On A Custom Roll!

Yes, I am back.  With more on Custom Furniture!  

You want a Farm Table?  Of course you do ... but your space is limited ... or you have a really long room to fill.  Okay, what size do you need?

This precious family of four ... don't let them fool you! This Lady entertains the rest of her family on a regular basis.  There are generally no less than 8 people at this table a night.  And on Sunday's ... well, pull up another chair!

My New England friend, truly a mis-placed Southern Lady.  She was born up "here" ... but will find her true home in the South someday!  I have no doubt!

 She makes me smile any time I get to spend with her and working with her on bringing her family together at this table was a project I adored.

Farm tables can be found in all sorts of finishes and sizes ... but once again, when you are looking for that particular size and making certain it is Exactly what you want ... call me! 

And you might want pine with a walnut finish?  Or perhaps just waxed for a more natural look ... Or maybe Cherry! Here is just a sampling of the choices ... 

This 8 foot table out of reclaimed pine and beautifully distressed finished "black" windsor chairs ... are truly just a phone call away!! 

And I must tell you ... don't let the word "custom" send you running.  This is not always another term for "outrageously expensive"!  In fact ... sometimes you might even find that you get exactly what you want for less than you thought!!

I am still on the Custom Wagon ... Wanna Ride?



The Need for Custom!

Last week on the One Room Challenge ... from here on referred to as ORC ... I mentioned that I would have a week of posts on custom furniture.  

You asked, so here it is!

As a designer and as a shopper, I am increasingly frustrated by the fact I can't find what I need in the right size or shape.  It is like when you are in need of a plain white t-shirt.  Have you ever been able to just find it?  So.. I build it.

Today we are taking a look at a custom headboard and armoire I did ( I love saying I DID this ... really I have the resources to GET it Done!) for a teenage boy's room.

Lucky boy got some fabulous furniture ... 

The room isn't really "styled" ... the family was on vacation last week when I went to snap photos and "boy" was staying at a friend's house ... I just asked him to please run by and make his bed!!

He did a pretty okay job ... wouldn't you say?

Yes, you can find armoires everywhere ... but can you find one 84" tall and 48" wide made from re-claimed pine?  And solid, no veneers, and the shelves where you want them, and the exact amount of drawers?

And the cool, chunky hardware that suits the "boy's" taste?

And a headboard to fit the Queen - Extra Long mattress, because "boy" is TALL?

And then of course we threw in some Industrial Deer chicness!!

Calling it "custom" seems to scare some people ... Don't be scared ... venture in and you will find that you can get EXACTLY what you want !

Are you ready to go custom? I'll be bringing you more tomorrow ...
