There are loads of great ways that you can spruce up (pun intended) a picture by stylising a cheap frame fit the rustic décor of your home. One of the easiest ways to do this is simply by adding small slices of wood to the frame. All you need to do is slice up a branch, you can simply pick up one from your garden or the local park easy enough. You’ll need to make sure that the branch is dry, wet wood is a no-go. Once you’ve sliced up a branch or two simply secure the pieces to your frame using a hot glue gun or some good super glue until you’re happy with the finished project. Once the glue has dried you should find yourself with a picture fit for any good hunting lodge.
Stone Built Kitchen Island
This is a project for the more seasoned DIY expert and will require more time and of course money to complete but it’ll certainly be worth it. If you have a kitchen island or are looking to fit one, then this is a great way to add a rustic feel to a nice centrepiece in that space. Building a stack with either stones or bricks for your island is a lot easier than you think it may be and will leave you feeling proud of a great project that you yourself have built as well as having something that adds a whole heap of rustic character to the space.
Imagine doing what you did for that picture frame earlier but then taking it to the absolute extreme, that’s essentially what you’ll be doing when creating this wooden backsplash. If you have a wall available and are looking to fill some space to add to your new décor then all you need do is slice up some logs and then adhere the pieces to the wall to create a backsplash worth of the hardiest woodsman. It’ll make a statement and is perfect for those that want to take the rustic style and turn it up to eleven. You can also use the pieces to make a small wall and then use that to create a division, perfect for those larger rooms with multiple functions.
Wood Slice Clock
We aren’t done with the logs just yet (and likely never will be), making a clock is another great use for a nice slice of wood in the rustic home. First, you’ll want to head to your local craft store and pick yourself up a clock kit. Once you’ve done that, take your nice slice of wood get to varnishing and staining it, you’ll want it to have a nice clean finish after all. Once you’ve done this ad the clock and you’ll have a really handsome looking timepiece for you wall that’ll go with all your other new additions. What’s really great about this is that you can add it to any room in the house and it’ll fit just fine.
