Tips for Decorating Your Bookshelf

Your handmade bookcase can do much more than simply hold your books—when used right, it can also serve as a great decorative feature in your home! So what can you do to make your wooden bookcase stand out? Here are a few ideas to help you get started. Collection Display: From fine china to baseball cards, many of us have unique collections scattered around the house. Gathering these items together and using a shelf on your wooden bookcase as a display area is a great way to show off your collection. Big Objects: Want to make your handmade bookcase truly eye-catching? Try placing a single large decorative object on one of your shelves. This can stand in sharp contrast to the books on other shelves, creating an interesting visual effect. A piece of art or a photograph can also be great for creating this contrast. Unique Book Displays: Obviously, the main point of having a bookshelf is all about the books. But why settle for a cluttered mix of books? Create a more unified look by arranging your books by color or size. Alternatively, you could lay some books on their side on certain shelves. And don’t forget about the power of bookends! A unique bookend can add a lot of flair to your...

Benefits of Storing Your Jewelry in an Armoire

Do you have a good place to store your jewelry? Without a jewelry box, armoire, or dressing table, it can be difficult to keep everything organized as you’d like. But with the help of our wood products, you’ll have the perfect solution for storing your jewelry collection—no matter how big or small it might be. Using an armoire can be especially helpful when you have a large jewelry collection. With the multiple compartments and drawers of this wood furniture piece, it is easy to separate your jewelry by type so that you can keep everything organized. Better yet, many of these compartments can be custom-fitted with hooks, linings, and other add-ons that allow you to store everything properly within each drawer. While having separate storage compartments for your jewelry may not seem like a big deal, this greatly reduces the risk of losing or misplacing your jewelry. It can also go a long way in keeping your valuable pieces safe from scratches and other damage that can occur when everything is tossed into the same drawer.  In addition to armoires, we also have several other wood products available to help you organize and protect your jewelry. Small jewelry cabinets and boxes as well as larger dressing tables ensure that you’ll have the right amount of space for storing your jewelry collection. With the help of these wood furniture pieces, you can preserve your jewelry for future...
5 Benefits of a Cedar Chest

5 Benefits of a Cedar Chest

Pest Protection – One of the greatest benefits of a cedar chest is that cedar wood serves as a natural deterrent against moths and other pests. With a cedar chest, you won’t have to buy mothballs to keep your clothes in good shape! Appearance – Rather than serve as a boring storage area, a cedar chest offers a distinct, beautiful look that could easily become the highlight of your room. Its rich reddish-brown color, heavy grain, and knots makes each wood furniture piece look unique. Durability – The strength of cedar wood makes it a popular choice for storage chests and other handcrafted furniture pieces. Even when put under pressure, the wood is unlikely to warp or shift away from the wall. Sustainability – Cedar wood is an environmentally friendly choice, as the wood used for cedar chests and other wood furniture pieces typically comes from controlled forest areas. Aroma – The natural cedar oil that drives away moths and other insects also provides a pleasant aroma. You won’t need to buy air fresheners with the sweet smell of cedar in your...

It turns out the quality of the mattress you use with your Ohio wooden bedsets can have a direct impact on your well-being.  It makes sense that an uncomfortable mattress would make it hard to sleep well at night.
