This is what happens when I head into the thrift store looking for a small project to work on. I didn’t find anything but pressed wood junk, and then there’s this big beast. I stop, I stare, I talk to myself. Do you do that? Well, after much discussion with me, myself, and I, I decided to haul this bad boy home. Meet my latest project…an upcycled entertainment center.
A few weeks ago, I told you about a reclaimed wood resource that I had stumbled upon while on the search for a custom request. Remember the angels sang that day?
What a story lies in this stash. This is wood from mainly old disassembled barns. In addition, also some salvaged treasure dating back to the 1800’s. I stood in awe of it all…amazing.
One of the projects that fueled our hunt for reclaimed wood, was a custom order for Sara at Sadie Olive.
Sara had been planning to remodel her kitchen by creating a rustic look by removing her upper kitchen cabinets and replacing them with reclaimed wood open shelving. She wanted to do the same with shelving for her laundry. She also asked us to create a custom planked top for a dry sink she refinished and planned to use as an entertainment center.
