Table Lamps made of a Bag of AcornsReclaimed wood is a versatile accessory for many homes; it’s a perfect accent for contemporary design as well as a home with more rustic décor. The character and texture of barn wood provides a warm and welcoming backdrop as an accent wall or trim, or is also at home as a feature piece of furniture in a room. To further enhance the décor of a rustic home, burlap is a suitable fabric for accessories. Pillows, draperies, and lampshades are all great places to introduce the rough and rustic texture of natural burlap. To add a unique and personal flair, stencil a design onto the burlap or use the label section from a burlap feed sack. An affordable fabric, burlap is a sensible and stylish drapery for large windows and/or areas that need softening. Its open weave filters light without blocking too much of it, and lends a rustic touch to the hard edges around windows. For a more primitive look, the fabric can be attached with tacks or nails and secured with twine. Or, if you prefer a more finished look, the swag of burlap can be wrapped around or hung on a traditional curtain rod. Burlap and barnwood are a rustic decorator’s dream, such as this Burlap Bag of Pine Cones Lamp. The combination of the two meld together perfectly and create a serene and natural setting. As Forrest Gump might say if he were decorating a home, burlap and barnwood are “like peas and carrots”.
