Reclaimed Wood Project: DIY Wooden Arrows

Wednesday, April 9, 2014


Reclaimed wood... it's ahhh-mazing!

The weathering, the tones, the character of it all...

Gawgeous

...and in my case, FREE!

My grandmomma has an old torn down building on her property, and after asking for permission to get my hands on some, I loaded up! I mean, FREE WOOD people! C'mon... can't pass that up.

------------------------------

My living room was in desperate need of some warmth and I was tired of staring at bare walls.


A little before shot...

Now, I have plans upon plans for this room...chances are if you spot an area that seems like it's missing something, I've already got plans for it.

But that little spot of wall between the armoire and the back patio door, well I hadn't come up with an idea that I was in love with. Yet.

Until I thought of the arrows. I had seen them done in all different shapes, sizes, styles... and all super adorable.

And I LOVE arrows.

They are simple and charming... and just make me happy :)



This project was ridiculously easy. It took us only around an hour to complete, from start to finish.

I love projects like that!


It adds an extra element of interest to this room!


Aren't those different tones just breathtaking? Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)


If you want to add interest, warmth and texture to any room... these babies will definitely do it!

    Whether your current project is new construction or a remodeled space, items from Rustiques can give you that one-of-a-kind architectural feel. Rustiques is going through the meticulous process of carefully dismantling each treasured piece of the West Point Stevens Mill. Construction of the original section of the mill was supported by 25? pine beams have a 3? x 6? sub-flooring and face nailed maple hardwood floors. The materials are milled from support beams measuring 10?x 18 1/2?x 25? and sub-flooring beams. We are reclaiming the beams, flooring and other miscellaneous antique items which are all offered for sale to the public. Reclaimed wood can be delivered to Atlanta, GA, Charleston, SC and all major cities in between.

  38. I am planning on making this, this weekend! I scored some FREE old wood and I'm ready to start! I know I can make the arrows to fit my space but can you tell me what the angle is that you used for the point? Is it a 45 degree cut to make the point of the arrow? Thanks!!!!
