Crazy about this look and have attempted it..always seem to get stuck on the execution of attaching it to the wall. Typically, branches have little pieces that poke out in the wrong places, and obviously unsightly nails are well, unslightly and really detract from the organic vibe these create...Any suggestions? Thanks so much. Love this!

Perfect white - What is the wall/trim color?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Interview: Life in the Fun Lane!
Who knew some driftwood sticks could be transformed into such a beautiful sculpture? This is a great example of Holly's French Country meets beach simplicity.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Designs for Living: Documenting a Well Traveled Life
Nature provides some of the best travel mementos available. This trio of wooden branches could possibly be a reminder of a romantic beachside proposal.
Lily Gahagan added this to Best Ways with Branches
Take another look at fallen boughs from a storm or driftwood; they could become a unique wall installation.
Shawn Gauthier added this to The Joy of Spring: Bring the Outside Inside
Driftwood is one of the easiest, most inexpensive ways to bring the outside in. You can hang them on the walls, prop them in the corners, use them as curtain rods; you name it. Best part? All it costs is a trip to the beach. (The whole family will enjoy that shopping spree!)
Becky Harris added this to Super Natural Design
I love the way Holly from Life in the Fun Lane has transformed these long sticks into a piece of artwork. She was kind enough to share how to hang them when one of our readers wondered how to accomplish this look: "Driftwood usually has all the little knobs and knots worn down to a smooth surface, which helps. It also takes some playing to rotate the branches to find the side with the most points touching the wall. Once we figured the general layout, one of us held the wood up while the other person marked the wall where the branch physically touched. We then anchored medium-sized L brackets at those points, set the wood on the brackets and screwed the wood to the brackets as well. It is a bit tricky and it does make a big difference in how flat/smooth your wood is! The good news with driftwood is that it is pretty lightweight after drying."
Holly Baker, furniture painter extraordinaire and the blogger behind Life in the Fun Lane, created a coastal composition of sticks on the wall.Wondering how to hang sticks like this on your wall? It's been explained on our Questions Board.
Edit, edit, edit!Take one more look at those inspiration images and this time, be ruthlessly discerning. It is so much better to end up with a handful of images that perfectly capture your style rather than a bin full of so-so examples. That said, no one image is likely to encompass everything you want, and that's good. The unique way you combine things is what puts your personal stamp on your home.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Wall Art to Catch Your Eye
Simple tree branches not only add interest to this space, they're readily available and inexpensive. I love that each one is unique, yet they align so well.
7. Make use of beachcombing finds. Giving driftwood, sea glass, smooth stones and shells a home by the front door is a wonderful way to welcome summer.Try this: Attach long pieces of driftwood to the wall using L-brackets and screws for a one-of-a-kind display. Borrow a few hurricane lanterns from the deck to ramp up the beachy vibe.
