salvaging wood

I love what Carolina Gonzales did with brackets and wooden pieces in her greenhouse. Green and budget-friendly. I find pieces of wood everywhere. Back in my wanna-be-a-painter days, I couldn’t collect enough of the stuff. Most of the pieces I’d find in alleys and thrift stores, outside of construction sites and randomly, my Dad’s house. I have three great pieces that don’t match each other but are the right size for the walls in the front room in our house.

I like the idea of having a bunch of different mismatched recycled shelves. Some from wooden pieces I have found and others from thrift store shelving or Etsy sellers, all tied together by the books resting atop them.

This is sounding like a fun fall/winter project. Off to find some brackets.
