Time—Worn Wood





I can't believe it's Monday already! This weekend passed so quickly, no? An upcoming project inspired today's post and I hope you enjoy...

I love how these homes showcase carefully planned touches of time worn wood in such a great manner you can really appreciate them because they are displayed almost like art, with an abundance of white space around them. There's something so wonderful about their perfect imperfections, and I find that there is usually a story attached with such pieces. Perhaps you found something perfect at a flea market, or it's a piece that has been passed down through the family, or maybe you brought something back from your trip to Europe...

Do you have a special piece/pieces with a story attached?

  2. such beautiful images Sarah! I wish I could display worn wood pieces this way! I do have a lovely bureau from my grandmother, but I made it restore because I thought I couldn't display it worn as it was. now I'm seeing differently worn wood pieces! xo

  3. I have a beautiful old dresser like this that I got at the Georgetown Flea Market in DC years ago. I'm sure it has an interesting story, but it hasn't shared it. The room is all blue and white toile and the old worn wood just looks perfect with it.

  4. My mother gave me an old Chinese urn that my great-grandmother had (where and when she got it, I have no idea). It's chipped here and there, but that just makes it all the more lovely.

  6. These are beautiful! My favourite piece is actually not my own - my uncle had found some salvaged Spanish doors that we beautifully carved and very well worn. He's had a custom mount made and a glass top and uses it as their dining table - it's stunning. I love reclaimed wood pieces.

  7. I love my antique islands, and my reclaimed wood armoire...you are right, blank backdrops really show off worn wood items beautifully...
