Now there’s a way to connect with craftsmen and artists to bring your custom made idea to reality.

Have you ever spent hours (or days) searching the internet for something that seemed to only exist in your imagination? Or found something similar, but for whatever reason it’s just not quite right? That’s the definition of a custom made project. is an online marketplace with over 3,000 portfolios of craftsmen ready, willing and able to work with you on a project for your home. For a kitchen, there’s this custom yellow kitchen island [top] with stained wood counter from ECustomFinishes.

To look for something specific, browse by category or use, then narrow it down even more in the price categories. Check out current projects, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, post details on the Project Board so that a craftsman can contact you.  There’s even a search by state or zip code for local makers if you’re more comfortable working with someone close to home. So the next time you can’t locate the perfect copper range hood, farmhouse table, carving board, bathroom vanity or there are portfolios to  sift through where you’re sure to find an artist that can help make your dream idea come true.

    Thanks Atticmag and Allison for the great blog. It’s so true that all to often, when we can’t find exactly what we’re looking for, we settle for what is available. CustomMade wants to help people make the things they buy exactly as they imagine them to be.

    Let us know how we can help you.
