Mushroom wood has become popular for people looking to use an antique wood solution in their home. I watched an episode of Dear Genevieve on HGTV & her clients she worked with wanted to design their living room with Eco-Friendly Southwestern influence. The carpenter she worked with used reclaimed mushroom wood & designed a gorgeous china cabinet. It had an aged look and some flaws in the wood but it had so much character. It was by far my favorite piece of furniture in the room she designed for her clients. An interesting thing about the wood is was cut from Cypress or Hemlock trees, and then salvaged from commercial growing mushroom farms. I never heard of using mushroom wood until watching this episode and now I am obsessed!
Here is a picture of Mushroom wood flooring. I can’t find the picture of the china cabinet on the HGTV episode.

Note: The carpenter had to sand down the wood to make the piece from scratch. (Just something to keep in mind)
