There is a common theme throughout my home... Raw wood, old aged wood, new wood, painted wood, etc.
I love a home project... it means more to me when something is handmade. So my bother is a builder (https://www.s2kgroupinc.com) he comes across a lot of great finds... one property last year had an old barn on it. So I asked him to keep an eye out for some good long pieces to make a barn wood valance for my sons nursery. Well, he found some great pieces to use and made a gorgeous dining table. Sadly, there wasn't any left long enough for the valance.
Well, that wasn't going to stop me...when I get my mind set on something it is only a matter of time before I make it happen! I went to Lowes and had the best customer service---> (https://www.lowes.com/pl/Appearance-boards-Lumber-composites-Building-supplies/4294402499) I selected a large and long piece of raw wood to distress and stain to build the valance. Stay tune...
