Faux wood beams are a great way to implement the look of wood without the cost or hassle of solid reclaimed wood!

As we begin our remodel adventure (officially breaking ground on Thursday!), I have had to become versed in windows, wood floors, doors, etc... I can't drive by a house now without checking to see if their windows are vinyl or wood, but that's a whole other blog post. 

During the remodel, we will need to add a wood post to our kitchen, very similar to the photo below, because we are removing a load bearing wall. The post will separate the living room and kitchen, and I am now obsessed with all wood beam interiors.

We will be using a metal post wrapped in wood - probably something reclaimed from the ranch. But after staring at so many wood beams, I am not considering adding a few in the kitchen. The beams in the kitchen below look like they could be faux, if not, they wouldn't be difficult to recreate in a faux manner. 

Do you have any experience with wood beams? I'd love to hear them in the comments!

Elizabeth Kirby of Local Milk has one of THE most amazing blogs, and her house doesn't disappoint either. Both images below showcase her style and wood beams done in the very best way.

Not only am I in love with these beams, but those doors are my everything inspiration for our house. The windows in the kitchen below are incredible too!

Something tells me these aren't recleaimed wood beams...
