Woodliness is next to Godliness: How to incorporate rustic wooden elements in your home.

The guest posting continues today with Angie from The Country Chic Cottage showing us how she brings rustic wooden elements in her home. Please head to Angie’s blog to pin any of the images you see here! Hope you guys are having a great week!

Hello!  My name is Angie and I blog over at The Country Chic Cottage.  I blog about my home and the ways I combine rustic farmhouse elements with other home decor items.  I thought I would share with you all 5 ways I have used rustic wood in my home.  

The first way is to use rustic barn wood in furniture.  We have built a mantle and a desk hutch out of barn wood found on our farm.  I love both of these pieces and the rustic vibe they bring to our home. 

The second way I add that rustic wood touch to my home is to bring barn wood to my walls.  My Hunger Games Love Sign and barn wood shelf are both great examples of this.

The third way is by making everyday wood objects appear to be vintage and rustic.  You can check out my DIY vintage crate or my DIY Pottery Barn Knock Off Dough Bowl.  Both are great examples of techniques to age items.  

The fourth way is to use unexpected rustic vintage items in new ways.  My vintage ladder quilt hanger and using a rustic window as a frame are great examples of this.

Of course the fifth way is to use found vintage items as decor.  Items like fruit baskets, wooden cheese boxes, dough bowls, and wooden spools can all add a rustic touch when used in your decor.

I hope y’all will be able to pick up a few of these tips and bring some rustic wood decor into your own home.  Thanks so much Beth for having me today!  Y’all come over to the cottage anytime for a visit and be sure to follow along on facebook, Pinterest, or twitter to keep up with all of my rustic wood finds!

  1. Love, love, love that ladder with the quilts! Totally need one for myself!

  2. yokebe ja oder nein says:

    Falls Ihr mich selber befragt, dann mag ich jedem natürlich ans Herz
    legen, Euch ganz mit frischen Duschen zu befassen.
    Ich kenne nur wenige Praktiken, die einen so starken Effekt auf die
    Leistungsfähigkeit des Blutkreislaufs innehaben. Man selbst wird
    topfit oder strotzt vor Energie. Hinter so einer Brause habe ich
    ständig starke Lust meinen Körper zu bewegen. Hiermit nicht
    genug, mithilfe eisiger Duschen aktiviert man ebenso die
    Transformation von weißem zu braunem Fettzellengewebe!
    Dieses Gewebe hat Mitochondrien, das wiederum heißt,
    dass von selbst schon Kalorien verbrannt werden. Schlüsselwort Thermogenese.

    Unter dem Blickwinkel rechnet sich durchaus die
    kühle Eiswanne, findet Ihr nicht auch? 🙂
    Herzliche Grüße
