Tree Removal in Denver and Ideas to Repurpose Wood in Your Home


April 26, 2017

There are many reasons you may need to have a tree removed. At times, diseased or dying trees will need to be removed to ensure there is no damage to the house itself. Also, there are safety issues involved and otherwise perfect trees must be removed. If you must remove trees around your home, consider repurposing wood! You could use it in a variety of ways from furniture to shelving and keep elements of your once tall trees in your Denver home.

Table and Chairs

Transforming and repurposing old wood into a table is a fantastic way to add a custom style in your home. Depending on the style of your home, you can make or have a table made to fit. For farmhouse or traditional homes, consider a table made completely of wood. Create a long wooden table paired with a gorgeous color stain that helps it fit with other colors in the room. For modern or contemporary homes, consider a wood top with a metal or pipe bottom and legs. This unique style will stand out and provide flair to your home. Pair it with a pair of custom made wooden chairs. In addition to chairs, consider making wooden stools of your repurposed wood, or add a bench on one side of your table.  Have a large backyard? Consider adding a picnic table or chairs made from your old tree’s wood!

Cabinets and Shelving

Can you ever have enough storage space? Repurposing wood as a cabinet or shelf is a great addition to your home! Plus, you will have complete control and can build or have something build perfectly for an area. For instance, choose a corner cabinet to store dishes, essentials, supplies and more. Once it is built, you can add a stain to it, or paint it a color that matches other elements of the room. Next, wood shelving is a very durable option. From thick to thin shelves, you can really have fun and play with some great ideas that look great in any room. You can also put wood shelves on a grid system or using metal or steel pieces to mount them on the wall.

Bedroom Furniture

Use your reclaimed wood to transform your bedroom. Many love the way a wooden structure looks. However, that is not your only option! You can complement your current bedroom arrangement with a wooden headboard. There are so many options to customize a headboard. The wood can also be great to customize nightstands that are connected to your bed or stand-alone. Wood can also create a gorgeous vanity or dresser for essentials or a way to help you get ready in the morning.
