Barnwood - Do or Don't?

Phil and I have been remodeling our kitchen slowly but surely over the last several months. Let's be honest. I've been more moral support.  We are going to be using old barnwood for a few open shelves to soften the industrial feel of the rest of the kitchen.  I like the idea of reusing old wood because its an inexpensive option and it is easy to get. I think others would argue it is overdone. What do you think? Would you or have you put salvaged wood in your house?
