I want to give this five stars because the people that make these have great customer service, unfortunately the one I received used barn wood that had random drill holes and splits. I'm guessing each one varies widely. I would still order from them tho.
It may take a bit of extra elbow grease, but the end result is undoubtedly worth it. If you need help finding wood to repurpose, head to your local lumber yard or hardware store to look for scraps, which are usually set at a low price. Otherwise, utilize materials you no longer need—think old fence posts or scraps from a past project. Your local lumber store is a great resource.
Mountain home design comes in many shades—from mountain modern to traditional rustic—but the tie that binds these alpine dwellings is their homage to the past. Mountain towns are steeped in history, and incorporated into the interior design of most mountain homes is a thoughtful reminder of the pioneer and mining days of the Old West. From reclaimed wood and farmhouse style to exposed industrial metals and wood-burning fireplaces, a touch of vintage not only adds character but also context to these spaces.
If you have a few old wooden ladders gathering dust in your garage, this next upcycle is a nifty way to repurpose them into extra storage. Decide how many shelves you need and cut between the rungs of the ladder accordingly. This project is a great way to add a fun flash of colour to a bureau without bringing out the paint cans.

Repurposing old items to make something "new" has always been a favorite of ours. Don't throw away that old fence board—transform it into a shelf instead. That old copper window might make a perfect bathroom vanity.
It's amazing what a little sweat equity Have you ever started a project with one outcome in mind only to have it turn out completely My husband just loves it when I bring home furniture to redo.
