I love nothing better than to create something new that would have otherwise ended up in the trash. And that is truly the case with my reclaimed wood pumpkins.
Truth be told, I am quite the sentimental girl. All of the wood we used was salvaged from my Grandfather’s house, that he built by hand, piece by piece. It had to be torn down 2 years ago AND I SALVAGED WHAT I COULD. This project seemed like a perfect way to actually use the wood and get it out of storage.
Using reclaimed wood in projects has reached a fevered pitch. I have been obsessed with it for so long that I am glad that it has become a “thing.” I do worry though, that people do not take the time to properly clean it before using it in their homes. So in an effort to save the world from dirty reclaimed wood, here is how I sanitize the crap out of reclaimed wood.
