Today I thought I'd show off a project from our sister page, Artisan Built-ins.
This is a set of bookshelves in an offset modern pattern, with integrated brass lights to showcase the books. To the right is a built-in windowseat with a flip-top lid to allow for storage.
It really transformed the room, which started as a blank canvas.
We designed these for the homeowner based on a previous design which we did for another customer. The uprights on both bookcases are staggered to avoid the "tic tac toe" look which you see in traditional shelving.
We actually finished these a few months ago, but this is the first time we've seen photos of it with the books, and the custom cushions on the windowseat. It looks like a great place to relax with a good novel.
If you've always wanted a library of your own, give us a call. We'll help you take your room from "Blah" to "Beautiful."
I have a perfectly good indoor workshop, but on days like this you won't catch me in it.
Need someone with all the tools to get your job done? I've got them.
Check out this Instagram-worthy office which one of my customers recently set up in his backyard shed. More specifically, look at the rustic ceiling I installed for him!
My client is a pretty handy guy himself, so he was able to install the shiplap walls and the rustic floor boards. However, he knew that putting up ceiling paneling can be a tough job, especially if you want long, wide boards like these.
That's when he called me... and since I knew I would need an extra pair of hands to wrangle those boards, I also called in Ricardo Blanco, one of the carpenters in our network of craftsmen.
It's always fun to work with such a talented person. The work goes so much faster.
We also installed a modern ceiling fan which plays nicely against the textured wood. The result is a stylish office that might make a person look forward to Monday mornings.
If you've got a project that's a little out of reach, why not call your local Asheville handymen? We'll get it done for you.
Yesterday I showed off some pics of the furniture assembly which I recently did for Anne Willis at De La Terre Skincare. She saw the blog and sent some updated pictures. The room still looks great, and as you can see, her skincare products look great on the new shelving.
Thanks for sharing, Anne!
I can help you make your office beautiful, too. Call me today for interior painting, furniture assembly and more.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Anne Willis at De La Terre Skin Care. To say that she is an entrepreneur is something of an understatement; she takes holistic skin care to a whole new level.
De La Terre Skincare is featured in several hospitals and holistic medical clinics, where the products have been approved and accepted by physicians. The company packaging reflects the integrity and care that goes into each formula.
With that in mind, she ordered a set of display furniture for her showroom. Of course, when it comes to buying furniture online, there's a big difference between what you see and what you get.
Fortunately, I love to assemble furniture. (It's like a puzzle.) First I reviewed the directions carefully and laid all of the pieces out. Then I assembled the shelves on the floor per the instructions. When they were finished, we carefully tipped them up against the wall. Voila!
De La Terre Skincare offers workshops where they teach attendees to care for their skin, so Anne also had me assemble a large conference table where they can gather to discuss the treatments. It all turned out beautifully. The clean lines of the furniture she chose will set off the products well, and it looks good with the warm tones of the room.
Do you need help assembling a piece of furniture? If you live in Asheville or Weaverville, give me a call. I'll be glad to help.
