DIY faux wood beams

Posted by Amy Patterson on 6/5/15 2:29 PM

There’s something about the look of exposed wood beams in a home…they give an air of elegance with the perfect amount of rustic cottage feel. But authentic, antique, rustic wood beams are crazy expensive – and while they’re gorgeous to look at, who really has the money to spend on them?

So, what if I told you that you could get that same look for a fraction of the price? You. Totally. Can.

We found this nifty how-to on the White Buffalo Styling Co. website.

The trick with this DIY is using framing lumber, and staining the lumber to a shade that will acent your room. In this case, the homeowner wanted to pair the beams with the floors and create a stark contrast with the white walls and dark wood (#NailedIt). 

The end result of this project is stunning, and adds a new rustic and classic focal point to any room.

The project itself is a more intensive DIY for sure, but we think it's totally worth it.
