The Look: Contemporary Rustic Dining Room
In this post:
Enjoying the Simple Things // This stir stick drum shade is an excellent way to repurpose an old light into something wooden, rustic and fabulous on the cheap.
Twenty8Divine // You can easily convert a recessed ceiling light into a boxed pendant feature with some wood and mason jars.
Noting Grace for Remodelaholic // Use pallet wood to make a light box that can alter a cluster of pendant lights into the configuration you need.
The Summery Umbrella for Remodelaholic // Turn an old vanity light from a bathroom into a mason jar chandelier with just a few materials.
Love, Create, Celebrate // With a bundle of 2×2’s you can make a striking wood frame pendant light.
Wall Treatments, etc.
Addison’s Wonderland // This Stickwood wood panel ceiling looks like you spent a ton of time nailing wood planks up, but really they are thin wood tiles that are peel and stick!
DIYFun // A Faux Reclaimed wood accent wall is a great way to add rustic charm. You don’t need old wood, because you can buy inexpensive boards and age them yourself.
Shanty2Chic // If you like the reclaimed wood look, but don’t want to commit to an entire wall, try a wood plank half wall like this one. Top if off with some molding and paint it white for a shiplap feel.
Lovely Etc. // For a wood plank wall with a twist, try staining and dry brushing different stain and paint colors. Watch that feature wall pop!
Her Tool Belt for Remodelaholic // Make your own vintage inspired corbels – used under an island, shelf or table, or mounted in an entryway – add an old world rustic vibe.
Cozy, Stylish, Chic // Birch branch candlesticks are a warm and cozy centerpiece.
Sawdust 2 Stitches for Remodelaholic // A wall cubby is the perfect place to add all those little details in a completed dining room.
Angela Marie Made // Easily transfer designs and quotes onto wood plaques for homey, rustic touch.
Love Grows Wild // Make a wooden trough box to serve as a centerpiece.
