So you’ve been poring through Pinterest or Apartment Therapy, you want your house to look like it skipped out of a magazine. You painted your walls white, you bought white sheets; you even bought a couple of mason jars from Shoprite to line up on your shelf. But you don’t have a shelf, you don’t have any furniture at all. Maybe you DM-d that cool furniture company on Instagram. Their prices near gave you a heart attack. So, you return home every day to your pallet bed and unpacked boxes.
Well, P’s here to the rescue!
Maybe not. But I was looking through Pinterest the other day and I saw some really minimalist wooden furniture that could turn a space around from bare to sophisticated. So, here are some designs you can show to Carpenter Mutiu that works out of the open shed down the street, if you need to furnish your space or are just looking for some new new. Carpenter Mutiu probably charges a tenth of the big guys – you’ll be saving your wallet while patronizing the local small business. These would be hard to botch up, and even if the finish isn’t perfect – that’s not a problem, just get your rustic on!
Disclaimer: The price of wood covers a wide wide range dependent on the type of wood, so you want to see all the options available before deciding.
First thing, make some floating shelves, will ya? A slab of sturdy wood on some nice angle brackets would go such a long way. These are really simple to make. A floating shelf, high or low, or somewhere in between could be put to different uses. See:
If at this point, you’re starting to trust Carpenter Mutiu a bit more, how about taking it to the next level? Let him make some storage furniture for you. These maybe require a bit more time, but look very straightforward.
I really hope someone gets inspired to go out and build. Good luck!
