Presenting: Cat on a Handrail


The internet has a love for cats and I share mainly pictures of different handrails and railings irdeas. We’ve seen wavy banisters, which I’m hopeful will soon turn into a project with a wooden banister. I’ve shared lots of pictures of railings at sunset or sunrise or with the light just so. and of course plenty of Mountain Laurel Handrail.
But this is the first pic I’ve shared of a cat on a handrail.
And I know how much the internet loves cats.

Here’s an awesome picture of a black wrought iron railing in a botanical garden. The flowers and plants make an incredible backdrop for the black metal of the railing.You should also check out this site about railing designs for more cool pictures!

exterior railing

check out this exterior railing installed in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. There was snow on the ground and the light was just right to capture the rustic elegance of these painted branches of mountain laurel.


slow furniture

Here is the ultimate in wood working! I thought that my deck railing was the coolest, most intricate use of wood in it’s natural form, but this guy has got me beat. He takes living trees and molds them into shapes and furniture. This is just so cool!


deck railing ideas

Whether you’re working on a new deck or remodeling your existing one, an often overlooked accent is your railing. There’s no easier place to make a big impact on how your home looks. If you have a front porch, this is the best way to add curb appeal to your place which is especially important if you’re thinking about selling. Here’s a picture of mountain laurel handrails.

rustic headboards

check out this article on   They featured lots of cool headboards including mine, that are made out of wood, logs, branches and more. I especially like the one made out of a redwood burl. I learned recently that burls are actually caused by a bacteria and are big tumors like cancer.
