Log cabin home
Interior design is a highly personalized and highly individualized
area. With that said, there is a certain kind of decor that seems to
attract everyone who lives in a log cabin home, and that kind of
decor can either be ridiculously expensive, or ridiculously cheap.
This article aims to help you find the decorating style you want for
much less than you might think. It isn't all that difficult; all it
takes is a little work and a lot of love.
First of all, what about the internet? eBay is still an excellent
place to find inexpensive treasures for your log cabin home,
although by the time you add shipping and handling and the time and
trouble required to actually find these treasures, *particularly* if
you aren't web savvy, it may be more trouble than it's worth. Plus,
as more people become aware of the value of their items, it can be
difficult at times to find a real bargain online. You may find it
more profitable to try the good old-fashioned way; yard sales and
trade days still have excellent furniture, interior decor items, and
more, at the sort of prices you can expect when people are just
trying to get rid of an overflow of "stuff."
And, finally, never overlook the power of local artisans. If you
want something rustic, something simple and homey, something unique
and unusual, always be on the lookout in the most unexpected places.
Gather leads; any time you hear of a local artisan who may have work
you're interested in, take the time to go check them out. You won't
just be supporting a dying breed, you'll also have a chance to
discover unexpected treasures, often at wholesale prices. Be ready
to be surprised. Make each day an adventure. Your log cabin home
will thank you for it.
