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)

Very slick idea here. I really like it and im sure my wife would too. I bet you could even have them filled with candle wax for some wall hung candle sconces. Options are almost endless.

Forgot to mention that I made it to match our dining room pendant light that I had made a month earlier (to replace the terrible blue glass ikea light that came with the house)

I didnt want to post it as a standalone project as it was not made of wood….

A neat idea but I hope you put some exhaust holes in the lids to let some of the heat escape. Otherwise, they may be hard on bulbs.
