It’s been a while since I have posted… but I have some new news! I have been working on a large and exciting project. Once I make a bit more headway, I will showcase it.

In the meantime, I have a few new products that I pumped out of my reclaimed wood shop and I would like to share them.

First, I had a customer order three custom made reclaimed wood framed succulent art boxes. Each vertical box is 18″ x 18″ and the customer is going to hang them all side by side to look as if they were one piece. I really enjoyed making these frames and I think they came out really nice.

Next item is another reclaimed wood modern bench. This was made via my etsy shop similar to the first one I made a few months ago. Here is a shot of it:

The next item recently created is a reclaimed wood vertical succulent wall with beautiful frame:

Newest item out of the workshop is a re-purposed wood bench stained with a semi-transparent stain. The semi-transparent stain lets the look of the wood come though as well as any imperfections underneath.

From WordPress to Print!

Last night I was grocery shopping at my local Ralphs Supermarket and while walking down the magazine isle, an issue caught my eye. I quickly remembered that I was contacted by a publisher a  few weeks ago to print one of my blog entries. I grabbed the magazine and flipped through it and sure enough, I found the entry!

A publisher for a Gardening Magazine emailed me letting me know they found my WordPress blog, loved the photos and the tutorial and wanted to publish part of it. I, of course, agreed and couldn’t have been more excited.

What was produced was better than I expected! They even threw in a tiny bio with my name and website!

(I scanned the magazine in, so the quality may not be up to snuff)

Re-Purposed Wood Coffee Table

Hello! I have been a bit busy with a major project coming up so I haven’t had much posting time. The good news is that the impending project will be the sole subject of this blog for a few months and hopefully it will be interesting. :)

Once again, I produced another reclaimed wood coffee table. This one was stained with a nice dark semi-transparent stain. The outcome of this table was so beautiful that I had to make one for myself.

Here are some photos:

Shabby Chic Design

I have noticed a great way to get the shabby chic look in building reclaimed wood furniture.

Behr Semi-Transparent Wood stain is great for accomplishing this. I have used three different colors and it gives a nice tint while keeping the original beauty of the wood.

Here are some colors and examples:

As you can see the stain gives a nice tint but you don’t lose the beauty of the flaws in reclaimed wood furniture.

Cheers!

The newest piece of work out of my shop is a custom reclaimed wood side table. This is mainly built out of Douglas Fir salvaged from house framing and re-purposed here into a beautiful table.

The finish on the table is Behr Semit-Transparent Wood Stain, Cape Cod Gray with two coats of satin polyurethane.

Next week I will post a quick DIY for these. If you have the tools and can make them, they are a really nice accent in a home.

Succulent Wall Art Installation

I was recently contacted by Elana Joelle of EJH Brand to help her put together a vision she has for the California Gift Show.

Elana will be exhibiting her products and wanted to create a very large vertical succulent wall piece and attach her brand letters to it. The reclaimed wood succulent wall planter will be 6′ wide, 3′ tall and it will hang on the wall.

Normally I would build the frame and plant the succulents. This process takes a few weeks for the succulents to fully root. We have a time crunch however, so I had to come up with a way to get this thing vertical within 2 weeks and have it weigh less than 40 lbs…

We are in progress of putting the piece together and it will be up for display this weekend at the California Gift Show.

In the meantime I wanted to show some teaser photos of us putting it together:
