Adding Pine Furniture In The Home

pine furnitureWhen I think about interior decorating for our own house, I have to weigh all of the options that are out there, as well as the opinion of my partner, who would like a rustic atmosphere. When I think “rustic”, I think pine furniture and horseshoe coat racks and such with a neutral, two-tone brown paint design.

I have to admit, out of all of the choices out there, I like the log furniture options! Yes, it is generally more expensive (unless you make it yourself), but there is just something that lifts my heart when I think about pine furniture for my house!

Wooden furniture made out of tree out of our own pasture, hardwood floors for the main part of our house, neutral paint colors, horseshoe coat racks and bone handles for my kitchen drawers are all on my wish list for this Summer! I think we will start with a wooden bed frame for our bedroom with complementary wooden desk bedroom furniture, and then maybe a bench or something by the front door to take boots off on, and then maybe a kitchen table or something.

Overall, I think the wooden-type furniture is going to be the easiest to keep clean and such. Ceramic tiles and such are easy to clean, but then you have to worry about the grout and such, and I am just not ready to deal with that. There is also the metal option for furniture, but that makes the furniture seem cold and unusable, in my opinion, especially metal bedroom furniture. Also, metal tends to rust after a while. On the other hand, if it’s termite/bug free to start with, if you keep your wood furniture clean and finished with linseed oil, or even a clear varnish, wood furniture will last for a long time with very little upkeep, except a coat of varnish or linseed oil occasionally.
