What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘rustic’? Little house in the countryside? Imperfect things? Antiques?
Must have heard the saying “Old is Gold”. The rustic style, any experiments with wood becoming hugely popular these days. Well, rustic is something that I find simple but beautiful, imperfect but still looking perfect. Those unique combinations of those few unique imperfect pieces which still add to the aesthetics.
You don’t even have to live near the farmlands or in the country to have a rustic look in your home. You can get a rustic look in your home without undergoing an expensive large-scale renovation of your home or buying a new rustic place. All it takes to add a few unique elements and ideas to create an altogether different feel.
I have found out some of the best rustic home decor ideas to give your home the beautiful rustic look. You will definitely find something in this collection which would be helpful for your house. These projects are easy to do and can be done in less time. Have a look at them and let me know what do you think.
1. Distressed Milk Paint Picture-Hanging Rod
Via Kruse’s Workshop
When first looked, it gave me the feeling of family photographs in an old, ancient photo frame. You definitely need to visit your nearby hardware store for this as chances are very less of finding most of the required materials at home. You need some flanges, elbows, anchors (too much of hardware terms, phew!) for this rustic home decor idea.
2. Hutch In The Living Room
Via Love Grows Wild
This hutch completely implants the rustic feeling along with providing a huge space for storing things. But don’t fill it up with things. Leaving it open, decorating and keeping a few things in a proper curated manner as shown in the picture will make it more soothing and elegant along with keeping it simple.
3. Dining Room Flower Centerpiece
Via Laurie Annas
This huge flower centerpiece will look perfect on your grand dining table. It just completes the room shown in the above picture. What else is needed. The box in which the flowers are kept gives the exact rustic look which is needed for a dining place and thus, gives it the aesthetics of an ancient abode.
4. Milk Can Coffee Table
Via Love Grows Wild
When I first looked at it, I couldn’t even recognize the milk can. It looked to me just like an ordinary stand supporting the table. It costs around $20 to make it. Yes! A new rustic coffee table for you in $20 ($2 for the can and around $18 for rest of the stuff) and some hard work to make it. You will definitely get better at crafts after making this.
5. Rustic DIY Wood Crate Centerpiece

7. Rustic Three Tier Wood Slice Stand
This is something very different. This stand looks amazing as a showpiece along with being used for keeping things. You require three wooden slices, two glass candlesticks, three wooden cabinet knobs, and epoxy glue. It is very easy to make.
First, stick the two glass candlesticks and the wooden slices with the help of glue such that it forms the structure as shown in the pic above. Allow it to dry. Then glue the three cabinet knobs to the bottom as feet. Not at all a rocket science!
It’s great for seasonal decor at your home or setting out food at the party or as a showpiece with some stuff arranged on it.
