Reclaimed Wood


    It’s the biggest decorating design trend going right now and prices could not be more reasonable. Call it reclaimed, barn wood, distressed or any number of names, wood is everywhere in design – on feature walls, fireplaces, kitchen islands, headboards, shelving, etc. and it looks fantastic. Don’t believe me? Well, just tune in to HGTV’s “Fixer Upper”, “Property Brother’s”, “Love It or List It”, or you can check out home decorating magazines, the Internet, etc. If you are like most of us, a little help with the creative process never hurt and these places are where you will find great ideas for putting any kind of wood to use in your home. With the creative juices flowing, head out to The Brass Armadillo. It just so happens that they are having a Vintage Decorating and Design Contest in February for Dealers. The dealers will submit their repurposing creations on February 27, 2016. I can’t wait to see their creativity in action. The Brass Armadillo has everything you will need to get started on your own project – barn wood, wood slabs with nail holes, along with other natural “beauty marks”, benches, shelving, picture frames and an assortment of useful items. Being able to reuse any item will make you an environmental standout! Keep in mind The Brass Armadillo has beautiful architectural elements as well to complement your (ahem) ideas!
