Wooden Picture Frame
You can convert any picture frame to rustic décor by simply adding small slices of wood. If you don’t already have a few on hand, just cut up the slices from branches that you can find in your yard.

Stone Kitchen Island
Ok, so this project may take a little more cash and a lot more time, but it is definitely worth it. If you have a kitchen island or if you have always wanted one, make it from bricks or stones.

Wood pieces put together make a beautiful backsplash that definitely makes a statement in any room. If you have a wall available, you can create this lovely setting by simply adhering wood pieces to the wall. You can also build a small wall to create a division wherever you need it.
