I know reclaimed wood is a big thing these days, and for good reason, right? I mean, hello? It’s gorgeous! But would you take a look at these fun and beautiful reclaimed barn wood pieces that I saw at an antique store on my weekend sans kids? I’m a smitten kitten!
This island had me at hello. Oh my goodness – even though I have absolutely no place for it in my home, I was dreaming about how amazing it would be in someone’s farmhouse kitchen. And I suspect it will be in someone’s kitchen soon, because it was sold – for $975 – quite a deal, if you ask me. What you can’t tell from this photo is that the other side of the island also has open shelving on the opposite corner. Apparently a local woodworker made it and takes special orders…
I’m thinking if this had some open space for a stool, it would be perfect in a craft or sewing room.
Here is another one of his pieces. I love the criss-cross
applesauce design for the table legs and it’s such a solid piece too. Not to mention the color is just beautiful.
And then there are these fun pieces. I just couldn’t stop looking at them – great eye-catching statement pieces that are fun and whimsical all at once. They could be replicated by a DIYer with a different animal or object that fit your decorating style. I have something in mind that I want to try…
They had one that was a turtle that was SO CUTE. Perfect for a kid’s room or a even a bathroom. I thought I had taken a picture of it, but evidently not.
Are you equally smitten with using reclaimed wood in your home in some way, shape or form?

I just mentioned to my husband that I would like him to make a round table for our deck area. The one above would be perfect! I'm lovin' those blue legs.

I love the island! I can just see it loaded with platters of food in a great kitchen at an equally great party!

I AM smitten with reclaimed wood, but you know what I'm obsessing over even more – petrified wood. I want some petrified wood stools SO badly (about $3000 a pop!)

I love reclaimed wood! What is the name of the antique store? I would love to buy one of the signs. Thank you!
