If you are looking to add a little bit of country to your home in the form of the way that your home is decorated, you have made a good choice. Country crafts for home decor are among the most practical cost-wise and the simplest for even the beginner designer to put together herself. Country crafts for home decor are generally classified by how large the craft project will be. For example, you will most likely have a lot of good ideas for the types of accessories that you can make in a craft, but may struggle when it comes to coming up with craft ideas for your larger pieces. This article will present country craft ideas that you can use to decorate your home starting with the furniture and making your way across the walls of whatever room you are decorating.
The main items that you have in a room will do the most to convey a particular style. For example, if you are decorating a guest room in the country style, the main items of furniture that will create a country feel would be the bed and the dressers within the room. On the main floor you can also create one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that can do amazing things when it comes to adding to the country feel of the home. One of the first things that you should look for in a piece of furniture or be willing to do on your own are distressing and painting. You can take wooden furniture items and paint flowers, distress landscape paintings, sand corners that have been painted, etc. Damaged pieces can be used to your advantage as they will most likely be marked down from their original prices. Those damages will only add to the distressed, country feel of the piece. Other suggestions for making your furniture pieces take on the country crafts feel is to antique them by using a variety of paining techniques or to simply buy or use an antique piece and add a centerpiece or other painted decoration to give it the country feel that you are looking for. Many people still have their mother’s or grandmother’s antique sewing table and may be wondering how to make good use of it. One idea is to use the removable insert that covers the machine as a canvas. You can paint a floral picture, a globe, or any other old world type painting to give your table a country craft look with the appeal of aged furniture with a cost that is next to nothing.
