At the close of each year, I like to do a wrap up of the top rustic diy projects that I have done. It’s kind of fun to look back at what has been popular and helps me to plan for the upcoming year. Some of the projects are small and others are bigger in scale but they all carry the same general theme. I use unique items for original decor that is budget friendly!
Here is a look back at 2013.
Rustic DIY Projects
I like to use these sparkly snowballs in baskets or trays for a festive Winter decor filler. Because they are so easy to make, I can have bucketfuls throughout the house.
Some new paint was all that was needed to make this old ladder a handy stool with storage shelves for my bathroom.
3. Rustic End Table Makeover
I used an easy freezer paper transfer technique to put images on the table top surface to use in my son’s bedroom.
Chicken wire is great to use for kitchen baskets where you want to store produce.
Even old and rusty chairs, found in the woods, can be saved with a little elbow grease!
It was easy to makeover these old shop lockers using a galvanized paint method.
Old Christmas tins make wonderful decorative craft storage when wrapped in twine.
A step ladder and an old crate combined make a fun and unique side table!
Wrap a plain glass vase in a grain sack for an interesting look.
13. Hallway Board And Batten Project and Makeover
The “boards” used on this hallway project were actually vintage yardsticks!

This past year had also been a very busy year with wedding projects, with two daughters getting married the same year! If you or someone you know is getting married, you may want to check out my wedding blog at Something Borrowed for all kinds of inspiration and wedding diy projects.
