Custom Distressed Bedroom Furniture

Feminine, Classy Bedroom

This bedroom pictured below needed a major upgrade! Woodmaster Woodworks was there to help. The owner wanted to do a shiplap accent wall where the bed goes; we LOVE shiplap, so we were definitely on board. The color is a grayish-blue and it truly just gives the entire room the coziest vibe, and makes you want to lay in bed all day and watch Netflix! The whole feel is very serene, and that's exactly what your bedroom should be - it should be a retreat. 

Now, this photo gives you a closer look at what we did to the owner's bed side furniture. The night stands were stained to begin with, so we decided to paint them a similar color to the shiplap wall, and give it a distressed look. The end result is just fabulous; they look brand new but homey at the same time. The homeowner's decorations really tied the whole look together. The delicate pinks with the crisp white comforter makes us want to move right in! 

Switching sides: this is the view from the bed. Woodmaster Woodworks created this custom built-in unit for the TV, plenty of shelves, and wait for it.... a dog crate space! Yes - a built-in space for the homeowners dog crate. We absolutely love this idea because now the crate is not sticking out like a sore thumb, and you won't trip over it anymore! Custom cabinetry and carpentry is key if you really want the end product to look original to the home. You cannot even tell that this wasn't built-in from day one. Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoyed! 

Awesome Cabinet Hardware Finds

If you want to update your cabinets or furniture without having to refinish them or buy new ones, updating the hardware is an easy route! We have compiled a list of interesting knobs and pulls for your cabinets and furniture, along with the price and where we found them in case you find something you love. Take a look!

For just $7.92 you can score this beautiful hand-painted ceramic knob from Etsy, here. Because of it's color and pattern, this particular knob would look incredible on a piece of furniture. Try it out on your nightstand or side table in your living room. If you're going for an Americana or even eclectic vibe, this would be a great fit.


This more traditional knob can be found on HardwareResources.com under the Calloway Collection for $3.59. It's item number is 351SN and the finish is "Satin Nickel". We adore the lighter color of this one, as most metal hardware is often a darker color. This would go great with both light and dark cabinets, and it's a much safer choice for kitchen cabinets if you don't want to go too crazy.



This geometric knob can also be found on Esty (here) for $5.55. This is extremely modern and unusual which would really make a statement in your home. If you don't feel comfortable doing something like this in your kitchen, swap out your bathroom hardware for this. The gold touch is very unique. Etsy is a good place to look if you want one-of-a-kind hardware because they're not from chain type stores.



We love this pull that's $19.98 for a set of two from World Market. The metal and glass materials will match anything, and the feminine shape will make cabinets or furniture look absolutely lovely. Hopefully our suggestions have led you in the right direction, and if anything, showed you some good places to look for hardware online. Thanks for reading!

What is this Beautiful Room II?

Work done by Woodmaster Woodworks

For those following Woodmaster Woodworks previous blog post, you are aware that I am following up a small series on decoding interior trim architectural terms that break down a beautiful room. On this post, I have taken another beautiful room with different options than the original post to illustrate more alternatives to incorporate into your home.

French Doors

French doors typically refer to a pair of doors but can be  single. They are a light weight construction door that is primarily composed of glass. The pair in this beautiful room is called a 15 light, referring to the number of panes or glass boxes in the door. These French doors are also adorned with casing trim as previously described on the original post. Coming off the doors, are another style of beautiful wall panel design that again was described in more detail in the previous post.

Arch


An arch is a structure that forms an entrance opening in a curved, pointed, or square shaped design. Not only does it provide structure for support above it, arches offer a timeless classic beauty. Like all other divisions of interior trim, arches offer many different sizes, styles, and adornments in addition to the shape options. The beautiful room picture above shows a traditional style small curved arch with casing. Other examples of arches and additional trim options are pictured below.

The first and second arches are large arches adorned in different trim details but both beautiful. The last arch has recessed panels inlaid into the arch for even more added beauty.

Coffered Ceiling

The last and most stunning part of this beautiful room (in my opinion) is the coffered ceiling. A coffered ceiling is a ceiling that has a recessed panel appearance in multiple box shapes. They are typically square, rectangle, or octagon. They differ greatly in appearance from a tray ceiling that was briefly touched upon in the last blog, which is an inverted appearing ceiling with a solid, universal design rather than the coffered multiple box design.

All of the pictures above are custom ceilings done by Woodmaster Woodworks showing various options for coffered and tray ceilings. The first 3 pictures are coffered ceilings and the last two are tray style ceilings. The first picture illustrates a multiple shape and size coffered design with two tone paint to add depth to your ceiling. The second coffered ceiling shows elaborate trim detail encompassed into a single paint color ceiling. The last coffered ceiling pictured is a flat style design in two tone paint to highlight the ceiling design. Both Tray style ceilings shown are the more layered style. The first picture having a decorative trim inlaid within the inner border of the recess and the second has multiple layers offset with two tone paint colors to add more depth and a paint wall match. Which ever style of custom ceiling and options you prefer to incorporate into your beautiful room, the end result is absolutely gorgeous!

I hope both Beautiful Room blogs have helped to clarify some terminology but most importantly give you inspiration for your home. Regardless of which options appeal to you from both blogs, all are beyond stunning and truly sets any room of your home apart from any other.
