The use of reclaimed barnwood in antique brown tones gives this old barn a stunning finish that you’re sure to enjoy. This reclaimed softwood’s weathered and aged patina adds so much to the charm of this gorgeous barn design. Reclaimed barn wood is becoming increasingly popular for new barn type homes and wood cabin construction projects. Across the country, private contractors and builders have been repurposing wood from old barns, houses, factories, and commercial structures to renovate homes and public places. Reclaimed wood can give charm to any project, whether you’re building a new barn type house or refurbishing a rustic wood cabin.
In a room in your barn style home, you might utilize repurposed barn wood for an accent wall or for the beams. Reclaimed wood is available in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Nothing compares to an authentic piece of salvaged wood; it has its own narrative to tell and a distinct appearance. You have the option of purchasing salvaged wood from a company that sources and finishes it for you, or you may obtain it from local sources and finish it yourself.
There are a few guidelines for using recycled wood, regardless of where it came from. If you use recycled barn wood, it could have been exposed to the elements for up to 100 years. Dirt, dead bugs, and other debris may be present on the salvaged wood. As a result, you’ll have to clean it. Begin by giving the wood a good scrub with a firm nylon bristle brush. This will aid in the removal of any loose dirt. After that, give it a short spray with an air hose to get rid of the finer dirt particles. Some individuals like to use a high-pressure water sprayer to clean the recovered wood, but you must be careful not to damage it.
