As you are remodeling and decorating your home, barn wood is not likely to be the first choice in décor material that comes to mind. However, the rustic look of barn wood can look beautiful. In fact, here are some fun and creative ways you can incorporate barn wood into the décor of your home.
1. Turn The Wood Into Wall Art
If you have a nice solid piece of barn wood, consider drawing and painting a picture on it. You could decorate the wood with your favorite animal, your favorite color, or your favorite shape. You could also just paint it all the colors of the rainbow. Then, you would have a rustic looking piece of rainbow wall art to hang up. The barn wood will make a nice canvas for whatever you want to decorate it with.
2. Add Barn Doors to Your Bedroom
Consider converting your bedroom door and the closet door in your bedroom to a barn door. If you have a master bathroom inside of the rom, consider converting that door as well. The barn wood on the door will give the room a warm and inviting feeling. It may feel a little like you are sleeping inside of a cabin.
3. Frame or Hide Your Television
Consider cutting a barn door in half and hanging it from the wall above your television. You can push each half of the door apart to frame your television, or you can push them together to hide it when you are not using it. This is a fun and easy way to put the television away when you have guests coming over or you want to enjoy family time without the television.
4. Add a Warm Welcome to Your Home
Convert your entry door to a gorgeous barn door. A sliding barn door will make a very attention grabbing front door and it will save space as it opens and closes without taking up so much room.
5. Accents and Trim
Barn wood will make great accents and trim all throughout your home. All you have to do is walk around your home and think about how things would look if there was a little rustic wood being used as the trim or as an accent.
As you can see, there are a lot of fun and creative ways to add barn wood to your home's décor. Fortunately, these are all fairly easy too. Check out reclaimed wood décor by MyBarnwoodFrames.com for more information.
