Rustic elements seem to not only evoke a sense of times long ago but a truth to the past that once thrived long before we arrived. Adding these reminders in a rustic decor brings warmth and satisfaction to the overall feel of the room.
Colleen from Life on Keydeross Creek added an interesting metal wall accent to her shelf using a piece of metal roofing. The roof already had a good bit of rust on it and was perfect for Colleen’s decor. She explains in her instructions the process of making a frame to go around the metal.
She wanted to frame to be darker than the metal, so she added some mineral oil to the boards which enhanced their color. A couple of L brackets held the boards together. This metal wall decor looks great paired with her other rustic pieces. Colleen has a wonderful style for decorating in rustic appeal.
