50 Driftwood Inspired Living Spaces For Men

Maybe you have just moved to the coast, have invested in a beach hut or need some beach themed décor for your man cave. Or perhaps you just want to add some cool driftwood style furniture to your living room, bedroom, hallway, porch or bathroom to give it some character.

We have combed the web for some inspirational décor designs which have driftwood themed items. The following furniture and accent décor items will add a natural and beach-like vibe to your home. But, you don’t need to have a completely beach themed place; driftwood furniture and décor items can be added to any kind of living space, from mid-century modern to art décor, you can add any of these following items to them and still remain in-keeping with the dominant style of your place.

To get you started with our drift wood theme article, I bought some drift wood from Amazon (which is an outrageous purchase for something that can literally be found on the floor) and decided to glue, hammer, swear and mould myself my very own driftwood décor item, see below my DIY drift wood décor. The best thing about DIYing your own driftwood décor is that if it looks a bit rough around the edges, well it’s supposed too…. It’s rustic.

I thought about making a DIY driftwood candle holder, but then I realised how embarrassing it would be explaining to the firefighters how the house burned down and reconsidered; So, I made an ambiguous decor / photo holder.

The process was simple: 1, buy some wood from Amazon; 2, saw off a base from some old pallet I found; 3, sand up the edges so it doesn’t scratch you; 4, drill some holes suitable for the driftwood to be wedges into; 5, sand it up again and if you’re feeling fancy give it some wood stain; 6, get some superglue and dab it in the holes and wedge the drift wood in it; then finally jam some paperclips into the natural cracks in the wood to peg photos too, voila!
