Farmhouse Style DIY Decor Made With Salvaged Wood |

A few years ago, I made an Old-Fashioned Swing out of salvaged wood.

On cool summer mornings when the birds are chirping, it’s the most relaxing thing in the world to pretend I’m a kid again, without a care in the world, and swing to my heart’s content.

I looked out my front door at it a few days ago, and it inspired me to make an indoor version of the swing.

Instead of hanging from a tree, the mini version is a rope shelf that hangs on the wall.


It is an easy project that’s perfect for the beginner.

Only a few tools are needed to make it – a saw to cut the wood to the desired length, and a drill to cut the holes for the rope.

The only supplies I had to buy were two ceiling hooks and some rope.

Pallet wood planks had the perfect rustic look I wanted for my shelf.

I just gave it a dry-brushed coat of paint, which accented the wonderful rough texture of the wood.

The photo on the shelf is the view down my country road that I see when I’m sitting on my swing.

I love the view so much and have taken photos of it in every season of the year.  [You can see them HERE.]

Now I can enjoy the view with the photo sitting on my farmhouse swing rope shelf!


The farmhouse swing shelf is similar to the Floating Pallet Wood Shelf I made that hangs from the ceiling.

These are just a few of the projects I’ve made with salvaged wood, but there are many more!
