A couple of months ago I shared how we were looking for a coat rack for our entryway since there is no closet in the space. We primarily use the rear entrance/mudroom for coming and going and storing coats and jackets. Still, we wanted a place to put coats and hats for when we receive guests, and for short-term storage. We just received this Lucy coat rack we purchased a couple of months ago (on sale, but on backorder) and we’re really happy with it as a storage solution that fit our style and budget. We love the natural whitewashed wood and black metal finish, simple design, and tapered legs. It has a mid-century modern/farmhouse feel. The other great feature is that it only has a 1 sq. ft. footprint, so it fits between the rug and baseboard and doesn’t impede the door opening. We were reluctant to attach anything to the wall, so it’s a great option if you’re looking for a temporary or movable storage solution for a small space.

I love working on this house. The clients have a clean style while embracing some of the more traditional details. I credit the homeowner with pushing for the beveled base because it looks fly. Yes, I just said “fly” on here. And I say it in real life sometimes, too.
It was not until the tile on the walls was almost completely installed and the ceiling had been taped, sanded and primed, that I realized that we were going to have a cut sliver of a tile at the top below the chair rail. I tried to brainstorm an idea that wouldn’t involve me paying for an additional sheet of drywall and 4-6 hours of labor to bring the ceiling to the correct height but there was no reasonable compromise that would provide the desired result. I am very satisfied with the finished result but I’m curious how I can avoid this situation in the future. It is a struggle to estimate the precise amount of space the setting materials will take up when framing walls and ceilings. As much as we go to great lengths to level our floors, there is always something slightly higher or lower then what was planned. It’s not until my finished tile is installed on the floor that I know precisely what the finished height is. I can lay the wall tiles out on the floor with spacers to estimate where my cuts should end up but that only works if all of the tiles are precisely the same size which typically isn’t the case. There is often some variation that makes estimating measurements accurately almost impossible. I am always trying to not repeat previous mistakes but I feel like this situation probably will happen again. Am I overthinking this?🤯

The trend in todays trade world seems to be, if the materials cheap, its ok to do a poor job installing it.
If the customer uses cheap materials to save a buck. I will still install them the same way I do oak or maple. The painter has not touched my work in these photos yet.
