One or more rustic accessories can really warm up the décor and the ambiance, making a space feel a lot more inviting and comfortable. And since mirrors are so versatile and part of every home’s interior design, they’re the perfect choice. If it’s the look you care about and not necessarily the authenticity of the item, you can even build the frame yourself and make it look rustic. Sometimes it’s just easier to make something yourself than to try to find the item in stores or at yard sales. It’s why we’ll start with a few DIYs. The materials needed for the first one include a large pine board, wide enough for you to attach a mirror to it and to leave some space around the edges, 4 trim pieces, 4 detailed interior trim pieces and a dark stain of your choice.
The great thing about mirror is that they’re extremely versatile and can be added to pretty much any type of space. A mirror with a rustic frame can add a warm touch to a bathroom for example. So consider mounting it above the sink. If the bathroom already has an overall rustic décor, the mirror will fit right in. pick a size that matches the space. This one is perfect for the double sink vanity and the dark stain on the frame matches the cabinet. A different design solution is to use two separate mirrors instead of a single large one. This way you make it clear there are two separate zones and it helps if the sinks or washbasins are also placed some space apart from each other.
Our enthusiasm for DIY projects involving Ikea products led us to explore a bit more the versatility of the Ikea Lack Table. There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
Featuring a square concrete top and a sturdy wooden base, the Home Styles coffee table is a very versatile piece of furniture able to integrate easily in both modern and rustic or traditional interior designs. Handcrafted from stone composite and natural fibers, the Element coffee table is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, although it should be covered during bag weather to avoid damage. It has a square top and a matching block base.
