DIY Reclaimed Wood Projects for a Rustic Home

Turn leftover wood or old pieces of furniture into DIY reclaimed wood projects! Wood is one of my favorite materials to work with. The possibilities are endless and they give such a homey and cozy feel to any rustic home. My husband, Dave, and I sometimes even go the extra mile and carve our initials on a little spot. It’s our own way of making our DIY project even more personal! Here’s a list of some of our favorite DIY reclaimed wood projects!

Add the beauty of simplicity with this rustic sofa table. If you look closely, you’d see there are two colors on the table’s legs. The trick to this is using a strip of tape placed around the leg, and then painting your first color. The tape helps serve as a deterrent to prevent you from painting the other part of the table leg.
