THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION, PICTURES WILL CAME LATER, THANKS.
I never wanted to buy furniture because you always have what you pay for right, and if you want good quality you have to pay a certain price! I always try to recycle material. I used to have a coffee table found in the street, garbage for some treasure for other.
So when I moved in my house, I wanted to build an entertainment center, I bought some wood and started the project. I really like the idea of mixing raw material like wood, metal and stone. For this one I also tried to distress the wood, I also use a torch to burn the wood in some places. I did apply a satin varnish over it. The wheels are a necessity, it is made with heavy wood not particle board and veneer, so it is heavy to move around and the cast iron wheels go well with the design.
I also build those two Adirondack chairs a while ago, probably the first thing I build. i know I shouldn’t have paint one in Yellow!!!
Then came the pallet fashion, I drove around the shop to see if they had old pallet they were getting rid off, looking for those with “HT” stamped on the pallet meaning Heat treated, no chemical involved, but then the pallet can have been use to transport chemical, jut use your common sense.
From the pallet I build two coffee table, one for outside on my patio, I build it in few hours, once done I like to apply coconut oil, it protect the wood and give a nice color to the wood.
The other table was from my living room, this one I realized that I needed one, and I build it in 30 min!!! I know I have to try to put a little bit more love in that one, I don’t like the pressure treated wood as legs, I need something else, I keep thinking and An idea just popped up in my head. A friend of mine moved a few years back and she had some hand/foot rail from a bar, and it is Brass pipe, I might be able to use some as leg that could be very cool, I have to dig that idea…
I use pallet to make my inside wall on my patio, and I just love it, same thing coconut oil and that is it.
And the last thing at this moment is the bed headboard. I looked on the internet for inspiration, and decided to include some feature on mine. So there is one light (LED) on each side controlled by his own dimmer switch, there is also that little shelve where you can put your IPhone, IPad or glass of water, or for me empty chocolate plate packaging and on each side of the shelve i put and electrical outlet with USB port. I really loved it, this is very practical while you are in bed it is always hard to get your device with an extension cord, here no need to worry!
