Reclaimed Wood Wall Shelves with Metal Brackets

Kristy of Kristy Dickerson had been on the hunt for the perfect shelves to hang above the file cabinets in her office. She finally found some at Restoration Hardware she liked, but just adding two shelves and the brackets to her cart drove the total to $800! Yikes! With a trip to Home Depot, Kristy had all the materials she needed to recreate the reclaimed wood and metal shelves. She did an amazing job distressing the boards to give them that old, worn look.

Restoration Hardware Factory Cart Table Knockoff

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After couldn’t have been more elated to receive this amazing factory cart table for her eight year wedding anniversary. Her sweet husband built the entire thing from scratch using reclaimed wood, antique rail cart wheels, and other supplies from the local hardware store. Jennifer says, “I am in LOVE with the way this table turned out and it is the perfect additional to our cottage industrial style family room.”

Reclaimed Wood Shelf

Gretchen of Boxy Colonial needed display shelves for her boys’ bedroom and liked the look of some reclaimed wood shelves from West Elm. However, at $58 for the smallest shelf, it simply wasn’t happening. Instead, Gretchen enlisted her husband and two sons to make these look-a-likes with wood “reclaimed” from the scrap pile. I have a feeling it didn’t take too much persuading to get them to bang up the boards with hammers and screwdrivers {wink}!

Tree Stump Table

Lovers of all things Restoration Hardware, Lidy from Hello Lidy and her husband are always on the lookout for less costly ways to bring the look home. They scored a salvaged tree stump that was headed for the chopping block (literally!) and transformed it into a trendy side table. The total cost for their table came in at $20, which is an amazing price compared to a whopping $695 for their RH inspiration!

Wood and Metal Coffee Table

Debra from Bungalow loved the look of a reclaimed wood and metal coffee table for her living room, but spending a couple thousand dollars on a small table simply wasn’t happening. Instead, Debra purchased some iron from the hardware store and put her husband’s welding skills to work. Even if your husband can’t weld, Debra suggests finding a friend or hiring out the welding to still save a pretty penny from Restoration Hardware’s price tag.

Reclaimed Wood Bench

As a part of her mudroom remodel, Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust built a small bench where her kids could sit and put their shoes on. Being the resourceful gal that she is, Kristen used some old picnic table boards she found in a dumpster for the build. I love Kristen’s criss-cross design and the fact that she built this bench for FREE by using the reclaimed wood! You go, Girl!

Lindsay from Living with Lindsay recently shared a PB-inspired mirror that she made a few years back but still loves today. Now that is the sign of a successful project! Lindsay pieced together cuts of repurposed floor boards around an inexpensive mirror to pull of that designer look for way less dough. Lindsay points out [...Read More]
