Numbered Bathroom Cabinet - The Golden Sycamore
A few weeks ago I got a request from a close friend for a custom piece for their main bathroom. They’re remodeling this spring and wanted a special storage piece for the room. While custom pieces do have their own set of challenges, it’s always fun to give someone a unique piece that fits perfectly in their home and this piece is no different.

Two Toned Nightstand: White and Wood
Our little master bedroom is finally coming together. Just a few more finishing touches and I'll be showing it off here on the blog.
