Some more complex items can also be made using driftwood. You’ll need patience and creativity. A driftwood lamp, for example, would be a very beautiful and unique decoration for any home. In this case, the project can go in two directions. You can either make a permanent or a temporary lamp. In both cases you’ll need pieces of driftwood. To make a temporary one you just need to fix the driftwood pieces to the base of a lamp with wire or tape. In you want to make a permanent lamp you can just use glue to keep everything together.

Rustic woods, earth elements, antiques, faded fabrics and soft cotton throws come together in Rustic Luxury.Together they create interiors that brings together the best of both their worlds. Both feminine and masculine, the ying and the yang, mixed with a palette of warm browns, subtle taupe, white washes and multi layered textures.
Floating shelves dont have traditional brackets that can hinder your efforts to create beautiful wall designs. Instead, they have internal brackets that usually run the entire depth of the shelf. They are installed in such a way that you never see the bracket at all. This is done by sliding the shelving onto the brackets by way of an opening in the back of the shelf. This method creates a cleaner and much sleeker look to the shelves. By using this type of shelving, you have the ability to put your shelves anywhere. Even the smallest places will not look cluttered when you install floating shelves.
Another very useful item for any home is a coat rack. If you want to create something original you can make one yourself using a tree branch or a piece of driftwood. You can either mount it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling or any other structure. Add hooks directly onto the rack or put hangers on it to protect its surface. Make sure it’s big enough to accommodate your clothes and accessories.
When you first get started on home interior decorating, it is a good idea to have at least some notion of the kind of color scheme you might like. That is not to say that you cant change your mind while you are working out a plan. It is much better to change at this stage than when you already have the paint on the walls.
Perhaps the kitchen is your bete noir? If it is you can do a lot with some new blinds and lampshades. Try some potted plants on the window ledge this can brighten most kitchens. If the paint-work really is past its prime then you need to decide whether you need a whole new paint job or whether you can get away with touching up the doors and base boards. If your bedroom needs a face-lift then try some new bed covers and toning curtains. Add a few cushions to your bed and you immediately have a more luxurious look.
Another thing you can make using driftwood is a cloth hanger. It’s a practical item and it will also have a unique look. For this project you’ll need some dry tree branches or pieces of driftwood, wire cutters, pliers, a saw, a drill and glue. Start by peeling off the bark from the branches so that your cloths won’t get dirty. Then drill a hole in the middle of the branch and attach the hook using strong glue. Let it dry and your hanger is ready.
