Reclaimed Wood for Tables Tabletops partially or completely made of reclaimed wood can impart a trendy, totally novel touch to your dining room or home office.

Using Reclaimed Wood for Bookcases No matter what other things we might find attractive about them, books make great decorative pieces.

And bookcases of reclaimed wood, given their natural colors, knots, holes, scratches, and other traits, prove to be a decidedly distinctive, one-of-a-kind décor item. 7.
