Use A Little Imagination

There are times when we get into a renovation and come across items that can and should be salvaged. And then there are times when we are working with a client that is looking for something unique to complement an entry way or accent a library or study.

Again, a great salvage warehouse can be just the place to fulfill both needs. You can find salvaged items that might just need to be stripped and repainted, but have some craftsmanship. You can even find items like these faucet handles that can be reused or used as hooks in the kids bathroom.

Take a piece like the one above and transform it into a Mud Room sink with storage above. Pull the top shelving unit off, drop in the sink and faucet and maybe change the paint color. A little imagination with a salvaged piece can go a long way.

There are two places that we have used locally - The Heritage Company 2 (photos above) in Royal Oak, MI and Materials Unlimited in Ypsilanti, MI.

  1. I totally agree with you that transforming salvaged items just takes a little creativity. I'd snatch up that cabinet above in a heartbeat if I lived anywhere close to Michigan.
