Rustic Coffee Bar

Rustic Coffee Bar

Hi Friends, and Happy Saturday! Today, we are sharing our fun, Rustic Coffee Bar with all of you. This is a piece that that we designed ourselves to fill a NEED in our home, and has made our life so much EASIER! And as most of you know, with a family of 6 we are always looking for ways to get organized and help to save time, and this coffee bar was it!

Like most COFFEE and TEA LOVERS, we have way too many varieties and packets lying around, as well as about a million mugs that were taking up precious cabinet space in our kitchen. So, Patrick and I put our thinking caps on and started working on a design for a coffee bar.Continue reading

Hi Friends! Here is a brand new piece that we just finished for one of our wonderful clients, Laura! She wanted an ECLECTIC piece that she could use to hang coats and keys on in her entryway. She chose a solid wood backing, which we built using tongue and groove flooring planks. We then added a collection of knobs that feature both cast iron and glass. They give this piece a RUSTIC, ELEGANT, ANTIQUE feel. (There are additional cup hooks along the bottom for keys to hang.)Continue reading

( We love it so much, that we are on the hunt to find something in our home to use this finishing technique on.)

It always amazes us what a little stain, paint, and glaze can do…Continue reading

drawer and knob

This is one of our drawer fronts and our knobs. I have a thing for heavy cast iron knobs and pulls. They bring a bit of masculinity to a piece, while the scroll work on the face plate keeps it somewhat feminine. It just goes to show that opposites do go well together!

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Happy Friday, Friends! We are back with another great DIY project for y’all! And as always, it is very cost effective and time friendly. Depending upon paint drying times, it should not take more than a few hours to make. We were able to pull together our material list from scrap lumber pieces, paint, and wire left over from previous projects. But you could easily find all of these materials at your local hardware store without breaking the bank.

This design came out of my own desperate need of somewhere to organize and store my hanging earrings and necklaces. I had a very small jewelry box that I would typically cram all of my jewelry into. But after many years, it became obvious that this was no longer a working option. Every time I would go to pull out a particular piece of jewelry, I would get a crazy, tangled ball of jewelry that looked like this….Continue reading
