Pictures: What's in store in Finksburg
Take a drive through part of Carroll County and bring home a breath of fresh country air, courtesy a collection of specialized shops in Finksburg, Eldersburg and Sykesville. Each of these stores offered more than expected: specializing a piece of furniture just to suit your tastes, using old barn decor or equestrian equipment as home decor or vetting secondhand pieces to make sure they're up-to-snuff. - Sloane Brown, Special to The Baltimore Sun

Bare Wood House
The folks here say they have everything to furnish your home furniture-wise, except upholstered pieces. Everything is ordered unfinished. You can buy finish there and do-it-yourself, or the store can do it for you, for an additional price. In addition to offering several lines of furniture - including several from Amish craftsmen - Bare Wood House also offers custom-made pieces and some non-wooden home accent pieces.
This McKenzie queen-size chest bed ($1,891 including finish) is finished in glazed antique cherry, as is the small three-drawer nightstand ($393).
Bare Wood House is at 2445 Baltimore Boulevard, Finksburg. Call 410-833-2078 or go to barewoodhouse.com.
