Yesterday over at Design Sponge, we ran across this fabulous tutorial for jute weaving. We love the look, but don't think it is strictly limited to stools. After the jump you'll find 10 places in your home to put this natural look to use in your own space without spending big bucks for your makeover!
As most of you have guessed by now, we're pretty big on hitting up our local thrift stores, estate sales and auctions for goods that might work in our own home. This woven treatment could be a great alternative to give something a boost of natural looks that go hand in hand with "previous-owner" distressing. Make sure to head over and read the full tutorial on weaving with jute, it's not as complicated as it looks and has great results. Here's where we'd put the technique to use in our own home:
• Empty Bottles or Vases
• Old Stumps For Seating
• Indoor or Outdoor Planters
• Side Tables (Hello Lack Makeover!)
• Mirror Frames
• Benches, Chairs or Other Seating
• Small Trashcans
• Large Bowls (for display)
• Exposed Air Ducts in Loft Spaces
In your own home, what do you have that could use a jute makeover? Share your ideas in the comments below!
