Hog-ridin' home decorators use our Timber false beams to transform their living room.
Bikers Transform a Ceiling with Beams
Lee F, from North Carolina, recently sent us pictures of his weekend ceiling project - the addition of fantastic-looking faux wood beams in his living room.
Lee's use of beams was particularly smart because he added them to the entrance arches of his main room; mimicking how archways are often where you'll see exposed wood in real historic houses - the ones that feature structural timber beams.
But that kind of authenticity comes with a price. Lee's faux wood alternative doesn't. For a fraction of the price of using real wood - and without any major renovations needed - he added these incredible beams over the course of just a couple of days.
"It was an easy weekend project," Lee emailed. "They make a fantastic addition to my vaulted ceiling."
Lee chose to order our Timber synthetic wood beams in Walnut finish, which effortlessly matched the existing wooden features of his home; including the stunning sign which identified their house as the home of hog ridin' Harley Davidson enthusiasts.
Another cool touch was the addition of our rubber beam straps, which perfectly mimic the appearance of the old iron straps used to reinforce timber roof beams.
Those little details; plus the intricate detailing that reproduces every grain and imperfection of real timber in a light and versatile polyurethane foam, make it pretty impossible to tell that Lee's new ceiling features aren't the real thing.
"My neighbors thought that these were real wood beams," Lee boasts. "They wanted to know how I put them up there by myself!"
We love seeing projects like Lee's - because they prove time and time again that even something simple and straightforward, like adding our faux wood beams to your ceiling - can be accomplished in different and exciting ways.
