3 Rustic (and Gorgeous) DIY Ideas

I'm in the middle ´╗┐of a renovating mess, attempting to transform a run-down, Midwestern ranch into a Scandinavian-inspired rustic cabin. Naturally, when renovating, budgets are top of mind, so I've been scouring my favorite design and decor blogs in search of DIY ideas that won't break the bank (or my back!). Lucky for you, I've stumbled on three top-notch ideas that are equal parts rustic, glam and quirky (my official recipe for style!). Care to tackle a few of these goodies?: A recycled piece of scrap wood and a few thick twigs are transformed into a row of unexpected coat hooks with this easy DIY. Bonus? Get the goods from your own backyard for the ultimate in budget crafting! Via Poppytalk Love the look of antlers and horns, but hate the idea of taxidermy in your home? Get creative with a few scraps of construction paper and some wooden plaques from your local craft store. Via Design*Sponge Of course, for the ultimate in rustic luxuries, a wire-framed pendant is a must. To get the look, simply turn a basket upside down, secure with an exposed bulb lighting kit and "poof!" — instant rustic glamour. Via ReadyMade Feel like tackling a few projects this week? Just how rustic can you go?
