Wood slabs are most commonly used as counters or tables to give the furniture some character. Live edge slabs are especially popular because they can really make a room feel alive. There are plenty of ways to liven up a room without adding a table or counter, though. These completely unique uses of wood slabs prove that there are tons of ways to add the rustic charm of wood slabs to any room. Whether an exotic wood slab or domestic, these creative ideas are beautiful touches to a room or home.
