TOP 5 DIY RECYCLED WOOD FURNITURE & DÉCOR IDEAS
Every renovation project leaves behind building materials and construction waste. Most of these materials, like wood and cardboard, can be recycled or reused.
Here are the Top 5 DIY Wood Furniture and Decor Ideas that will help you repurpose old wood.
#1 - HEADBOARD
If you’re renovating your house, you might end up with an old wood door that has no use in your new layout. Instead, repurpose it to serve as a rustic headboard!
#2 - WINE RACK
A wine rack is easy to build from used or excess wooden panels. The end result is both functional and stylish.
#3 - PLANTER
If you have lots of small wooden panels or leftover trim, you can create your own planter box. Paint it to add a pop of colour!
#4 - BENCH
Add a rustic look to your backyard by building a reclaimed wooden bench. It would look great in a cottage style garden! Check out our blog about different backyard landscaping ideas.
#5 - FARMHOUSE DINING TABLE
A reclaimed wood farmhouse dining table is both beautiful and functional. This classic piece of furniture adds warmth and character to your home. Incorporate benches for un-fussy, child-friendly seating.
By reusing old material, you reduce waste and save the planet’s energy.
