Although reclaimed wood is known for its great character, beautiful imperfections and unusual markings, you might want your reclaimed wood desk serve as focal point and is a topic of conversation for a while. If you want to add an unexpected touch by some fabulous and radiant effect, you have many options to choose from. Think about the possibility of dye your recycled wood table in an unexpected color like lime green, bright orange or bright pink. Colorful dyes let you add a bright splash of color to your room without covering the beautiful natural grain of the wood.
Although maybe your reclaimed wood desk already has a certain amount of wear, a piece that seems much worn be a unique focal point. Add nail holes in groups to the entire surface and make some dents with a hammering or a large piece of heavy chain.
Applying a crackle finish is another way to add texture and interest to any further reclaimed wood desk furniture. Start with a base coat of paint or stain, apply an agent to crackle and then apply a final coat of gloss, and just wait until the surface from cracking, showing the base layer beneath.
