However else we may view them, books make fantastic decorative pieces. Leather, vinyl, buckram, or paperbound books and those with colorful dust jackets look especially pleasing on a coffee or end table, on a bookshelf, or in a large bookcase.

And bookcases of reclaimed wood, with their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other traits, become a singularly attention-getting, one-of-a-kind furnishing.

8. Headboards of Reclaimed Wood

Whichever way works best for you, a headboard adapted from reclaimed wood planking can be undeniably breathtaking. It’s natural coloring and effects of weathering make it work for a diverse number of styles, from antique to modern. With reclaimed wood, you can set your artistic talent free to create the headboard you’ve dreamed about!
