About 99% of my work is custom commissioned projects. I rarely have the opportunity to create my own projects to make an inventory and sell, but that is a blessed and wonderful problem to have!!! I had the distinct honor and pleasure of crafting this awesome TV console for the best designer in the Atlanta Metro for her own home. I have been working for my designer’s clients for about 4 years and I have to say it’s no wonder she was voted one of the top 15 designers in the Atlanta Metro and Best of Houzz 2013 – 2015. She receives multiple awards, recognition, and publications every year.

This tv console is made out of reclaimed heart pine lumber and features real reclaimed railroad spikes dating back to the late 1800’s for the door handles. The console measures 68 incehs long, 33 inches tall, and 20 inches deep. The finish is dry brush in antique white that has been lightly sanded and spray finished with a satin acrylic poly. The natural character of the reclaimed lumber shines through and lives on in this piece. There are adjustable shelves behind each of the doors for ample storage. This tv console will provide many years of enjoyment in their living room for their family!!

I love the finish !
Handles are unique too.
She designed handles or you ?
Nice to have someone give you designs and let you build them.
Enjoy it !

Canadian Chips - She supplied the spike handles. I have a VERY good business relationship with her. We’ve worked together the last four years and have had a lot of success together. I have had a consistent backlog of work of about 4 to 6 weeks for about a year and a half now. I was at the right place at the right time when we started working together! All of my work is custom and made to my client’s specifications but on occasion I have creative input and freedom.
