Interior Barnwood Mosaic

I saw a nice wall made by the Lucky Dumpster which was a mosaic of barnwood pieces. I had Trestlewood mill up a variety of colors of barnwood into tongue-and-groove “flooring.” Eric, my finish carpenter, then installed the pieces on the family room wall. It’s excellent.

Here it is finished…

Barnwood wall with TV mounted. I fed the cables through the wall directly into the a/v closet under the stair.
