Reclaiming wood has been done since the beginning of time. Today, DIYers have a slight obsession with pallet boards an barn boards. These reclaimed wood pieces are perfect for all kinds of home improvement and DIY projects. From DIY decor to practical use items like storage and shelving, reclaimed wood is carving out a place in all of our homes.
Reclaimed Wood & Pallet Wood DIY Projects
I’ve been known to use reclaimed wood for a project or two around the house. When ever I see a pallet being tossed out, I scoop it up and pull it apart. There are six deconstructed pallets in my garage right now, just waiting for me to create something awesome.
Today I’m rounding up some projects from my own blog and projects from around the web. Leave me a comment and tell me which project is your favorite and which one you’re going to build with your reclaimed wood.
Pallet Wood Iced Tea Station
This was a fun reclaimed wood project. Katie and I made this iced tea station from a few pallet boards. It’s a fun and rustic piece where we store our cups and iced tea stash.
Jenga Block Thrift Store Find = DIY Dominoes
This blogger found a sack of Jenga blocks at the thrift store for buck and a quarter and couldn’t pass it up. She’s now addicted to reclaiming Jenga blocks and using them for other purposes, like these Dominoes!
Pallet and Burlap Picture Display
Who knew a few pallet boards and some burlap ribbon would make such a cool picture display? This blogger had a pile of pallets she collected and needed to do something with, but this is unexpected!
Wood Sailboat from Reclaimed Wood
This is a cute idea for those left over scrap pieces of wood you have laying around. We all have a stack of scrap wood and these sailboats are the perfect project to use them on! Missing the beach, this blogger decided to bring a piece of the beach (or at least some beachy decor) to her home. See how she did it!
Reclaimed Wood Bench
I built a neat bench from reclaimed wood. We built some stairs and replaced some railings on our deck. We had a pile of left over wood from the construction. The contractor said he’d haul it away for $50. I said – leave it! Then I made a bench with it. I used the scraps and old wood from the deck project to build a pretty cool wood bench.
DIY Reclaimed Pallet Shelf
This is one project I may have to reproduce. This pallet shelf is really cool looking, and I can think of a few ideas to add my own finishing touch to it. When this blogger got the chance to review this Dremel Tool, she decided to make a shelf – and it came out great!
Pallet Wood Raised Garden Beds
Grow your own in these raised garden beds. Costing just a few bucks, this blogger turned unused space into a gardening mecca. For just $10 they built six garden beds and filled them, too!
Squirt Gun Organization Station
Keeping those squirt guns organized and put away is always a challenge — until now. Make it fun to put the water guns away with this water gun DIY storage unit made from reclaimed pallet wood. Add a pool noodle and you’ve got a fun pallet project to help keep the squirt guns from being destroyed by the lawn mower!
