Stealable Idea #1: Butcher Block Counter
A butcher block counter, whether throughout your kitchen or just a part, adds warmth and natural tones to the space.
Versatile Wood Products is a great place to have a custom butcher block counter made.
Stealable Idea #2: Open Shelving
Open shelving can be a great way to add color and personality to your kitchen that can be changed up by simply adding or removing items. Salvaged or unique shelving brackets also add a point of interest.
Open shelving is another project that Versatile Wood Products can tackle. For unique brackets, we typically turn to House of Antique Hardware.
Stealable Idea #3: Wood Paneled Ceiling
To get that rustic vibe, add some wood paneling to your ceiling and paint it white.
Wood paneling can be a DIY project, purchasing lumber and fixing it to the ceiling, or you can purchase sheet paneling from places like McCoy Millwork or The Home Depot.
This hip bar in the Concordia neighborhood is known for their cocktails and “drinking snacks”.

Stealable Idea #2: Exotic Pieces
Add personality to your space by incorporating a favorite piece, whether it’s from a trip or just because it looks cool.

Stealable Idea #3: Dark & Dramatic Paint
