Reclaimed Wood paneling

Transform any room into a cozy retreat or rustic cabin getaway when you decorate it with our reclaimed wood paneling. Each piece carries stories from the past – whether it be old logging camps, historic wooden ships or family barns that were deconstructed many years ago – adding warmth and style to your space like nothing else can!


Reclaimed wood wall panels are made from lumber that has been salvaged from old buildings, barns, and other structures that are destined for demolition. Using recycled timber not only provides a unique and rustic aesthetic, but it also reduces the amount of lumber waste that ends up in landfills. Integrating salvaged lumber into your home or office decor is better for the environment than cutting down new trees because it helps keep natural resources and forests safe. When properly maintained, reclaimed wood paneling can last for decades. Furthermore, the use of repurposed lumber in interior design has been shown to reduce stress levels and improve overall well-being, as it grants a natural and calming atmosphere. In addition to its many environmental and aesthetic benefits, it is also a wise investment, as it can add value to any home or business. Whether you are looking to create a cozy and inviting living room or a stylish and trendy office space, reclaimed wood paneling is a versatile and sustainable design solution that is sure to impress.



Reclaimed wood paneling is the process of making wall panels out of wood from old buildings, barns, and other structures that are no longer being used. By repurposing this type of lumber it can be given a second life and contribute to sustainable building practices.

Using brad nails is the most common way. Put a nail into the center top and bottom of the wooden plank. Repeat this simple process until the entire wall is done.

Drive nails through the wood planks and the drywall studs to fasten the wood to the studs beneath the drywall.

You may use either nails or panel glue to install paneling. Adhesives often do a better job than nails, since the panel surface is not marred by depressions caused by the use of nails, but nails perform better in terms of resistance.

Tongue and groove snap in together like puzzle pieces while shiplap boards overlap.

Vertical or horizontal wall anchoring is possible when using shiplap boards. Nail right through the drywall and into the studs behind it. As long as the ceiling or other surface you’re putting over is in great condition, you can also apply construction glue to attach your materials.

Both methods are fine. Use glue and nails for prepainted shiplap, which has a smooth surface. One thing to note, though, is that if you want to keep your wall’s appearance unblemished, you shouldn’t nail through the face of the boards; instead, opt to nail through the flange. 

Yes, reclaimed wood wall panels with a thickness of 1/4″ or more can be nailed directly to studs. Furthermore, a mix of construction glue and nails can be used to properly hang any paneling.

No, anchors are not required for wall paneling. In most cases, the studs are already there behind the drywall. Nail the wall paneling planks into the studs of the wallboard, and you’re all set.

Reclaimed wood panels are often installed at a thickness of 3/8″ to 3/4″. A thickness of 5/8 inches, for instance, would be highly recommended.
