reclaimed wood shelves: my top 5 choices

D and I LOVE reclaimed wood. Like, L.O.V.E the stuff big-time. If I could, I would have as many pieces as possible in our home made from the stuff. But it can be pricy unless you salvage the wood and build the item yourself. Well, here is where I had another lightbulb moment! I’m the daughter of a carpenter and I’m sure SOME of his master skills rubbed off on me. We shall see…

I’m starting with Reclaimed Wood Shelves for our office and seeing where I can go from there. We have a blank wall space behind my desk as seen here:

Looking at this photo makes me cringe. I am so excited for you all to see the final project once it is finished (it’s taking me a little longer then expected).
