More than a few times, I have been told I have champagne tastes on a beer budget… That has often been the case, I must admit, however as I have gotten older, I have gotten much wiser.
I still appreciate fine things, however I am more particular about which things.
I have come to learn that it is better to live with less than to have a ton of junk cluttering up my life. When I was married, I would often ask for fine quality items for Christmas only to be severely disappointed by getting a second rate item that is “the same as” the actual one I wanted… For instance, I asked for a KitchenAid mixer. I got an oster mixer, but a year later, I was throwing it in the trash… Meanwhile, my sibling is still using the KitchenAid mixer my father bought my mother in the 1960s! Custom built furniture is the same concept pretty much. Perhaps you are furnishing your first household or maybe you are redecorating your household or maybe you had to throw away your furniture because it was complete junk! In any event, you should really think about custom built furniture! Handmade furniture, when crafted by a strong craftsman, will last basically for a lifetime. How many wood tables do you actually see at antique stores on a regular basis? Your household is the site where your life happens. Perhaps a charming home office, furnished with cherry wood dressers plus cedar closets, is the best home office retreat. French provincial furniture in your little girl’s room can actually provide her a site where her dreams come true. Your daughter might choose to kneel any which way across leather couches plus leather chairs that are excellent examples of handmade furniture.
