DIY Home Decorating Ideas – Wood Grain Trend

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I’ve recently started looking for an apartment to rent so I’ve been extra inspired by ways to decorated your home. Here are a few inspirational home decorating ideas I’ve recently run across that I wouldn’t mind using in my own home.
Wood grain is a huge trend lately. So exploit it’s versatility and use it rooms that are shared between the guys and the girls!

I use Pebeo Porcelaine Paint Pens.)

  1. I love the coffee table done in twigs/wood!

  2. I love the dinner plate idea! You’ve just opened up a whole new world for me 🙂 – plain plates better watch out now!

  3. Me too. That is such a unique creation. It doesn’t fail to accentuate the house, as I can imagine.
