If you have a rustic house and you still need to install the lighting fixtures, here you will find good ideas that you can use. Even in a modern environment, you can add these rustic track lighting fixtures, which will make a beautiful contrast and give a unique look to your room. Usually, when we talk about a rustic decoration, we refer to furniture and decorative objects that have had a poor processing, we could say that they are in a more “natural” state than other furniture. For example, a rustic chair will have rough edges, with a little finished look. This beautiful furniture are usually handmade, which adds a touch of originality.
The first option we propose is to use horns or antlers as a candelabrum or lamp holder. You can buy horns at any antique shop or flea market. Once you have your poles well clean, you only have to make the holes to place your candles, or install a tube to place the screen of your lamp. If you do not know how to do the installation for rustic track lighting, leave the task to an expert. If you find some wood trunk or twisted and eroded branch over time, you also have a good base for your lamp. You can even add branches to the lamp you already have in the room to give it a beautiful finish. Before placing the branches to your lamp you should give them a coat of varnish.
A simpler material to get yet, they are dry and resistant leaves that have fallen from some tree. Embadurna the leaves that you have collected with shellac and paint them of different colors, or if you prefer, all of the same color. Cover the screen of your lamp by gluing one by one all the leaves. It is a super economic way to transform a boring lamp into a rustic and original artifact.
These are the simplest ways to make a lamp or a rustic candlestick, but you can use any old object you have in your house to make a beautiful rustic track lighting. An old kerosene lantern, a small wooden wheel, an old vase for milk, and especially parts and objects that belonged to boats lends themselves to become lighting artifacts. If you do not have any of this at home, go out to browse the flea markets and antique houses, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye.
