How to do rustic decor shelves
Hi Aide. You could leave a live edge on the front of the shelves. A live edge is a board that still has the bark on the front surface. Using one of these boards will give you a rustic look. You should be able to find them at Home Depot, Wayfair or on Amazon.
Hi ! I am not sure I know what you're asking , how to make the shelves look rustic or what decor to put on them to look rustic ... To make shelves look rustic , get some line boards and hang them up with a hammer , maybe some chain . Use a screwdriver to put some scratches on it and use a small nail and hammer to make small clusters of holes to look like worm holes. But a product made by Varethane called a wood age , this is easy and fun to use ! Just wipe it on and wait 30-60 minutes and your wood will look old !!! Decide if you want a second coat . It comes in brownish or grayish tones . As for decor on your shelves , it depends on what room... I have this in my kitchen , I made a wall pantry and use mason jars and other glass jars for my dry goods . Mixed on the
shelves I have old bottles and a few antique kitchen tools . If it was in my bed room or living room I would like some old books , vintage bottles , or antique candle holders , ... Go into and antique store and look for a few inexpensive pieces . Good luck & have fun !!!!
