Repurposed Furniture For Your Home

Repurposed Hardware ShelfRepurposed Hardware Shelf

Dimensions are:
58 1/4″ wide by 13 1/2″ tall, 5 5/8″ deep.

Vintage Hardware was carefully placed and mounted with the old slotted screws. Beautiful hand rubbed patina.  My wife Cari, finished this piece and I love it so much that it is staying in our house.

Dimensions are:
34″ wide, 85″ tall, shelves approx. 13″ deep, 21″ deep overall.

Never seen anything quite like this. Hand rubbed patina beautiful details. The crown resembles the pitch of a house which ties in to the idea of using old doors. I like the idea of reusing old furniture and having the mindset of thinking “green” but maybe not so extreme. Cari also refinished this piece and it is also in our house and one of my all time favorite finishes that I have ever seen.  It really does look 100 years old.

 The doors were found at an architectural salvage yard. Then I put the pieces together with moldings and shelves, etc.  There is a lot you can do with repurposed furniture. You really can get creative with it and it’s also a lot of fun. For other ideas, take a look at the custom library that I built for my brother.

Reporting on the World and all that is in it– Alexander Graham Bell 1914.

22 3/4 High 24 Wide 1 1/2 Deep. Magazines are included.

It has always bothered me that these magazines were stored in bookcases so that the stunning covers of a lot of these could not be seen.

Some of the stories in these magazines are amazing. Even though there are several million stored in attics and other places across the country, I couldn’t tear the covers off, so I made eight shadow box panels to keep the magazine intact.  I loved the look of these so much that I hung them on a wall in my office.
