Modern uses for barnboard

Both my mom and my dad have farms. They divorced when I was a kid, but in the last few years, they've both bought places in the country and we couldn't be happier. Not only is it awesome to see them so happy and to have such beautiful properties to call home, we're also thrilled because it gives us a great weekend escape from the city, and more places to scour for materials we can use to make stuff!

Over Easter weekend, we were at both farms (lucky for us they're both kind of in the same direction!). At my mom and stepdad's place, we've found tons of barnboard. At my dad and stepmom's place, a ton of old wooden apple crates. I have big plans for both!

I'll be sharing what I plan to do with this stuff in the near future, but in the meantime I wanted to post a few inspirational images using barnboard that I've found around the web. I think it looks so great in more modern settings. What do you think?

I would love to do a wall like this in a playroom. Image
I don't think I could possibly love this room more! The white, the wood...oh my! From Apartment Therapy.

This headboard has been slightly whitewashed, but it's still such a statement. Image here

I love the contrast of the rustic with the super modern. Source unknown...sorry.
This would be such an easy DIY, don't you think! Via Pinterest
