Mountain style porcelain tile entryway photo in Minneapolis with yellow walls

Meadowlark Lane Residence Lower Level 1

Rustic Entry, Minneapolis

The wainscoting is made from reclaimed white barn board. For this special job, no wood was joined, every edge was eased to look worn with a wavering block plane. Knots, bullet holes, gouges, old paint, saw marks and every other imperfection were embraced and showcased for the story they represented. Nothing looks new. The ceiling is treated with tongue and grooved, beveled cedar planks. There is nothing more incongruous than when a room is rustic but the sheetrock walls are left smooth - especially when the wall are left white. To give the walls an aged look we used a two-tone yellow-gold, coarse Venetian plaster. PHOTO CREDIT: John Ray

    Hi Judy, This was a custom coat rack. The wood board came from Manomin Resawn Timbers 15152 Freeland Avenue North, Hugo MN 55038, (651) 464-1771. It is a rough cut slice from a log. The board was lightly sanded and then had several coats of clearcoat applied. The hooks came from The Brass Handle, brass-handle.com (952) 927-7777, 3605 Galleria, Minneapolis, MN 55435. Sorry I don't know what style they are. The board was simply screwed to the wall into the studs. I hope this helps. Best of luck, Mark
