Love rustic farmhouse style centerpieces?

Add some character and warmth to your table with a pretty DIY rustic wood centerpiece box to use as home decor! You can fill it each season with different accessories, mason jars, vases with flowers, etc. I love the look of the stained wood, but you can easily paint or stain it in any color to match your space and personalty!

Start with an 8-foot long piece of 1×6 wood.

This is actually a very simple wood project, promise! I started by visiting The Home Depot, and I found a 1×6 piece of pine wood on clearance for less than $5. I picked up two simple drawer pulls for just a few dollars each there, too. Because I already had wood stain and screws at home, this project came in at about $11!

Supplies Needed

  • 3 pieces cut – 1 x 6 X 22.5″ long
  • 2 pieces cut – 1 x 6 X 7″ long
  • power drill
  • wood screws (We used #8 wood screws 1-1/4”)
  • any desired paint or stain
  • 2 drawer pulls

Directions

1

Cut three pieces the same length, followed by two end pieces.

 

Note: I had them cut at the hardware store, so I didn’t have to at home. While I share my measurements above, you can definitely change those dimensions based on how long you’d like your centerpiece. Before leaving the store, check to see that all of it fits together in case any cuts are off.

2

Start screwing the box together with the bottom and one side piece. Pre-drill for the screws, and then add 3 evenly spaced screws on the bottom of both sides of the box.

3

Once all three sides are screwed together, place the end caps over both sides. Place a screw in each corner.

4

Paint or stain your box as desired. I find it easiest to use a rag to apply the stain. The stain color I’m using is called Dark Walnut by Minwax.

5

Let dry and add drawer pulls to both ends of the box.

6

Fill with jars and accessories and proudly display your new centerpiece!

What a pretty centerpiece perfect for every season!

I love that it adds texture and interest to my table, and I can use it year-round by changing out the seasonal accessories. Plus, it’s something special my husband and I put together for our home!
