Exploring The World Of Handcrafted Furniture Construction

Hi there! The name is Nicky and I'm here to present the fascinating world of furniture construction to you. Modern furniture comes from a long line of handcrafted items that have recently fallen out of favor. I grew up in a quirky household where we created all of our own furniture by hand. I have fond memories of shaping wood on the lathe for table and couch legs before I could even ride a bike. Today I continue to create furniture using all of the skills I learned from my awesome parents. I would like to share the knowledge I've collected over the years with you to help expand this interesting hobby. My main goal is to see handmade furniture secure its place in the marketplace. I hope you learn all you need to know about techniques, tools and building materials to create signature pieces you'll love for lifetime.

3 Rustic Ideas for Remodeling Your Master Bathroom

If you favor the idea of rustic home decor, you might decorate in this style throughout your home. When it comes time to hire a remodeling contractor to focus on your master bathroom, however, there's no need to feel overwhelmed. While it's true that the sleek porcelain surfaces and shiny chrome accents in the average bathroom are anything but rustic, there are a number of ways that your contractor can turn this modern-looking space into a rustic one that fits the rest of your home. Pretty soon, you'll find that you can't wait to retreat in this rustic space each day. Here are some ideas to include in your remodeling project.

Slate Flooring

Natural slate flooring will instantly lend its rustic feel to any space, including your master bathroom. Slate flooring is available in a variety of colors, including gray hues and rusty hues. This means that you can select the style of slate that suits your personal tastes and even matches your walls and towels. An added perk is that radiant floor heating can be installed under slate flooring, and there are few rooms throughout your home that heated floors are more appealing than in your bathroom—you'll never have to suffer a cold bathroom floor first thing in the morning again.

Claw-Foot Tub

Having your remodeling contractor tear out your bathtub and replace it with an antique-style claw-foot tub provides a rustic, old-school feel to your master bathroom. Cast iron tubs are visually appealing, but their weight—especially when full of water—can be an issue for your floors. Instead, find a modern tub made of lightweight materials that is made to look like cast iron. As an added perk, the open space beneath this tub gives you the feeling of having more space in the bathroom, which is especially handy if the bathroom is small.

Barn Board Walls

Barn board walls can transform the look of your master bathroom and give it a cozy, rustic feel. You don't need to worry about finding authentic barn boards—lumber and home supply stores will often carry lumber that has been painted to look like aged barn board. This grayish hue can pair well with your slate floor, whether you look for matching or complementary colors. Your remodeling contractor will also talk to your about accents that can be added to the barn board, such as rustic, warm wall sconces instead of harsh overhead lighting.
