Architectural Salvage Fun

Architectural Salvage Fun

It is always fun to check out an architectural salvage store. You never know what you might find and where it may lead you. From what appears to be space guns to trains, crosses, and stained glass – there is something for everyone.

You have to use your imagination on this one, but wouldn’t it be fun to integrate part of an airplane into a new design project? It could be a great addition to a restaurant, daycare, or a man cave (of considerable size of course).

What about a barrel of toys?

Concrete mushrooms would be a fun addition to any garden.

I am trying to figure out where we can install a giant E. Could it be part of a daycare?

This Christmas tree has a train running around it – how cool is that? I know this would look great at the Depot!

This amazing chair would be a great addition to any living room.

I am not sure I will ever have a project that has a need for a cross with Jesus or a rustic wood cross, but I would love to find a place for this stained glass. Either one of those would look great in a living room.

Looking for the beauty in the leftover parts and pieces adds texture and depth to any design. These stores exist in several places around the state – I encourage you to go dream when you have a chance.
