Recycled barns and ships, oh my!

To follow-up on Dana’s post on Faux Bois, today we are going to discuss a unique application using reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood wall tiles to be exact. Intrigued?

Everett & Schilling, a company out of Colorado, makes handmade, re-purposed wood tiles from barn-wood. They like to say that their tiles are made in America, twice :) . The tiles are attached to a patent-pending backer for easy installation and then coated with a low VOC, water-based ceramic finish. The end product is quite stunning.

Here is a kitchen back-splash belonging to Erin of Suburban Bitches (got to love their name).

Gorgeous, right? She used E&S's herringbone tile in whitewash.

Erin also used E&S's tile on a wall in her livingroom. This tile is called Timberline Barn Planks.  She has such great taste.

Another recycled wood tile on the market is called ship-wood. It is made from old, salvaged Vietnamese ships. The end product is a beautiful tile with high variation in color.  A company called Natural Mosiac Tiles sells ship-wood tiles and states that they can be used both indoors and outdoors. Here are a few of my favorites:

Barn-wood tiles and ship-wood tiles, two different looks but equally stunning.

I would love the opportunity to use reclaimed wood tiles in an upcoming project. They add such a great textural element and warmth. Not to mention, they are environmentally friendly.

Well, I hope you discovered something new. Until next time, lovelies.
