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.

Very creative and beautiful idea! Like the use of simple and affordable materials and turning them to beautiful stuff.
