I’m still completely obsessed with the tiny house movement. Have been for years. And the obsession probably won’t wane anytime soon. I’m not talking about a tiny house on wheels to drag across the country (that’s what the converted small horse trailer pipe dream is for, but that’s an entirely different conversation), but something stationary. 400-square feet of usable space made entirely out of reclaimed materials. That’s my dream house. Not a McMansion, but that. THAT?! Sigh.
Me: Let’s sell our house and build a tiny house in the middle of the woods on lots of land and live off the grid!
Chris: Just live in one room of our house. It’ll be the same thing. (Silence.) I think you should maybe start getting out more.
Work has taken me to New England a lot in recent weeks. Now is the time of year where I usually prepare for the big summer/fall shows in Vermont and stock up on making inventory to sell at those events.
I’ve been playing around with a few new items. People are constantly looking for a unique but practical (yet affordable) piece for their homes. While daydreaming about my future tiny home, the thought came to mind to build some practical pieces for small spaces out of reclaimed wood.
These rustic items would not only fit well in a tiny house or log cabin but also in an industrial chic bathroom where you may want some wood accents.
The Medicine Cabinet:
Made out of recycled HT pallet wood and finished with reclaimed hardware (hinges and knob), the medicine cabinet can easily be mounted to any wall. A magnet ensures that the door will stay closed. Versatile – it doesn’t just have to be in a bathroom! Put it over a desk to store art supplies or desk items. Use it in your kitchen for coffee pods. Or use it to store bug spray near the back porch, like my mom does. (If you’ve lived through black fly season in New England, this makes total sense.)
The Bathroom Caddy:
Two shelves for storing whatever your heart desires. The branch holding the roll slides out easily when it’s time to restock. Or if you don’t need a TP holder, the branch bar doubles as a towel holder. Voila!
The Medicine Cabinet: please contact me for a quote. Medicine cabinet prices vary depending on the size.
The Bathroom Caddy: $35 (Finishes: natural, dark walnut, or ebony)
