From candlesticks to boot scrapers, whether you live in the countryside or just love country living, our rustic style pieces are sure to suit your home. Our beautiful items are a must for horse lovers and equestrians, handcrafted in the forge at Anvil Cottage from used and new horseshoes. A lot of our inspiration comes from the shape of the horseshoe which lends itself to natural organic designs.
With the arrival of Autumn, the trees are awash with leaves in warm tones of mustard yellow, burgundy red and burnt brown. As the cooler months arrive, we turn our attention to creating a warm, welcoming feeling in our homes. Here at Anvil Cottage Crafts, we offer a range of attractive decorative and functional pieces that will help you create a cosy country home this season.
This Autumn our Country Living styled pieces are Inspirational
After a busy day at work or an action-packed weekend away, there is nothing nicer than arriving home and turning the key in your front door. You can then start to unwind and relax. However, where do you put those all-important keys? How often do you frantically search for them in the morning when the clock is ticking and you’re running late? Our horseshoe key rack is the perfect place to store your keys and will mean no more frantic searches!
The rustic horseshoe key rack is made from new horseshoe nails and a single horseshoe. The racks are made from used horseshoes, so each one is completely unique. The key rack will make a real style statement for any visitors, signalling that they are entering a cosy country living styled home .
Horseshoe Doormat/Boot Scraper
It’s the time of year for muddy Autumn walks with the dogs and the satisfying crunch of leaves underfoot as we go about our daily lives. The last thing you want is dirty boots or shoes traipsing through your home. Our horseshoe doormat/boot scraper will clean any mud from the bottom of shoes or boots.
Made from new horseshoes surrounded by a steel frame, the doormat while being really useful is also stylish. Here at Anvil Cottage Crafts, we pride ourselves on making beautiful pieces that are practical too. A perfect gift for any horse lover or for anybody moving into a new home.
- Boot Scraper
Do you spend a lot of time outdoors or are you a gardener or equestrian? If so you might prefer a simple boot scraper which gets the job done.
Made from horseshoes and reused metal, our horseshoe boot scraper is perfect for cleaning the mud from the bottom of your boots or shoes. The only footprints allowed in your home should be on our personalised steel paw plaque, the ideal way to create a long-lasting memory of a much-loved cat or dog.
- Horseshoe Boot jack
Whether yours are green, pink or patterned, traditional or trendy, welly boots have one thing in common. They are really difficult to get off! You can solve this problem with our horseshoe bootjack. Ideal for removing those stubborn wellies, especially if they are covered in mud.
The boot jack can be made from your horse’s shoes, just let us know and we’ll make it happen. For strength and durability, the horseshoes are welded together.
- Bespoke Signs
Make yourself at home with a sign made from horseshoes. This could be a name sign on a pony loving teenager’s door or a sign that reads ‘home’ for your living room, therefore adding a cosy cottage feel.
A perfect gift to be hung inside or outside, you could even treat your horse to a stable name sign. A sign from Anvil Cottage Crafts will add a touch of vintage style to your home.
- Pillar candle holder
Before we know it, the clocks will be going back therefore it’s time to snuggle up and get cosy. There is certainly nothing like the flickering glow of candlelight in the evening. Above all, our horseshoe pillar candle holder will create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in your country living home.
A lovely gift for a horse loving friend. We can make the pillar candle from your horseshoes, creating an ideal keepsake just for you. Should you want something more elaborate, our horseshoe candelabra could perhaps be just the thing. The three-horseshoe candlestick is ideal for parties.
- Horseshoe Wine Rack
With the party season just around the corner, our horseshoe wine racks may be just what you need, providing a stylish way to house your favourite tipples. You can choose from 3 or 5 bottle options or request a custom order.
