But even then, I would use it whether it was good for the earth or not—I love it that much! There are a variety of ways to use it. Let’s take a look!
Reclaimed wood accent walls make a lovely backdrop to a moody room. You don’t have to cover the whole wall, just a small section works too. It will do the job without having to go overboard on it.
