The beauty of reclaimed lumber wooden beams

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

One of my favorite things to look for is reclaimed lumber wooden beams. My mom and dad have a vaulted ceiling in their master bedroom and I think reclaimed lumber wooden beams (faux or real) would look beautiful in their bedroom. My mom kind of agrees. Mom if you are reading this, this post is for you.

“The definition of Reclaimed lumber via wikipedia is wood taken for re-use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses although some companies use wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines and wine barrels. Reclaimed or antique lumber is used primarily for decoration and home building and is often used for siding, architectural details, cabinetry, furniture and flooring.”

I rounded up a bunch of beautiful photographs for my mom as inspiration and thought I would share them here with you. Enjoy and happy pinning!

I love this coffered ceiling below. If our kitchen ceilings were a bit higher, I would love this styled ceiling for our kitchen.

Did you know that there are companies that make faux reclaimed lumber wooden beams to emulate natural reclaimed lumber? We currently do not have any wooden ceiling beams in our home but maybe my parents master bedroom will be the first. How about you, do you have any wooden beams in your home? If you are looking for DIY projects that involve reclaimed lumber, be sure to check out our DIY media console where we salvaged a piece of reclaimed lumber from our local lumber yard and used it as the top for our media console.

  1. We went on a train ride late last year, and there were old wooden railroad ties just scattered about in piles, looking so lonely…oh my GOODNESS if there was a way to get in there and haul them out I would do it in a heartbeat! Old wood makes me so happy! The history…the charm…love it.

  2. You go girl! I love all this inspiration! I think my favorite are those tresses!

    Have an awesome day rock star!

    Our son and his girlfriend live on a 2-acre piece of property that used to be a tree farm. They have 3 separate raised garden areas that are bordered by old railroad ties. When they moved in, nothing was growing in any of them. But I bought a box of wildflower seeds at a garage sale and they planted those in one area, then planted potatoes, tomatoes and herbs in another. Then, because there are lots of cats in the area from other farms, they planted catnip in the 3rd area. Needless to say that’s the most popular spot in the neighborhood!

  4. Gorgeous, gorgeous examples. We had a beamed kitchen in the last house and oh how I miss it!! This gets my wheels turning 😉 Don’t tell my hubby. lol

  5. What is the name of the line that makes the lantern fixtures over the white kitchen island? Thanks!!
