Wall decoration with wooden materials

The second life for old furniture

The old grandmother’s chest will serve as a bedside table, in which you can put things that you rarely use. Such furniture will not just decorate your house, but also save money in the wallet.
Light pastel colors
Choose light, pleasant shades from which your eyes do not get tired. Give up a catchy red or screaming neon flowers. They interfere with resting, concentrating on themselves. For the bedroom, you can choose a pale blue color. Warm tones are suitable for the kitchen. The living room looks good pastel-green.
As accessories, use simple, bright things. For example, painting an ordinary jar that will serve as a vase for wildflowers. At the entrance, instead of a purchased path, bed a colored lace rug.
Village style is a great choice for those who want to be closer to nature. Such a design will not only make it possible to refresh the country interior, but will also allow you to create a spade with your own hands, which will fit perfectly into the cozy atmosphere of a country house and will become the subject of your pride.
