Welcome friends to a fun event, Salvage Style--9 junking, salvaging, reclaiming bloggers joining up to bring you 9 fabulous projects!  Not only are we showing you 9 great, doable projects, but there is a link party where you can link up your own Salvage Style projects and a pin board where we will be pinning our favorite Salvage Style projects.
I created a fun, fall pumpkin from reclaimed wood.

I started by making a pattern from a piece of newspaper.  I just free-handed the pumpkin on half the paper so that it was symmetrical.  I traced this onto two pieces of salvaged barn wood.

I cut out each half with a jigsaw.

Next I gathered a pile of reclaimed wood and trim pieces.

I painted these orange, green, turquoise, and white.  I sanded them when they were dry.

I placed the pumpkin halves face down on my workspace and then put the boards face down in the order I wanted and secured them with screws from the back.

A little Minwax Puritan Pine stain over the whole thing completes this fresh, reclaimed, salvaged wood pumpkin--a perfect fall decoration!
