8. Moose Head Artwork

It’ll be an interesting addition to your cabin’s wall décor and will look perfect above a fireplace.
9. DIY Pallet Wine Rack
This is a playful design of deconstructed pallet boards sure to add a functional work of art to any home.
10. Entry Table
Put an accessories tray on the table to have an area where you can put your house keys and extra coins. This way, you won’t have to ask anyone where the house keys are.
11. Octagon Mirror Reclaimed Wood Craft
Aside from adding an entry table, you can also place this adorable mirror near your front door. Doesn’t it look exactly like the expensive one you saw in the mall?
12. Wood Wall Reclaimed Wood Craft
13. Mason Jar Chandelier Reclaimed Wood Craft
14. Barn Wood Coffee Table
15. Jewelry Holder Reclaimed Wood Craft
16. Wooden Frame Reclaimed Wood Craft
17. Rustic Wood Lamp
The color of the wood is a good contrast to the colors of midnight blue and white.
18. Sofa Table
The trick to this is using a strip of tape placed around the leg, and then painting your first color. The tape helps serve as a deterrent to prevent you from painting the other part of the table leg.
19. Pallet Wood Chair
Don’t forget to throw on different textures for the pillows to make it look even cozier.
20. Coat Rack
You’ll only need one piece of reclaimed wood to make this coat rack. This design features vintage gate valves as the hooks, and I love how they were painted in vibrant colors. Don’t they just stand out from the coat rack?
21. Candle Holder
Turn leftover wood or old pieces of furniture into DIY reclaimed wood projects. When making this candle holder, remember to leave ample space in between each of the holes. If you follow the guide, you’ll be able to hold 7 candles at once.
22. Dining Table
I adore wooden dining tables because they’re a great background for meal photos. Another thing which makes this farmhouse style dining table special is its metal pipe at the bottom, which serves as a strong base for the table.
23. Oversized Wood Dice Reclaimed Wood Craft
24. Wooden Box
25. DIY Barn Wood Shelves
This set of shelves is made from reclaimed wood, black pipes, iron caps, and floor flanges. Since it has an industrial feel, it’ll make a great accent for a bachelor pad.
26. DIY Wood Crate Shelves
Display anything from these DIY crate shelves and have interesting decor for your chic home. Salvage crates from supply stores, clean and have them stained and voila! Instant statement pieces.
27. Reclaimed Wood Craft Pallet Art Sign
If you’ve always had a thing for Tumblr-like backdrops and quotes, then you’ll be a fan of this DIY reclaimed wood project.
It’s so easy to do! Really, the only challenge with this project is making sure you write as nice as the photos you see online.
28. Reclaimed Wood Craft Wall Art
This wall art makes use of leftover pallet boards arranged in a wavelike pattern. I particularly like how some of the pallet boards were cut shorter to create pockets of shelves within the artwork.
29. DIY Balustrade Farmhouse Coffee Table
A wooden coffee table instantly amps up the rustic feel of a home. A word of caution, when handling wood, be sure to sand the material first. You wouldn’t want to catch any splinters on your fingers.
30. DIY Sliding Barn Door
31. Rustic Headboard
Who knew making a rustic headboard could be so easy? No paintbrush at home to help you stain your rustic headboard?
No worries! Use an old sock to help you spread the stain. It’ll give you more control too.
