There is so much cool stuff out there, guys!
Above and below are photos from Housewerks Salvage, the most bad ass salvage spot in Baltimore. Jon and I have become building material tourists, and unfortunately the result is a bit of hoarding blue balls (sorry, Dad). We see amazing things when we're traveling that we have no means to bring home with us. So instead we take pictures and caress old doors and metal lockers lovingly, mournfully.
My latest project is a redwood window frame with peeling green paint. I found an old, huge mirror at a yard sale that I'm going to cut to fit the window. It's going to be awesome and look something like this:
This is Jon's latest project, but I couldn't resist mucking around.
He found an algae-covered clawfoot tub (without feet) at a used furniture store that's going out of business. The proprietress basically begged Jon to take it away, but she thought it would be too heavy for us (ahem, ME) to lift. We hauled that sucker out and away like it was nothing. Jon wants to turn it into a fountain, but until then I'm scrubbing layers of mud and green gunk off the cast iron. I'm thinking of leaving some of the green, though. I reminds me of the well in the Princess and the Frog.
If you need me, I'll be rooting through your trash.
