Talented designer, Tara Camp of Scout Lighting & Design Goods called upon Roots Design Co. to fabricate sturdy floating shelves with the look of reclaimed wood.
The objectives were:
After the shelves were constructed, we took to some rustic methods of raising the grain and creating the effect of re-claimed wood. We kept the stain process simple, leaving warm, honey undertones with a weathered gray. Finally, we used a satin polyurethane to help make the shelves a bit more pleasing to the touch and added a layer of protection to the wood/ease of care.
These shelves came together rather simply, but the biggest blessing was in how easily they installed! In spite of prepping myself for quite an ordeal (based on the length of the shelf) but it wasn't bad at all! Seriously! All I had to do was hop up on a ladder near the window, hold my end of the bracket at the right height while he screwed into studs. When the root system was in properly, I held my end of the shelf nice and high and we slid the shelf onto the root system in unison. There was a "YAY!" glance exchanged at the top of those ladders!
love the light & beautiful touches in this gorgeous home. Tara Camp did some stunning design work and there are so many things I'm smitten with in this house. We wish this family many happy years in their new home & we were pleased to share in this project with them.
If you're considering including 'Deep Roots' floating shelves in your space, pop over to our Project Questionnaire & brainstorm with us a little.
It doesn't cost a thing to just play around (grins) and on top of that, we'd love to get to know you! Let's let our creative sides play off one another - it's one of our favorite things to do!
In the meantime, be sure to check out Scout Lighting & Design Goods website or even peruse their Facebook page for some impressive & unique pieces unlike any other. When I spoke with Tara, she mentioned how much she loved the hunt (hence the name Scout!) When someone truly loves what they do, it shows through in every aspect - and that is absolutely Tara with Scout Lighting & Design Goods.
Lucky Lab Coffee Co. makes an amazing cup of coffee - I've personally had their cardamom infused campfire latte & it took my love of latte to a whole new level!
We were excited to work with Lucky Lab (not only because we share a fondness for labrador retrievers) because what they were in need of would cause us to grow through the challenge of incorporating many trade skills into the culmination of their newest piece.
First & foremost, this coffee bar needed to conform to City of Austin Food Cart permitting regulations - the list is quite long, so we'll spare you the details of that particular challenge.
We would need to
We truly enjoyed working with Lucky Lab Coffee Co. on this project & look forward to future projects with them - along with more lattes!
