Beams baby! The center point of our craftsman design and our current conversation every night (now that lights are finally over!) I officially bought the last 3 fixtures yesterday! 🥰
A couple weeks ago, our builder broke to us the price of our faux beams that we were going to create out of rift sawn white oak.
Three beams will span from the great room into the kitchen.
Quickly we shifted gears, and he went on the lookout to find something a little more affordable.
He found something in my hometown but needs to dry out, so we are currently waiting to see how they turn out. Let’s hope they will work for us. If anyone has any tips or knows of somewhere nearby with some amazing beams, let me know!
In the meantime, I want to show you guys my favorite beam inspiration photos that I’ve gathered from Pinterest. Which one is your favorite?
Updated to add OUR BEAMS!!!! Omgosh, reading this blog post makes me so happy.
We (the builder) ended up finding the most beautiful white oak wood that he could make our faux beams out of. ❤️ Ben designed them on paper, and the builder made it come to life.
Here are a few photos of how ours turned out. What do you think?! The filter has turned them a little orange, and they are not that color in real life. I need to get a couple new photos up.
