Does your rustic home decor hobby include a rustic home decor lobby? It sure does! Lobbies are very popular these days. They provide a great place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of nature and the warmth of the wood burning fire in a cozy fireplace.
Rustic homes are becoming more popular in today’s world. They represent a simple lifestyle with a “back to nature” appeal. Many people are starting their own family businesses or simply want to own a rustic home decor shop. Rustic home decor items are very attractive, especially when displayed on a rustic themed lobby. So, does your rustic home decor lobby need some furnishings and accent items?
Let’s get started on choosing what decor to display. Most rustic decor is “cabin” style in nature. This means that the furniture and accents all relate back to the cabin in which they were originally built. Here are some suggestions for rustic home decor on your lobby:
o Bed: Rustic beds are a must have. Not only do they fit in with the rustic home decor theme, they are also very comfortable. If you want to try something a little different, try a rustic wood bed with handcrafted designs on the headboard or the footboard. Rustic beds are also a good idea for a rustic home decor business, especially if you want to have custom rustic beds made.
o Dressers: Rustic wood dressers can add a nice touch of color to any rustic home decor theme. You can find them in lots of different styles and finishes. Rustic furniture is made to last. A lot of the older pieces will have some use remaining. This makes rustic wood dressers perfect for adding some character and rustic charm to your rustic home decor theme.
o Coffee Tables: Rustic coffee tables are another fun way to add some character to your rustic home decor. I’m not talking about just any old coffee table. I’m referring to handmade woodworking projects using reclaimed wood from around the country. Woodworking projects like these make perfect rustic home decor because they are both beautiful and useful.
So, what does my rustic home decor hobby need from me? It needs creativity. I love working with wood, but there are times when woodworking gets a little too complicated for me. For these particular times, I like to turn to my pile of salvaged rustic wood furniture to solve my problems.
The above are just a few items that I love working with. I am always on the lookout for unique items to add to my rustic home decor collection. My rustic home decor hobby has also turned into a great investment, as I have bought many fine woodwork to furnish my rustic home.
Of course, one of the first woodworking projects that I start is a birdhouse. I love watching birds, especially during the spring time. If I am lucky enough to have a clear sky, I try to capture some of those great birds in a beautiful wooden birdhouse. I create different sizes and shapes of birdhouses and then arrange them on the branches of my tree. Some are painted, while others are plain and simple.
Another woodworking project that I have recently been very passionate about is a log cabin kit. I have wanted to build a log cabin since I was a little girl. I imagine the feeling that someone would have in having their very own rustic home right in the middle of the forest. Log cabins were very common in the middle of the 19th century. Today, many people build a log cabin as a second home. This is where my passion for woodworking came into play.
I started with my very first log cabin as a project for my son’s birthday. I ordered all the supplies from Home Depot, along with the log plans, an easy to read log building guide, and a few other odds and ends like nails and hinges. I built his log cabin in only two days. It was so beautiful that he asked me to build him a cabin of his in the same style.
When I tell people that I’m into home decor, most of them are surprised. They don’t understand that I spend a lot of time in my home. It seems that there are always new things to learn and perfect my little home decor skills. Even if they don’t understand, they appreciate the idea that I have taken such an interest in this particular type of decorating.
