Watch out for splinters and nails. You'll need to make sure the wood is properly sanded so splinters won't be an issue. When using wood collected from a demolition, make sure to carefully remove any old nails. The pieces will need to be planed and cut to the desired shapes and sizes also. Unless you have the right tools and machines, this prep work should be done by a professional finish carpenter.
Elegant Moldings. When a client's home has historic character, I never want to cover it up. Shades mounted inside the window frame, paired with eye‐catching trim, allow light control without feeling fussy. If you don't have historic molding, a window is a great place to add some. It's a smaller task than lining a whole ceiling, and you can do it in just one room.
I can't get enough of this fun and fantastic green‐tinged yellow – I've used similar shades of it in small doses all over my new house. It looks supermodern set against shades of gray and pure white. Keep in mind that if you use a vibrant hue in the back of a shelf or niche, you'll want to keep any items stored there neat and tidy, as everyone's eye will be immediately drawn to that area. Also, when you have a lot of cool gray in a space, think about including some warm elements, such as a wood floor or wood furniture, to help it feel warm and inviting.
