  • Oak Furniture Hacks!

    As we had such a good reception for our previous Furniture Hacks post, we have decided to bring another, this time we bring together our two favourite things, Solid Oak and Furniture Hacks.

    First up we have the inspiring work that has been completed on these stairs, incorporating the use of storage within the staircase. Of course this would be a difficult task to take on, however the results would shadow over the work as you would be gaining so much storage. Also with this being Oak you can guarantee the quality will be long lasting and keep the classic look for a lengthy time.

    Next up we have a simplistic headboard design that anyone could complete with a bit of determination on time. A Solid Oak Headboard would work perfectly with any bed frame we have to offer here at Oak Furniture King, so why not having an attempt at making this out a bit of old Oak.

    Finally we have an alternate shelf that could easily be made with some old crates or pieces of wood. At home we're always looking for another place where we can put our belongings, and this would provide ideal storage, while having bringing a warm rustic look to the room.

    Those are another three of favourites, if you have any that you would love to share please tweet them over to us @loveoakking!


  • Cool Furniture Hacks

    Here's our list of cool furniture hacks we think you should consider trying. Even if you're not qualified in this area of work, we're sure you will pick it up quite easily. After all, if done correctly you can save yourself a lot of cash, and have a beautiful furniture piece that compliments your interior impresses your guests.

    #1 - Transform your old bed frame into a bench that can be used for both indoor & outdoor purposes. Whether you're low on that precious space that is needed for your interior, or you need to add more furniture to your garden, then you can create this beautiful furniture piece. With some screws, hand/machine saw, paint and some will-power you can accomplish this simple but useful piece.

    #2 - Do you have plenty of kitchen space that needs something to add that touch of style and practicality? well, look no further as you can create your own island with furniture you may already have. If you have old cabinets in your office/living room doing nothing then you can make yourself this stunning piece below. With very little DIY skills required you can assemble yourself a cool island piece to compliment your kitchen space. If you have 4 cabinets and a spare board piece knocking around in your garage, you can probably do this within the hour. If you don't have the essentials, then it is worth browsing second-hand websites and Facebook groups for furniture at affordable prices.

    #3 - Turn your table into a magnificent vintage clock table. Starting with a basic, bedside table and a round top, you can produce a stunning clock table that requires nothing but a little paint and a can-do attitude.

    #4 - Organizing your home isn't just about the meticulous placement of furniture, it is to benefit from a well-structured, functional layout. As you can see, customizing your home to accommodate how you live is an important concept. With the sliding shelves below, height restrictions are out the question which is why we think it makes for the perfect floor-to-ceiling shelving unit.

    A desire to make our homes the best they can be is never out of reach. There are so many creative ideas out there to make your home beautiful & practical, it's almost too difficult to not attempt making one.
