My Dad makes stuff.
His jet boat his senior year in shop class.
Oh, the house. A source of angst & immense pride.
And absolutely beautiful woodwork.
He made the most amazing raised paneling throughout the entire house. Very intricate.
He loves wood.
So being that I am his daughter, I inherited the gene. But somewhere it got morphed a bit. While I am in awe of the work he has done in the house, it's not my style. I like my wood old & worn in.
So when I saw this earlier today on Design*Sponge, I knew I had to share it with you!
This furniture is from koff designs and is made from reclaimed & recycled wood! I want one! (go to their site for even more pieces!)
I'm not a big fan of pristine & I love to imagine the history and stories that got a piece of wood to it's current state. I love when it's been worn absolutely smooth. Plus, it's nice not to have to worry about messing up the table with a 1 & 3 year-old running around. Any dings would just add to it's charm & keep the story going!
AND!! Ever since seeing this pallet bed over at Ashley Ann's (this whole room makes me swoon!), I have become increasingly enamored with furniture made from pallets!
I happen to have daily access to as many pallets as I can carry. . .OK, more than that. I think I can only carry 1. . .and know for a fact that at least 1, if not 2 pallet beds will be added to a certain room in my house in the coming weeks. ( We've out grown the crib as demonstrated here. ) These pieces, however, make me want to continue on with the theme.
How many pallet derived pieces do you think I can have in my house before it starts looking like a junk yard?
