The exposed architectural elements give this dining room an industrial flare and interest. This dining room design boasts exposed beams, pickled wood floors, a support column with stone detail and a high ceiling with tin tiles and molding.
Some design choices can make large-scale items, such as light fixtures, pop even more. It can be as easy as adding a coat of paint over a weekend. In the kitchen and living room of this lake home, Metro Atlanta designer Beth Johnson painted the wood paneling, which had been a pickled oak color, a more appealing white. Then matched the frame of the artwork for a seamless look.
Compost tumblers help air reach all your materials, which speeds up decomposition. Look for a ready-made tumbler or make your own from an old pickle barrel. You'll need to add a vent tube in the middle and some holes to let excess moisture drain out. Although you could simply roll your barrel around to mix the materials inside, a homemade wooden frame makes the job easier.
