I am currently working on a project where we are using reclaimed wood as a design element. Reclaimed wood is wood that, in another life, was a barn, piece of furniture, flooring or even an old bowling lane. It is removed from its original site and repurposed into something else.
Reclaimed wood is a popular trend. Although it gives a rustic vibe to a space it pairs beautifully with a variety of design styles. Not only does it give character but it is a green way to decorate as you are reusing something that would otherwise be trash. It is also a material that can be used in many different ways.
Take the photo above, the wood serves as a frame for photographs. Other great uses are as headboards, ceiling beams, wall paneling or dining tables. The possibilities are endless. I have rounded up some of my favorite ways to use this great material.

Reclaimed wood works in so many different applications. Whether it is made into a table, paneling or home decor, its uses are endless. As these images also show, it can work in virtually any design style from modern to traditional. Shy of this trend? Use it as a lamp or wall decor you never know where it might lead.
