How To: Make an Awesome Wall Treatment with Reclaimed Wood

By: Megallancole Nov 04, 2010

In today's video I show you how to do your own Reclaimed Wood Wall. This is a project I have been wanting to do for months and am so thrilled with the result. My husband and I were first inspired by The Antonio Treatment, an HGTV show starring a laid back kinda punk rock/metal dude who does everything green and features his dog Chewie a lot. We dig him. Antonio does BIG heavy hauls and revamps and shows glimpses into the projects, without doing big DIY tutorials. So I thought it'd be cool to take the reclaimed wall idea and break it down for you.

If all of this talk of fall entertaining drives you to drink, never fear, that's all you really need to be a great host. Building a stylish & chic bar can be your biggest asset during the cold and cozy seasons. Nothing welcomes someone into your home more than a freshly-poured drink on the rocks in a classic highball glass.

I've assembled most of our barware from Etsy. Vintage highballs, drinks carts and ice buckets that would fit nicely in Don Draper's office create an air of elegance we're sorely missing these days. I say we bring the classic five o'clock cocktail hour back with… Continue Reading
