I found a very informative article on lacquer and its application. It’s worth a look.
Yes, this involves some carpentry, no doubt. But that’s why you hire a woodworker, a reasonable one. There are ways to achieve this look on a budget. Now, it looks like a kids room, but it can be adapted for an adult. Lower the mezzanine a bit, make some design changes, modify the color, or re-orient the bed. Your choice.
I’m loving it! This is an example of what wood can do. You can even use the bottom wasted space for storage or a small closet.
The variety of materials you could use are endless, and the configuration of the overhead compart- ment/office can be placed either horizontal on either wall.
Congrats to the designer on this one. Remember, get a woodworker to do this and work with him or her. This look doesn’t have to be expensive to achieve.
Combine the office, bedroom, and living room all in one. If you have high ceilings, utilize wasted space by going higher. The use of wood here as built-ins transforms this room into a spectacular space.
The skylight and the distressed wooden beams give a live-in feel and provide awesome natural light.
Here’s the link to this wonderful solution to need for a work area in a small space:
