Painting a dark stain over wood.

At Vintage Harvest, we love a good DIY project and we are always on the lookout for new trends that you can recreate with our beautiful reclaimed lumber. Since we’re based out of the south, we know that the Barnwood chic look is still on-trend but is continuously evolving. For this fall, we’ve seen darker lumber being a contrast to lighter decor everywhere. Here are a few DIY projects you can recreate with our dark barn wood to make your home a rustic dream. 

Reclaimed Wood Farmhouse Dining Table

Creating dining rooms that are homey and more informal have been very on-trend this year, which is why farmhouse dining tables are the perfect DIY project. This table is ideal for a young couple in their first house or for a family that wants a down-to-earth feel. Dressing up the table with gorgeous china will balance out the formal and informal vibes of your dining room. There are plenty of tutorials online for farmhouse dining tables, check them out for a bit of inspiration. 

Wooden Mail Sorter

Ok, just because we’re in the age of emails does not mean you have to keep neglecting your snail mail on the kitchen counter. Building a wooden mail sorter is the perfect DIY project and an adorable addition to your entryway, your mudroom, or your home office. A mail sorter with mail slots for everyone in the home is such a cute and practical idea. You can also add hooks at the bottom to keep any car or house keys hanging. 

Hide Your Trash Can Cabinet

Trash cans can be so ugly and very annoying to fit under your sink or hide under your kitchen counter. Building a cabinet out of Vintage Harvest reclaimed wood is an excellent project for you and your family. There are tons of tutorials online on how to make this, but the idea is to create a cabinet with a door that tilts out with your trash can attached to it. This is a great way to hide your ugly trash can while having a gorgeous piece of furniture that you can put your plants and picture frames on top of. 

Reclaimed Wooden Bathtub Tray

Bath time is no joke, and making your bath relaxing and luxurious should be a goal for everyone. With Vintage Harvest reclaimed wood, you can create a rustic bath caddy from just a single board of lumber. All you have to do is measure, cut, and attach the leftover wood below the pallet to make the underside slats. There are tons of DIY tutorials you can look at, and you can add your twist, like cutting a slit to hold your wine glass. The possibilities are endless.
