No matter where you live in the country or in the city, you can still have beautiful rustic decoration and you can do it all yourself.
Old pallets are relatively easy to come by and they are really cheap. The great thing about them is you can do so much with them – like these quick and easy pallet shelves. You only need about three hours per shelf and a few supplies and you can stain them in whatever color you want to make them match your existing décor.
Rustic Photo Frames
Old wooden photo frames can be turned into beautiful rustic décor with just a bit of work. You can use burlap for the matting and then add black and white photos, cardboard Monogram cutouts or anything you want. You can even add small satin ribbons to decorate them a bit if you wish. These are easy to do and look so beautiful in any room.
An old plastic picture frame can be instantly turned into rustic décor using just twine rope and a hot glue gun. You just have to glue the rope to the frame, making sure that you cover the original frame completely. This is a great gift idea or would look perfect in any little cowboy’s bedroom.
Rustic Coffee Table
A few slats of wood – and they don’t have to all be the same shade or color – can be put together to create a stunning coffee table. Just pattern the pieces and stick them together with wood glue and small nails. Then you just have to add legs of some sort and you have a very expensive looking coffee table that is a lot cheaper than it looks.
You can buy clock kits at any hobby store and most home improvement stores. Once you have a clock kit in hand, just find a great piece of wood, varnish and stain it and then add the clock to create a beautiful wooden clock. This is a great piece for rustic living rooms or you can use it in kitchens, bathrooms or bedrooms as well.
