5 Spring DIY Projects Using Reclaimed Wood & Vintage Materials

5 Spring DIY Projects Using Reclaimed Wood & Vintage Materials

It finally feels like real Spring here in Denver, and we’re all excited to get out into nature! If you have a backyard, front yard, or even a patio, you probably already have some DIY projects in mind for the season. Of course, Spring is all about celebrating nature and appreciating the environment, so we prefer to utilize reclaimed wood and salvaged items whenever possible to reduce waste and prevent deforestation. Fortunately, backyard and garden DIY projects practically beg for a rustic, farmhouse aesthetic that can easily be achieved just by working with reclaimed materials whenever possible!

At Salvage Design Center, we’re always fully stocked with reclaimed lumber, vintage doors and windows, antique hardware, and just about anything you need to get started on these projects! We’d love to help you pick out the perfect materials for your DIY project. Visit us at 1200 W. Evans Ave. Denver CO, 80223. We’re open every day!

To get your imagination flowing, here are some of the best ways we’ve seen people make the most of reclaimed wood and vintage materials in their own backyard and garden projects!
