Turning scrap wood into something beautiful with these six salvaged wood projects.
You have to salvaged what you can, even if you’re the one who buried it in the first place. -Kelly Link
Obviously from our site, we are rather fond of salvaged wood… well salvaged anything really.
It is, generally, a low cost or FREE resource (tips on finding below).
In the time we have been in our fixer up home, we have done several salvaged wood projects…like when we revamped this old fireplace:

The Mister made Christmas special with this beauty! Some old and new pieces of wood created this beautiful bench.
WHERE TO FIND SALVAGED WOOD?
Now if you love the look of salvaged wood but aren’t sure where to find some, here are some ideas:
- Keep an eye out in your neighborhood. Does your neighborhood have a bulk trash pickup? Did your neighbors fence blowdown?
- Ask a fence company what they do with the wood from a repair.
- Make a call out on your social media….”Looking for worn wood.”
- Look out for old barns and buildings. Of course, never trespass or take materials that don’t belong to you.
- Pallets or shipping crates can often be used as well.
If you can’t find any, you can check out this post when we did a faux reclaimed wood look for these fence boards.
BONUS TIP – Make sure to dry out and treat for bugs.
We would love to know what you do or are going to do with your salvaged wood. Leave us a comment on your past, current, or future project.
