From Box to Beauty: How To Create With Unfinished Furniture

Creating your own custom piece of furniture doesn’t have to begin with planks of wood, a mapped out design and a bunch of clamps and glue. Achieving the perfect look for your living space is easier than you think. And much kinder to your wallet. Instead of scouring the internet for the perfect, affordable piece of furniture, consider unfinished furniture. By choosing the right design style of raw unfinished wood furniture, your favorite paint or stain color, and a little work, you’ll have a catalog worthy piece at the fraction of the price. 

 

We are constantly inspired with how others have created their own DIY furniture. Raw, unfinished wood transforms into rustic farmhouse tables, elegantly modern dining room sets, and creative shabby chic desks. We’ve selected a few of our favorites from happy customers of Unfinished Furniture Expo to help you imagine what you can do.

 

Canyon Table

 

When Christina from Gingerwood Designs of Austin, Texas, called to inquire about the Canyon table, we couldn’t have been more excited to see the end result. Looking for the perfect style table that could be finished to match the room redesign and dining chairs was important.

McKenzie Unfinished 8 Drawer Dresser

 

Another interior designer, Sarah from Sarah Roddey Designs, needed to create a statement piece for the bedroom. Selecting the McKenzie Unfinished 8 Drawer Dresser, she then used a glorious, bold blue paint with clear, square knobs. We just love the attention this creation demands.

Ambierle Chair Side Table

 

Sarah also selected to use the Ambierle Chair Side Table already completed with a glazed millstone finish to add to the room. However she replaced the knobs with funky blue, round ones bringing more character to the table.
