Revisited: Reclaimed Beauty in a Tennessee Mountain Home

A few weeks ago, we took a look at a cabin in Tennessee near the Great Smoky Mountains and the DIY transformation the owner completed a few years back. This blogger recently had the opportunity to visit the cabin and see how the heart pine flooring, from Albany Woodworks, was holding up to wear and tear of mountain living. We also explore the unique wood accents the homeowners created using some of the spare wood flooring. The result is an utterly charming mountain retreat.

(Pictured above) The living room space, complete with a fireplace, is cozy and warm with the reclaimed heart pine flooring installed several years back. It is still in beautiful condition even through years of the owners residing here and rentals to mountain seekers. The flooring ties in beautifully with the natural wood trim, beam encasing and fire place mantle.

(Pictured above) The owners opted for eclectic furnishings including this natural edge table. It complements the color of the pine flooring nicely, giving plenty of rustic ambiance to this room.

(Pictured above) The log bed frame, custom closet door and natural edge bedside tables in the master bedroom really embrace the feeling of mountain living, imitating the wooded surroundings of the cabin.

There were plenty of hidden gems of reclaimed wood accent walls from the kitchen (pictured above), where the salvaged lumber became a creative back splash for the sink area, to the bathroom, creating an airy atmosphere full of character (pictured below).

The huge walk in shower included a beautifully painted octagonal window with the perfect hint of reclaimed wood as a frame around the top (pictured below). 

Of course, no vacation home is complete without tokens from your home state. The owners tied in the Deep South with folk art from Louisiana. The rustic wood back splash provides the perfect backdrop, giving it a homespun feel.
