Painting isn't a big deal, unfortunately most people think a rustic look is created by adding barn wood or other wood treatments to the wall. While it's true, barn wood walls make a stunning addition to a country theme, it's not the only way to achieve a rustic effect.
Barn Wood Draperies - A Wood Look With Cloth
Barn wood drapes come in a variety of styles and designs. You can see additional choices when you visit the barn wood drapery photo.
If your room has a large picture window or a sliding door, the drapes will add a impactful rustic feel to the space when they're closed.
However, you don't need a window to put drapes up. By putting drapes on a feature wall that doesn't have a window, you create the illusion of more space while adding to the country feel.
In fact, you can have something behind those drapes: Behind the drapes, go ahead and feature a faux window or 3D country scenic wall decal. Open the drapes and you've created a third dimension.
Faux Wood Area Rugs - Rugs that Look Like Hardwood
The above rug has a rubber backing and thus may not have the feel of a traditional area rug. Think of it as a giant mouse-pad, however you can put a piece of carpet foam underneath to increase the low pile. However, not to be fooled, it is quite soft to begin with.
A good spot for this rug is under a coffee table. With the light barn wood drapes and a matching area rug, all you need to add are rustic accessories; pillows, throw blankets, trinkets, and rustic lamps, and you've completed the theme without opening a can of paint.
Have fun with your paint-free redesign.
