Natural Driftwood for a Spa Like Bathroom

Adding natural driftwood to the bathroom helps create a relaxing spa like retreat!

How about a suspended driftwood screen? Designed and created by Susan Castor for a beach front home in Texas, featured on Apartment Therapy.

Short pieces of driftwood were drilled with holes and strung with wire. Each end of the chain is fixed to a board anchored to the floor or ceiling.

There's a number of functional things you can do with driftwood too, such as Using a Large Piece of Driftwood as a rack, like in this picture. Via Martha Stewart.

Then, of course, there is the driftwood mirror idea! Many of you love the Sunburst Driftwood Mirror, including me. Not so practical for the bathroom. But check out this statement mirror, featured in Domino (The Book of Decorating).

driftwood wall rack
This and the next idea comes from Marza, an Etsy shop. A sweet driftwood wall rack.

And the cutest driftwood medicine cabinet!

driftwood in vase
Or don't think about function. Just display a bundle of natural driftwood in a vase. This spa like bathroom comes from Design New England.

The bathroom is the perfect place for driftwood it can stand the dampness, and constant temperature changes. Love these all!

Some wonderful ways to decorate with driftwood. I think a little bit goes a long way though...not sure about the screen. But I sure get some great ideas!
