23 Easy DIY Wood Projects, DIY Reclaimed Wood Projects

Reclaiming wood has been done since the beginning of time. Today, DIYers have a slight obsession with pallet boards and barn boards, and that’s awesome!

These reclaimed wood pieces are perfect for all kinds of home improvement and DIY projects. From DIY decor to practical use items like storage and shelving, reclaimed wood is carving out a place in all of our homes.

Make it Yourself Wood Projects

I’ve been known to use reclaimed wood for a project or two around the house.

Whenever I see a pallet being tossed out, I scoop it up and pull it apart. In fact, there are six deconstructed pallets in my garage right now. And they are just waiting for me to create something awesome.

Today I’m rounding up some easy wood DIY projects to inspire you.

Iced Tea Station

This was a fun wooden DIY project. Katie and I made this iced tea station from a few pallet boards.

It’s a fun and rustic piece where we store our cups and iced tea stash.

How to Make a Shelf Out of a Wooden Pallet

This is one project I may have to reproduce.

Because this pallet shelf is really cool looking. And I can think of a few ideas to add my own finishing touch to it.

When this blogger got the chance to review this Dremel Tool, she decided to make a shelf – and it came out great!

DIY Wood Dominoes

This blogger found a sack of Jenga blocks at the thrift store for buck and a quarter and couldn’t pass it up.

She’s now addicted to reclaiming Jenga blocks and using them for other purposes, like these Dominoes!

Reclaimed Boat Wood

This is a cute idea for those leftover scrap pieces of wood you have laying around. Because we all have a stack of scrap wood and these sailboats are the perfect project to use them on!

Missing the beach, this blogger decided to bring a piece of the beach (or at least some beachy decor) to her home. See how she did it!

Wood Bench

I built a neat bench from reclaimed wood. We built some stairs and replaced some railings on our deck. We had a pile of leftover wood from the construction.

The contractor said he’d haul it away for $50. I said – leave it!

Then I made a bench with it. I used the scraps and old wood from the deck project to build a pretty cool wood bench.
