreet. You could even try and match your lamp to your bed frame.

     

    crocheted throw

    Crocheted throw

    A simple crocheted throw will help to keep the balance between industrial and modern country. We love this one from paleandinteresting as it goes so well with the blue sheets.

    Get the look - Simple Home

    If you have an office or a work-space at home, it needs to be a room you look forward to being in if you are ever going to motivate yourself to go and sit at that desk and get on with that task in hand!

    So this week for our look-book we’ve picked a rustic style office that uses lots of reclaimed furniture to give it that old vintage vibe and shown you how you can get the look with a few key pieces.

    Study simple home

     

    reclaimed writing desk loaf

    Desk

    The desk in this picture has actually been made using old ware-boards but if you’re not so handy with the hammer and nails, you can find lots of reclaimed wooden desks to buy without having to make it yourself. We like this one from Loaf as it is still quite delicate and so won’t overpower a smaller office space.

     

    work_in_progress_trolley baileys

    Storage Trolley

    Storage space is key to help keep you organised and de-cluttered, but it also doesn’t have to be boring! These trolleys from Baileys Home are a quirky way to keep all your files, or tools in order, plus you can move it around so that whatever you need is always in arms reach.

     

     

    display cabinet display cabinet

    Display Cabinet

    Some more quirky storage ideas with these old display cabinets. We like the symmetry they bring sitting on either side of the desk in this study, but you could always go for something bigger if space allows. If you want to stick with the mismatched smaller style we found two designs on Wayfair that we think will do the trick.

     

    globeglobe2

    Globe

    What accessory says study more than a globe?! Whatever kind of interior style you prefer check out justglobes.co.uk. You could go a traditional design like the ones in the picture or something more antique.

     

    industrial office chair

    Chair

    Although all the furniture is different in this room, the fact that it is all of a reclaimed style means that it matches in a sort of mismatched way! We’ve picked something with a little more support from Maisons Du Monde, as it is important to be comfortable if you’re going to be sitting and working in it all day.

     

    cage desk lamp

    Lamp

    For those late nights in the office, a cosy desk lamp is what you need. We went for something in-keeping with the industrial vibe and chose this cage table lamp from Mullan Lighting Designs.

    Get the look - Space Works

    Having kids might mean more stuff and more mess, but it also means more fun and definitely not lack of style! This week we're looking at a fun and colourful kitchen from Space Works and picking a few key items you can get to make your own kitchen stylish and family friendly.

    Space Works kitchen lookbook

     

    personalised letters

    Personalised Fabric Letters

    Let’s start with the personalised fabric letters. We love these! They will add some fun and colour to any room. You could go for a kitchen inspired word like the one in the picture, or initials of your family, it’s up to you. And with Laura's Love Letters on Etsy, you can even pick which fabric you want.

     

    Bar stool ikea

    Foldable Bar Stools

    A breakfast bar is great for family kitchens and these stools from IKEA are practical and won’t break the bank. Kids can have their breakfast or do their homework while the adults can cook dinner and still keep and eye on them.

     

    mixing bowls

    Colourful Kitchen Equipment

    Get the kids involved with the cooking with some colourful kitchen equipment. It’ll brighten up you kitchen, plus if you go for plastic you won’t be worried about anything breaking. We love this rainbow plastic mixing bowl set from Vremi.

    egg cup

    We also love these quirky egg cups from House of Fraser. Perfect for a fun and healthy breakfast.

     

    bunting

    Bunting

    Bunting isn’t just for parties! It can add colour and fun to your kitchen without taking away from you style. There are loads of bunting styles and patterns to choose from, but we like this floral pattered one from dotcomgiftshop.com.

     

    storage tins

    Funky Storage Tins

    If you’re short on space, invest in some really nice storage tins. They’re extra space and they’ll look nice on the kitchen counter. You could keep all the kid's baking in them, or after school snacks and treats they can help themselves to. There's so many to choose from, but we've gone for this very cute set from John Lewis.

     

    Pendant-Lamp-Magna-Eco-White

    Pendant Lamp

    This pendant lamp from lampandlight.co.uk is the perfect accessory to keep your kitchen feeling grown-up, with no worries of it breaking or getting covered in sticky fingerprints!

    Get the look - Life Unstyled

    Do you love the modern bohemian look? Here's how you can easily recreate this boho living room with just a few key accessories...

    Life Unstyled

     

    patterned boho blanket

    Patterned throws and and pom-pom blankets

    No need for an expensive new sofa; create the boho look with patterned throws and blankets and don't be afraid to mix a range of colours and styles. We love the selection of patterns and colours on Zazzle.co.uk as well as the range of pom-pom blankets on bohemiadesign.co.uk.

     

      sequin cushion   tassle cushion

    Cushions

    Again for the cushions, don't be afraid to mix and match all kinds of colours and styles. From left to right we've gone for a stylish geometric pattern from cultfurniture.com, a patchwork sequin from namaste-uk.com and a funky tasseled one from Wolf and Badger. The best thing about this is you can pick your favourite colours and patterns to make the room feel unique to you.

     

    macrame wall hanging

    Macrame Wall Hanging

    There are lots of lovely macrame wall hangings available to buy online, we particularly like this one from Urban Outfitters. Or, if you're a keen crafter, then you could easily make one of these yourself, in fact we have a free project on our blog on MAKEetc.

     

    moroccan ceiling lantern

    Moroccan Ceiling Lantern

    We love this Moroccan inspired ceiling lantern from moroccanbazaar.com to immediately give that boho vibe in any room.

     

    wall hanging planters

    Wall Hanging Planters

    If you're short on space then these hanging planters are a great way to add a bit of greenery into your room to give it that little lift. You could hang these ones from maisonsdumonde.com from the wall or the ceiling and plant them with ferns or succulents.

     

    triangle mirror

    Triangle Mirror

    Keeping on trend with the geometric shapes, we think this triangle mirror from Lisa Angel is perfect to complete that bohemian look. We also love the fact that it doubles as a mini shelf!

     

    If you like the look, check out Life Unstyled by Emily Henson for more interior inspiration.

    Get the look - Pale and Interesting

    Do you ever see interiors that you love, but struggle to replicate them in your own home? We thought we would help with some interior lookbooks from a few of the gorgeous shots we have from our lovely interiors range. This week is a vintage style living room from our new title Pale & Interesting

    Pale and Interesting

     

    Vintage trunk

    Wooden Storage Chest

    Whilst you might struggle to find an exact replica of this great wooden trunk that is being used as a quirky coffee table in this living room, there are plenty of designs and options out there to choose from. We love this reclaimed and recycled teak wood chest from Paraphernalia.com Not only does it look great but it doubles up as extra storage space!

     

    Vintage IKEA rug

     Vintage Rug

    While you could spend a lot of money on a vintage rug like the one in this picture, we think that this much cheaper IKEA version would look just as great!

     

    floral cushions

     Vintage Floral Cushions

    Cushions are a relatively cheap way to add some style into a living room without having to do any decorating! You can choose from a range of these floral cushions on the Pale & Interesting online store.

     

    standing light

     Standing Light

    The metal standing lamp in this room keeps it feeling modern with a touch of the industrial vibe. You can find a gorgeous version of your own on the Pale & Interesting online store.

     

    vintage cieling tiles

     Vintage Tin Ceiling Tiles

    The urban vibe continues with the tin ceiling tiles that have been used as a wall display. We love this idea and it’s easy to replicate in your own home. You could choose from a whole range of patterns and colours at tinceilingtiles.co.uk
