Waste not, want not: Instead of heading to the lumber yard, more and more furniture designers are looking to the past for their materials. This Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Island, $475, from Herb’s Furnishings is one great example. Handcrafted of 100% reclaimed wood from Baltimore, Md., the island’s frame is crafted from old beams, and its shelves are reclaimed pine paneling. The butcher's block top is made of reclaimed hardwood flooring, which is sealed with food-safe mineral oil and beeswax. The island sits on leveling stems to ensure a flat cutting surface, and it includes a steel bar with S hooks for hanging pots and other utensils.
A rustic wood nightstand offers storage on each side of the canopy bed. The distressed nightstands made from reclaimed pine wood shipping pallets include three spacious drawers, with space on top for a potted plant and black table lamps with grey silk drum shades for reading.
Reclaimed timber was used to create a gorgeous backsplash and shelf in this country kitchen. Pine floors and wood plank ceilings pair beautifully with the neutral shade cabinets and countertops. A large gas range makes cooking a breeze for the chef.
This kitchen features an accent wall covered in shiplap, a pine paneling often used in barns and historic homes. Custom reclaimed wood storage baskets decorate the wall, showcasing fresh produce. Blue and oak cabinets, recessed lighten,g and wide plank hardwood floors are used thought the remainder of the space.
This long hallway is a warm welcome to the master bedroom ahead and features three closets for extra storage. The louvered pine doors add the the charm of the pine shiplap walls and reclaimed hemlock wood floors that give it that genuine cottage feel.
White walls, large windows and a vaulted ceiling make this bedroom feel light, breezy and open. Reclaimed heart pine floors offer warmth and contrast. Woven wood shades allow light to filter through while still providing shade and relief from heat.
As seen on season 1 of Tiny Luxury, a reclaimed wood sliding door divides a laundry closet from a luxurious bathroom in this tiny house. Knotty Alder pine trim, tongue and groove siding and rich, red oak hardwood floors give this space a rustic, charming aesthetic.
The front door, crafted from hemlock planks reclaimed from the interior of a 150-year-old home, complements the natural pine flooring and yellow birch panel ceiling in the HGTV Dream Home 2011. A white pendant light illuminates the space while black wood furniture and large accessories anchor the room. A gray floral patterned throw rug greets visitors to the home.
