[ salvage savvy ]

THERE'S NOTHING I love more than finding interesting pieces and transforming them into gems. And when I saw this home in Country Living, I instantly fell in love with it.

With pieces from Craigslist, eBay, salvaged wood, a bit of chalk paint, and lots of imagination, this home is filled with charm and beauty on a budget.

The Craigslist wing chair and settee were reupholstered using dropcloths, the pendant lamp created using a lantern and IKEA lighting kit, and a repainted armoire was transformed with new mirror from Lowe's.

Inspired by a gorgeous table from Restoration Hardware, some salvaged wood, screws and glue were used to create a replica. Yard sale chairs were painted with chalk paint and a pendant light was sanded to give it an industrial look.

Salvaged doors were transformed into chic barn doors with casters and plumbing pipe.

Brass house numbers were painted aqua for the stairs and a lampshade was decoupaged with dictionary pages.

Isn't this a great home? It just shows that you can have a gorgeous, unique home no matter what your budget ~ just think outside the box.

I also fell in love with this home. They repurposed with style for sure. I tore out the page with the barn doors. We have some old screen doors and I've been looking for parts to do this- never would have thought of plumbing fixtures :)
