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.

This is definitely a two person job (at least in my case), so thanks to my rockstar husband Will for helping make it happen. Now that the wall is complete and effing amazing, every time we walk into the kitchen, you'll hear us go "Woah! It's awesome!"

How I wish I could pop in and shop for reclaimed wood like you did. Here in SA, I have to source it from Gumtree "our craigslist" and then drive around the city to it up from various residences. I spend more money on fuel than wood, but the outcome is always worth it! right!

To Allen,

I'm intrigued that you used the same process for your laminate countertops and would like to do the same.  Any chance you have a tutorial or pictures online?




Great Idea I had old laminate countertops and used the same technique for my countertops, they turned out beautiful

If you have sturdy studs and know where they are you should be golden. Our wall is a bit less reliable to wanted to cover our bases!

Was there a reason for the added studs?  I was just wondering if you could attach this directly to the wall if you know where your studs are?  Thansk!

So creative and wonderful! Great job!

Now this is like a work of art to my eyes. I love wood grain.
