pillars. can't say that i have ever thought about them. im not much into architecture. it's fine. i can take it or leave it. our house was built in 1969. it was super plain. being the young couple we were when we bought it we just wanted a decent place to live. we have done our share of sprucing up. tore out carpet, put in hard wood floors. took out cabinetry and put in open shelving. built a privacy fence for the backyard and a picket fence for the front. but the bones of the house have stayed the same.
bring in friendly and talented woodworker neighbor/friend Tim. his wife had wanted 2 pillars she thought. after he built them she decided she only wanted one. so they asked us if we wanted a pillar. hmm. i guess im not sure. but i am always willing to save good projects from the burn pile. so i went over and had a look at hers and decided that maybe we also could use a pillar. hers has a lot of molding on it. ours is more simple. more our style. their decor is a little more refined than ours. one free pillar, free trim and leftover paint and i now have myself a bit of architecture. go figure.

i actually quite like it. especially for something i never thought of before. WorkinMan really likes it so that makes me happy. so never be afraid to think outside your box a little bit. for me bright colors are the norm for you pillars might be. you can blend styles very easily if you make the item your own.
