– is a gold mine of decorating possibilities.
As Canadians, we’ve seen a lot of ramshackle barns in our lifetime. Although we’d love to see them all restored, we know that’s not realistic and we’re pleased that when they do get demolished, some people are making good use of the remains.
You can use recycled or reclaimed barn boards to decorate a wide range of spaces in your home. You can use barn boards in a decorative fashion for almost any project where a normal board is used, including shelves, craft projects and other decorative pieces.
Whether you’re going green or you just like the rustic look, scroll down to see some inspiration of great barn board uses:
Add a touch of warmth to your floors by installing old barn boards on the space instead of old-fashioned hardwood. Rough barn boards offer a weathered quality for a rustic look
If you love your floors just the way they are, use your barn wood to cover the walls. You can use barn board the same way you do plank panelling or wainscoting to cover a wall.
