Nature offers us a wide range of elements that we can use for home, office, or even business decoration: trunks, branches, sticks, pineapples, tree barks are some of the materials. But today we will only focus on the transformation of furniture with wooden trunks and dry branches.
We could see them for the first time, in the decoration of the walls of the most bohemian and eco-friendly stores in the world, to later dress the lounges and rooms of the most beautiful hotels and boutiques. Thanks to their robustness, they can be used like any other furniture and thus be able to turn any place into a much warmer, natural space with a bohemian air.
Today we practice more recycling and DIY, in this post, we bring you incredible ideas that you can recreate with a little creativity and a couple of dry branches or trunks. Are you ready? Let’s get to work!

If you want you can leave them natural or paint them with varnish, this will also make them easier to clean. You can also add a touch of color to match your sofa, they are super simple!
2. To hang clothes
The finest branches and tree trunks can be used as clothes racks or even accessories such as bags or hats. You can also place a thicker, firmer branch as a rack to put your clothes on for the week.
3. Side table

With small trunks, you can make original candlesticks, lamps, or candle holders to place on your coffee table or side table. Take a look at these proposals that range from the simplest to the most structured.
