Upcycle of the Month: Reclaimed Wood Ceiling From Blog Cabin

install a reclaimed wood ceiling

This rustic-style ceiling was clad with boards reclaimed from the old dock at DIY’s Blog Cabin 2013.

Whether you’ve been following DIY Network’s Blog Cabin for years or you’re new to the whole Blog Cabin craze, I know you’ll love the clever salvage and upcycling projects that come out of the house project every year. That’s why we’re starting a new monthly series here on Made + Remade featuring great remaking ideas from Blog Cabin.

First up? A reclaimed wood ceiling from this year’s Blog Cabin, a beach retreat on the North Carolina coast. A great contrast for the sea blue and fresh, clean white in the rest of the sunroom’s palette, the rustic-style ceiling was made from dock boards reclaimed when the old dock was rebuilt. You could re-make a similar ceiling at home using any reclaimed boards, as long as they’re straight and free of insects and toxins. Follow along with the steps in the gallery below.

Stay tuned for more great upcycling project from Blog Cabin 2013 and from year’s past. You can learn more about the remodeling of Blog Cabin and tour the house and property to see more.

Oh, and did I mention that you can enter for the chance to win Blog Cabin? Um, yeah. You should do that. Because this house is amazing.
