Using driftwood for decoration is a brilliant idea because not only is it beautiful but it is also environmentally friendly as you are using reclaimed old wood to create new and amazing designs. Driftwood items don’t always have a coastal or beach feel to them, they can look fantastically rustic. There are many cool creations from designers – driftwood tables, lamps, stools and coat racks – but you can also make various simple driftwood decorative items yourself. For example, a jewelry hanger made of driftwood, a candle holder, a wall shelf or a photo display. Driftwood is also very cool for table decorations – centerpieces, placemats and table garlands. Enjoy the beautiful pictures below and get inspired!
Driftwood can be used to make furniture and lamps – you can make such pieces yourself or buy ready-made ones. Driftwood can become a base for your dining, coffee or console table, it can be used to build a shelf, some shelves, clothes and jewelry holders and hangers and even benches, sofas and chairs. As far as lamps go, the idea is pretty cool: cover the base of the lamp with driftwood and voila! You can also make a driftwood hanging lamp using lightbulbs and rope. There are tons of ideas to try, it all depends on how much crafting you’re up to, and these pieces will give you an instant beach feel.
