reclaimed wood furniture

I’ve been having a love affair with reclaimed wood furniture for quite some time now.  I just adore the mix of old wood with the modern lines of the furniture.  Since the house we’re buying was built in 1913, I want to embrace the history, but have the home still feel fresh and new, so I’m definitely going to go for a blend of old + new in the design of the house.  Because of this, I’ve seriously toyed around with the idea of including some gorgeous reclaimed wood pieces, and I just had to share some of my favorite finds with you today.

My absolute favorite company that sells reclaimed wood pieces is called Blake Avenue.  There isn’t a single piece of furniture they make that I wouldn’t consider putting in my home, and I honestly don’t know if I could say that about any other store.  The piece of furniture that originally made me fall in love with the company was the credenza below, and from there, the rest is history.  Look at all of these beautiful pieces:

There’s only one problem with these gorgeous pieces: their price.  In reality, they are pretty fairly priced when you compare them to something you’d purchase from Crate & Barrel or Room & Board.  But when you’re trying to furnish an entire house, I’m going to save the major money for the big pieces (like our couch and table).  Sidenote: I’m also completely determined to try and build something out of reclaimed wood for this next house go-round.
Anyways, so we’ve established the fact that I love reclaimed wood.  Well, imagine my excitement when last night, I was cruising around Pinterest, and I stumbled upon this picture:
“Ooooh, pretty,” I thought to myself.  And then as my eyes wandered down the screen, I saw my favorite 6 letter word: TARGET.  I thought for sure it was too good to be true, so I quickly clicked over.  Sure enough, this jaw-dropper is available at Target, but the fun doesn’t stop there.  Check what else is in this stunning collection:
 

 

Those prices!  I mean, come on!  It was all I could do to prevent myself from running out and buying them all right then and there.  Thankfully, there’s this little thing called our storage locker that is currently overflowing, and then there’s the fact that I’m not positive how I’d use these pieces in our next house.  Oh, and that little issue of us not actually having the house yet….yeah. About that. Come on house.  I need this furniture.  Do me a favor?  Go buy it and make your house beautiful.  Because if I could, I would.

ps…if you head over to my facebook page, I posted all of the before & after pictures from our first house today.  :)
