YAY! December is finally here!
I LOVE December! For multiple reasons too. My birthday, the season of GIVING, all the lights, the decorations, etc. Today is the perfect day to introduce you to Lakota. She and I went to high school together! Lakota has started her own business, and well, I’ll just let her tell you more about it!
Remember to read all the way through to find out about our FIRST giveaway of the 12 Days of Giveaways!
Roddom’s Rustic Designs- Where we began!I have always had a passion for creating. I started out making small crafts with my siblings and scrapbooking when I was young. As I got older I started doing more wood crafts and home decor items. I always had ideas forwarding around in my head about what project I wanted to work on next!~Justin took many woodworking classes in school and enjoyed building. He would often build wood projects such as picture frames and holiday decor to give as Christmas presents.~As we were dating he would often build small gifts for me. He spent a weekend in his uncle’s shop with a stack of barn wood and made me a beautiful rustic bedframe. Five years later I refuse to upgrade our bed to a bigger size because I do not want to get rid of the frame he built.

As we moved into our first place together we were short on cash and needed a few additional pieces of furniture and had very little decor. We tore apart some old pallets left from the hay pile and a few evenings later we now had matching nightstands. I took leftover scraps and starting making a few pallet signs to decorated our bare walls. Before we knew it people had seen the stuff we built and wanted one of their own or would request custom pieces.~We have since expanded and built many different furniture pieces, some of which include- coffee tables, end tables, kitchen tables, entryway tables, tree halls, shelves and more. Most all of our home decor pieces are all made from the scrap wood pile left from whatever the last big project was. We love creating and spending time in the shop together and now take our son to the shop with us where he enjoys playing and watches us work.
