Scrap wood in a heap doesn't look so hot. Scrap wood installed on a wall, however, can look anywhere from eclectic to posh. Such walls seem to work in any room in the house and even outside the house. In this eye candy roundup, I've tried to find some of the best examples of trend.
For our first entry, we have a scrap wood wall in a kitchen made of salvaged douglas fir, angel's heart, mahogany and black walnut.
Garrison Hullinger et al. were responsible for this colorful bedroom wall:
Orientation doesn't have to be consistent, as evidenced by this dining room wall.
This bedroom wall consists of 2 x 4's ripped to 1/4 to 1" thicknesses. They were then--get this--attached to the wall with hot glue.
If you don't have enough scrap wood for an entire wall, a headboard will do just fine.
Check out the wall on the left in this next image. It appears to be end cuts.
Does MDF count as wood? If so, check out Jason's bathroom wall.
And, finally, how about a scrap wood exterior wall? This one belongs to Central de Arquitectura in Mexico City.
