By now you know when I say “reclaimed wood” I’m not talking about century old barn wood right? It’s just a fancy name for old fence pickets I found on the side of the road lol. As in this pile of pickets I found on the side of the road:
Okay technically it was in a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood I was yard sale hopping in. See said yard sale in the back ground? “No thanks, I don’t want to buy anything you are selling, but can I have this pile of trash?” Ha ha. This sounds a lot like the story with the wood I used for my All of Me Sign, right? Same scenario…different day ha ha. I actually did buy a tall white dresser from this one to use in my son’s room, haven’t gotten to that project yet.
Of course I did not take the whole pile, in fact I barely made a dent in it, but if I had room to store it I probably would have. People love anything made out of old pieces of wood ya’ll.
What I am sharing today has already sold, and it was so super simple to put together:
Seriously you could use this in any room of the house.
The hardware came from Hobby Lobby, except for the glass knob (which I didn’t use). Did you know Hobby Lobby rotates a lot of their sale items week to week, so knobs are 50% off every other week. So I know if I need several and one 40% off coupon won’t cut it, I’ll just come back the following week and they’ll be on sale. I believe these were around $5 for the three.
I cut the picket to length and then sanded the surface and edges smooth. Then I white washed the surface like I showed here.
I spray painted the hardware in Rustoleum’s Robin’s Egg blue:
(That was a silver wire basket I was spraying for my laundry room.)
When they were dry, I sanded them a bit and then I just screwed them in place and added hanging hardware to the back!
See? So simple!
Love the hardware in this pretty color…
I decided last minute to switch out the glass knob for this pretty one that looks like a clock (also from Hobby Lobby):
Thanks for dropping by, lovely Friends! I love when you visit!! 😀
