#12. This summer we hope to do some major design pushes on our farmhouse. More on that later. A small project we did finish was for the master bath. Can you guess what it is?
Over there…to the left. It’s the peg board for towels. I searched for an antique one but nothing really worked right. So…I got a bunch of old chair spindles and had Scott cut them in half and insert them into a long board. Then I painted it the same color as the walls.

One of the most enjoyable projects I’ve ever done for Nibs was a series of fireplace mantels. The mantel was in the master bedroom of an old house that I got to borrow for several weeks. I indulged myself with all kinds of ideas that I’d always wanted to try out in my own home but couldn’t. And now I’m toying with the fun idea of doing a small, self-published book using them.
Note– Coviello’s instagram is a treat for old house enthusiasts especially when he features his own place.
