5 Rustic Decor Ideas for Small Space

Rustic decor is favored because it blends well with both traditional and modern house designs.

1. Cart wheel or ship’s helm

Cart wheel or ship’s helm (steering wheel) is a rustic decorative element that can be applied to everything. You can mount an unused cart wheel or helm on the wall or design a circular window that looks like one. Smaller decorative elements, such as clock, mirror and table, can also adopt the shape of both objects. Cart wheel and ship’s helm have always been favorite rustic objects to be adopted by homeowners who wish to add a rustic atmosphere to their home. Source

2. Pallet table

Wood pallets are mostly discarded after use. You can reuse them to create rustic furniture at your home. Table is possibly the easiest furniture piece to make from pallet. You can disassemble the pallet and use the planks to make a new table or leave the pallet as it is and do some alterations to it to transform it into a fancy table. Wood pallet may look unsightly, but with some treatments, including sanding and varnishing, if needed, it will look attractive. Source

3. Glass bottle vase

Rustic design is mostly about reusing what used to be garbage and transforming it into a functional and beautiful item. If you have some glass bottles scattered around, you can clean them and use them as flower vases. Attach them to a wood board using metal strap then mount the board on a wall. You can use board that is taken from wood pallet to enhance the rustic look of the vases. You can also hang the bottle using a plant hanger. Source

4. Ladder shelves

In a small room, shelves play an important role in reducing clutters. With more shelves, you will have more space to store your items. To make a rusty shelf in your room, mount an unused wooden ladder horizontally on the wall. You can put your books and other small items on it. If you prefer a hanging shelf, you can hang the ladder horizontally facing down using ropes or chains on the ceiling and put your kitchen utensils on it. Source

5. Spool table

An old wooden spool for winding cable or rope can be reused as a table. Simply tumble down the spool so that it lies horizontally on floor and use its top as table and its inside as a rack for books and anything else. This multifunctional furniture piece will make your small room less cluttered although its size is relatively large. Don’t forget to sand the wood and varnish it to make it smoother and to prevent its wood splinters from hurting your hand. Source
