Another awesome home decor trend is coming your way. Check out how amazing cerused wood furniture is and how you can easily add it to your home!
Hello, everyone! I have another awesome decor trend to share with you guys. This one is kind of fantastic, and I can’t wait for you all to see the pictures I found! Cerused oak furniture is great and it just looks super cool. It’s got that mid-century vibe, yet it goes great with nearly every type of decor, from farmhouse to beach house. Today, I’ll be going over what exactly cerused wood is, why cerused wood accents are so cool, and how you can add it into your current decor. Are you ready? Well then, keep scrolling and let’s talk about cerused wood decor.
Cerused wood, or cerused oak, is created by rubbing the wood with a limed wax paste to create these gorgeous lines. Now, it can be done at home, but you need to be super careful with it! It’s been made for centuries; first using a toxic paste, but then settling with the liming wax as it is much safer to use. Like I said, you can DIY this yourself, just be smart about it and do your research.
Cerused wood furniture can make a pretty great mid-century statement piece, but it goes with many other home decor styles as well. We’ll go over some of that later. But for now, let’s just look at the pretty cerused furniture. I showed you a couple of light kitchen islands in the featured image and this brown black limed oak dresser. How about seeing something in a truer black?

Cerused oak furniture comes in many different shades and varieties. Anything from cabinets to tables to kitchen islands and even walls can be made with cerused oak. I don’t know about you, but I am very partial to these dark end tables here. How awesome would these be in a living room or even as bedside tables? I can’t get over the contrast between the dark wood and the pale grain lines. Normally it’s the opposite, and I love how it looks like a negative image.
I would love a coffee table made out of this! I think it would look great in my living room with my dark shelves, navy couch, and jewel toned accents. These would make a nice, dark base for some of my colored glass. You can also make limed oak furniture in colors, but I thought it would be nice to stick with the basic cream to black tones. Now, let’s see how we can add cerused wood into our decor.
If you needed a reason to want a super cool wall, check this out! Cerused wooden beams, ceiling, and wall! I love how it helps create a great farmhouse look in this space, but with a mid-century twist. So wonderful. And can I say how much I love exposed beams anyway, and then they used this super cool wood to do it?
Sometimes wooden ceilings and walls can bring a place down and make it darker, but this light cerused wood really brightens up the space. I didn’t know it could do that, but it does. I wonder how this dining room would look if a darker cerused wood would have been used? Food for thought. Also, that light fixture is absolutely amazing. It really adds to the vibe of the rest of the room.
Now this is what I’m talking about! There is so much cerused oak furniture in this kitchen. Not only is the island made from cerused wood, but the cabinets and the table are too. It’s truly gorgeous, and I love how it’s got a coastal feel with the wicker additions.
I did say you could use other decor styles, and coastal is one of my favorites to combine with this wood. It’s super easy to do. Wicker elements, pops of blues and greens, and some bowls of fruit help give that tropical coastal vibe. If you really want to go all out, add mother of pearl, shell, and coral elements.
This is probably my second favorite cerused wood look. Hello, gorgeous industrial elements! So much copper, and that vintage looking stove is making me swoon. If I was to recreate a cerused kitchen, this would be it. Mainly because of that stove, because I love stoves that look like they popped out of a different century. Adding some industrial and steampunk elements to a kitchen full of cerused oak cabinets makes a pretty great statement in my book.
And last but not least, I bet you didn’t know you could put cerused wood in the bathroom. Well, you totally can! Also, this bathroom has additions of blue that definitely help with a coastal chic look. You could take it even further by adding in some shells, a mother of pearl bowl or jar, or even some other coastal elements. Can you picture it? This wood was definitely made for coastal decor.
