Thrifty Thursday.....Recycled Barn Boards

This weeks I wanted to show you something that I am very proud of and that I did myself.  My husband took down a barn and we saved the wood.  I knew that I wanted to do something with it but was not quit sure what. 

Well one Hot June Saturday afternoon it came to me.  Why not put them half way up the wall in the hall.  So I dug out my miter box out went and measured how high I wanted the boards and started to cut.  After I had all the board on the wall I decided to use the trim that was originally used in between the board to cover up the seems as a chair rail.  That took some time.  I had to figure out how to 45 the corners and make them fight right.  Then I trimmed out the doorways to make it all look complete. 

Check it out and tell me what you think.



  1. Wow, great idea. Very awesome looking! Think I might try that somewhere here.

  2. Thanks! It Was pretty easy to do. I like to do things with my hands and when the results look good it's so rewarding!
