I surprised my wife with a new piece for our dining room wall made from reclaimed/salvafe pieces.
We just moved into a house (with a 300sqft shop attached!) and did not have much to fill the walls.
We are on a very tight budget so our only option was to make something.
I disapeared into the shop for a few evenings and was able to put this all together for very little $$
It started with 12’ piece of salvage lumber found under a few doors at a local antique store. I used it to make squares.
I then used ebony stain that I had from a project a while ago.
Next I found pipe clamps at a 2nd hand hardware store and furniture tacks to fasten the quilted mason jars onto the board.
And finally I hung them on the wall with small d-rings and added flowers (which will hopefully be transitioned to an indoor herb garden this spring)
