Decorating with Wood
Many people love a rustic looking home. One of the many essential pieces to a beautiful rustic looking home is wood. Wood pieces are beautiful but can often be expensive. Wood can be a small accent to a rustic home or a main decoration throughout it. Here are some small and big ways that you can decorate your home with beautiful pieces of wood without having to break the bank to get them.
- Live Edge Table
You’ll have to put a little bit of work into it but it will be well worth the effort! Instead of purchasing a live edge table that can be from anywhere from $500 to $7,000 you can purchase a live edge piece of wood and create it yourself. The piece of wood can be anywhere from $100 to $400. It all depends on the type of wood you get and how big of a piece it is. Then you can finish it yourself and put some simple hairpin legs. This will give you the same look and outcome for less than half the price.
- Wood Floors
There are many pros and cons to a wood floor. One of the pros is the look that wood floors adds to your home. In addition to that you don’t have to worry about stains like carpet or dirty grout lines with tile. However, wood floors do scratch. There must be research done on what type of wood floor to get because some woods have a harder density than others. And the darker the color the more a scratch will show in the wood. The results can be amazing though.
- Wood Accents
There are many “do it yourself” projects that will help give your home a wood accent. One project is using branches to make a chandelier over your kitchen table. Or using a piece of wood that have branch stubs on them to create a coat rack for when you come in the house. You can also take stumps and cut them into 3-inch-thick pieces and create stools for your kitchen at home by putting hairpin legs at the bottom of them. This creates a beautiful look in any home.
