Do you love reclaimed wood projects as much as we do? Whether it’s a quick and easy pallet project, or a more substantial project using old wood from a barn or a barrel, we just can’t get enough of these gorgeous projects. We’re big fans of reusing and upcycling wherever possible, so when it comes to woodworking, these are the best kind of projects! Get inspired to make one of these today!

As mentioned in the tutorial, this technique can be applied to almost any project, from table tops to headboards, and everything in between.
