What’s old is new again: Incorporating reclaimed wood into your new projects

Here are 10 simple projects you can make using reclaimed wood ...

1. The easiest way to use a piece of reclaimed wood is by screwing it directly into the studs of your wall -- no cutting required. Once it’s up, you can add hooks and turn it into a spot for hanging coats and hats. Or you could hang framed photos on it -- giving your wall a extra layer of texture and dimension.

2. Reclaimed wood tables are one of the hottest pieces of furniture around. Use a clear varnish to seal the wood -- or stain it the shade of your choice -- and fit it over an existing table or build simple legs from steel piping.

3. Open-concept homes are everywhere, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little division between spaces. If you have access to a lot of reclaimed wood, you can build a gorgeous sliding barn door to separate your living room from your dining room.

4. Cut reclaimed wood into narrow strips to make a set of individual bracket-style shelves -- perfect for displaying framed photos, tchotchkes, or antiques.

5. Use thick reclaimed wood boards to make a simple bookcase, using steel piping spray-painted black as the sides of the bookcase.

6. Lucky enough to have a large stash of reclaimed wood? Use it to cover the lower half of a room with panels, giving you a rustic paneled look that’s perfect for a cozy dining room or romantic bedroom.

7. Looking for a simple reclaimed wood project? Nail together a few boards and add decorative hooks for a simple shelf to hang in your entryway.

8. All it takes is a few strips of reclaimed wood to turn a builder-grade mirror into a masterpiece. Cut four pieces to fit around the perimeter of the mirror, and simple screw them directly into the wall around it -- leaving a lip over the edge of the mirror to hide the beveled edge.

9. Reclaimed wood doesn’t always need to be cut into neat boards. Take advantage of a piece that’s rough and uneven, and use it to trim out a piece of furniture -- or as the top of a bar or coffee table.

10. Even a small piece of reclaimed wood can make a big impact in a room. Print out a simple word -- maybe your family’s last name or initial? -- and trace the letters onto the wood. Use a small brush dipped in paint or stain to fill in the letters. You’ve got a personalized work of art that you’ll be proud to hang on the wall.
