Reclaimed Wood Christmas Table Centerpiece

By Creatively Living on Nov 30, 2012

I was happy to spot this piece of abandoned wood the other day while I was running.

OK, so I spotted 2-3 pieces of wood….and talked my husband into pulling them out of a huge garbage pile and placing them in our stroller.

Do you do this sort of thing? Does your husband roll his eyes, but put up with you anyways?

We ran a good 2 miles back like this.

One man mentioned that he didn’t think our stroller would “take off”. I think he thought it looked like a plane.

I had been wanting  some wood for the table centerpiece, and I was sure one of these pieces would work.


I added some silver and glitter…

And candles and evergreen cuttings (notice my 2 yr old decided to color on my number..just keepin’ it real!)…

And more shiny-stuff and a disco ball or two.

What, you don’t use disco balls in your Christmas decor?

All I had to do was give it a good cleaning and dry brush a little white paint here and there.

Do you junk when you run, or walk, or when you’re driving by, doing something totally unrelated to junking?
