    In a previous question about putting wood on the walls, the builder responded to say that it costs about 4x as much to do wood planks instead of drywall. This would likely apply to the ceiling, as well.

    Where did you get the table? Also, do you know what the dimensions of the table are?

    It was a find in a local antique store. I don't know the dimensions.

    i LOVE THE ANTIQUE LOOK TO THE TABLES! But how do you get the look or where can you buy something like it?

    dhrohrer - an update to your question from last November - I've just learned that the "inner surround" closest to the firebox is from Eldorado Stone, while the "outer" surround is a wood surround custom crafted by the builder.

    I always have and we get a better finish. But there are some new water based products out from Sherwin Williams that we are starting to try. Oil is tough to work with and can yellow over time

    Yes. Wood planks are about 4 times the cost of sheetrock installed.

    John is the builder of this house, and many other fine homes. The cost factor he provides is a great figure for planning purposes.

    Thanks for your question, unfortunately I do not know the paint color.
  • abraswell1
    I believe SW Pearly White is used in most of the rooms in this house. You can find the resource article on Southern Living for this Idea House.

    Hey Lawrence, about $40.00 per sq ft, labor and materials if done correctly.

    We are an architecture firm and I don't feel like we are the best to answer that question. I would check with local landscape/hardscape firms.

    I'm afraid I can't answer your question. We are the architects and did not select the plants or furnishings. I checked the Resource Guide for the home and I don't see any indication of the plant type.

    The table was vintage/antique. Just a tip, if you click More Info below the photo you will see many questions that have already been answered. Within that is a link to the Resource Guide for this house, should you have any further questions it might be helpful!

    Thank you for your question. The ceiling is detailed with wood planks. The ceiling height is 9'-4", a bit unusual since this was the renovation of an old home.

9. A rustic table. A smaller farm table can work well as a sofa table or library table in a living room. Smaller versions inspired by farm tables make good coffee tables in a farmhouse living room as well.

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Embrace a Few Beautifully Weathered Surfaces for a Happy, Durable HomeNovember 18, 2015

Weathered furniture looks appropriate in both cottage-style homes and tailored and sophisticated spaces. And if you’d like to layer area rugs over those durable floor options, consider sisal, sea grass or jute, which contribute warmth and texture while being durable and stain resistant.

A more unexpected approach to placing logs in a unused firebox is to tuck in a basket filled with bundles of cut firewood.

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Lessons in Living Comfortably: Embrace the Scratches and DentsOctober 10, 2013

Ever so discreetly, timeworn furniture hints at history. I wonder if this primitive table came out of Grandpa's barn or served in Great-Aunt Martha's kitchen during the Depression. In reality, it may have fallen off the back of a truck last week, or been a fantastic garage sale find. Whatever its origin, the dents and scratches make me curious.
