Most decorations made out of wood are either crafted from new wood or reclaimed wood. When wood is reclaimed it is often taken from older furniture, flooring, or homes that have stood for a long period. This shows that the wood reclaimed is very strong and powerful, meaning it can be used and will last for a long time.

Hanging reclaimed wood shelves will allow you to have long-term and durable display space. These shelves support the usefulness of allowing you to decorate your home, while also bringing the wooden and rustic feel to your walls.

Rustic Wooden Lanterns

When you have lights, such as candles or light bulbs, it would be smart to have them put into something so they do not get wax all over the place or cause any burns. One idea is to place them within a lantern made from carved wood. This brings the feel for rustic lanterns back into the modern space while helping you provide light into your home.

These lanterns can be placed anywhere, on shelves, tables, or even hung on walls if that’s what you’d like to do. They will bring a great decoration while providing you the use of lighting wherever you’d like to place it. 

Carved Wooden Display

You can place a lot of decorations on walls or onto tables taking up some space to provide decoration and fill the space around your home. One of these great decor ideas you can do is to use a carved wooden display that can either be placed on a table or shelf that will show the carved details.

Carved wood is often sculpted from a wooden block or other pieces of wood with a knife or other tool to make designs into the wood. These carved blocks are often handcrafted to have magnificent designs and accents that allow you to display another amazing artwork around your home.

Corner Column for Book Shelf

If you’re a bookworm or just an avid reader that is running out of space to place your books neatly and uniquely, then this idea is for you! You can turn that empty corner of your home into a little nook for storing your books, or even a little private space for you to read peacefully in the quiet.

You’d do this by building a wooden column with different shelves attached to it acting as bookshelves. These shelves would then be decorated with your different books, allowing you to have a great rustic, or even cottagecore decoration while having an awesome place to store your books and read.

Oak End Table with Birch Legs

Modern end tables are crafted out of one material and can look quite boring given the fact that they are often square, with square legs, and just maybe having a pull-out drawer. A great change to this would be to have an end table that is crafted out of multiple materials and even avoid the whole square geometry by using more organic shapes.

This would be achieved by making an end table using the circular log style of a tree trunk, and perhaps sturdy branches or boughs from another tree to create an end table! An example of this would be to use oak and birch, each offering their color to make it more colorful, and different sizing to break the geometry of square shapes.
