I make what I like. Sometimes I make something because I think it will be fun then give it to a friend. Most of the things I make are things I need. I am going through the house and replacing all of the Ikea crap with stuff I make. My wife does not care about having one style in the house so I get to do what I want. She has never told me that something does not go with the house, in fact I know she hates the matched set look.

As for what fits with the house I am in luck there the house was built in 1925 but the inside was gutted and looks like a downtown condo (it was done before I bought the place) so if I make something modern it works or if I make something classic it works but we all know that the only thing that matters is what the wife says…..
