DIY Rustic Log Picture Frames

Everyone will agree that living in a log home is a different experience than living in a conventional stick-built house. Decorating a log home offers challenges that are atypical of most decorating projects.

We choose to live in a log home because we love the look, feel, aroma, color and character of raw wood. Consequently, the decor we seek out is usually a complimentary rustic style.  Nothing says rustic like log furniture and accent pieces crafted from logs, twigs and other natural materials.

Surrounding our favorite photos with bold wooden frames is one of the most popular decor ideas, but finding the right frame can sometimes be difficult. If you are the DIY type, the solution is easy…make it yourself.  Readers of this blog know that I love to spend time in my shop creating furniture for our home. I just wrapped-up a project making three log picture frames and I created a short video to show you how I turn a round log into a rustic piece of art.

If you have built furniture, frames or cabinets for your log home, send them along and I’ll post them online. It would be great if you told us how you made your work of art so that we can all learn from each other. If you want some more details on how I created these frame, see DIY Rustic Log Picture Frames.

  • Anything twig – that’s my mantra. I make lots of rustic twig things for my garden, and one day I’ll have a funky little country house to decorate too. I’ll be watching for more great crafts!

  • We used to build bent willow furniture and had several pieces in our first log home that we built in Montana. Now that we’ve just completed our Alaska log home we’re thinking some nice custom diamond willow furniture would look awesome in it.


  • Rustic Log Picture frames always bring character and style to a Rustic home or cabin… Any Rustic Setting is always fun to decorate. There is so much fun Log Furniture on the Market. And to make it better most of it is Built right here in America.
