This rustic wood headboard is what I think of when I think of using barn wood in my home. It is elegant yet rustic. Proving that rustic wood can add a rustic, country touch to any home’s decor.
Not willing to go with a headboard? What about wood floors? These reclaimed barn wood floors are gorgeous! Of course, this is a large project, but the results are so worth it…
On a smaller scale, you can refinish your tabletop into a rustic, gorgeous table like Gina’s. Yes, she even shows you how to get this look…
There are other forms of aged wood. Maybe driftwood is more your style? Try making some driftwood wall art with your finds.
Maybe you don’t want to make something or alter your home? Well, then there are plenty of options you can buy and add a rustic wood accent. One of my personal favorites is wood dough bowls…
Another option is adding in rustic wood crates for storage. You can find these at thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales, etc. You can even fake the rustic with this technique.
Think of a variety of ways to use your crate beyond storage. They can make an appearance in any room to add a worn, rustic feel. Think beyond storage to display.
Looking for an even smaller rustic wood touch? A sign can be the perfect way to dip your toe into decorating with rustic wood. Make your own with a worn board and a few minutes.
But wait? Where do you get a worn board? No barns around you? Think PALLETS! The perfect rustic worn board that is often being discarded at a store or dumpster near you. You can make tons of things from this worn rustic wood. Even try your hand at a larger sign.
Find the pallet jackpot? Use them in even more interesting ways such as this pallet wood back splash.
