If you like a rustic decorating style, there are several ways to accomplish the look. One of these ways is to incorporate reclaimed or salvaged wood into your decor. All of these decorating ideas using salvaged wood will give your space some rustic appeal.
Salvaged wood can be anything from pallets to barn wood or other reclaimed lumber. I found several creative ideas that fit this type of wood seamlessly into the room design for a chic looking rustic decor style.
