Add a Rustic Feel to Your House with these Woodwork Ideas

21 Nov. 2016

You don't have to live in the countryside or on a farm to enjoy a tranquil and rustic feel in your house. Even in the heart of the city, rustic decoration is both charming and fashionable. It doesn't matter what type of house or flat you live in, a few very simple woodwork ideas could make it a more relaxing and stylish place. It could even possibly increase its value. Below are a few ideas for simple woodwork projects that can be both cheap and easy, as well as giving your home a little bit more character.

Wooden photo frames can easily be made from wooden pallets and they look great on any wall. Usually all you need to do is sand down the pallet a little bit and find the right colour of wood paint. If it is already the right colour, or you want to make sure the effects last longer, it can be a good idea to stain or wax it. Otherwise, you can make it even more special by creating the picture frame from small slices of wood.
It is even possible to make these yourself by cutting up slices of branches that you have in your garden. However, if you don't like the sound of this, or you don't own a garden, you can get the same affect if you build a picture frame from little twigs that you can pick up almost anywhere. All you need to do is glue them to the frame.

Most of the same principles can be used to make a rustic wooden clock. All you need to do is find a good sized wooden pallet, which you then stain and varnish. Then purchase a clock kit which you should be able to buy at most home improvement shops or online.

Another very simple idea is to install some wooden shelves. This can be done with as little as a plank of wood, which you can then sand, paint and stain to your preferences. Once you have firmly attached it to your wall, it will be both an attractive and convenient place for leaving photos, flowers or even just your drink or car keys. It will undoubtedly look much better than any plastic equivalent.

There is no reason to be scared of having a go at something a little bit more adventurous like a coffee table or a headboard for your bed. Even these can be surprisingly simple and can be made by most adults with the help of a short YouTube video.

If you really want to feel like you are living in an old farmhouse, then you can cover a wall or two with wooden planks. Even this is surprisingly simple. All you need to do is cut the planks to the right size, stain them to your taste and screw or nail them to the wall to add an entirely different character to your home.
