Get Inspired by These Great Reclaimed Wood Projects

Reclaimed wood is unique, beautiful and fun to work with. Sometimes it can be challenging for our customers to imagine the possibilities when they see the rustic wood that we sell. We have a great team who can provide you with guidance to complete the project yourself or if you like we can build it for you. Mantles, barn doors, wall covering, frames, shelves, stair treads. It's all possible using the reclaimed wood that we sell. 

We would like to share some of the amazing projects that are possible using reclaimed lumber.

Wall Covering and Custom Barn Wood Doors

Old Grain Co. can wire brush your boards and plane the backs so they are ready for your accent wall. We also do custom work including barn doors.

Rustic Wood Shevles

All that's needed to make these beautiful shelves is a wire brush and some dead flat varnish. Do-it-yourself with instruction from Dave and the team or we can do it for you. Provide us with the specifications for your shelves and we'll have them ready for you in just a few days.

Fireplace Mantels - Square or Rounded Front

Make a statement in your house with a unique fireplace mantel made from a reclaimed beam. We usually have a few mantels finished and in-stock or we can make one custom for your project.

Decorate With Reclaimed Wood Art

This is one of the easiest do-it-yourself reclaimed wood projects. Hang a single panel or make a statment with a grouping of panels.

Coat Rack Made From Corral Board

You can make five or six coat racks from a single corral board. These work great using 1x or 2x material and are perfect to sell at flee markets or as gifts for friends.

We covered an old brick fireplace in the basement bedroom of this Minnetonka home with reclaimed barnwood to give it a more modern and updated look. For this project we took 100+ year old oak 2 x 5's and cut them in half which gave us 1 x 5's.
