old 1950's newspaper found in the house and used for wallpaper
bathroom pictured here used a batch of old 1950s newspapers that they found under the lino flooring when renovating their home. The creative pair also repurposed

throw them out. This one is a great example – old 1950s newspapers found at this home became wallpaper, and an old dresser became the bathroom vanity.There

just want to compliment your brilliant door idea, I will be doing it at my house in CT. I have 100 year old doors in the attic I didn't want to throw away
Just to clarify, the whole fence was constructed using pressure treated lumber, which was purchased at the Home Depot in Burlington
These are old clay bricks found on the property. The bricks were dry laid in the soil.
The door, one of two found in the basement of our old house, was

wallpaper is Printers Guild, Gossamer collection model # GM10403. Happy renovating!
This was from Home Depot and was actually very cost effective at around $80. Unfortunately I
like putting an old dresser in the bathroom
sorta like the idea of the hanging light over the tub. and mixing old pieces
I like the idea of mixing old furniture within the bathroom for storage. Nice touch.

Boys bedroom
furniture is over 30 years old," hand me downs". The nightstand is an old trunk turned on it's side... a unique solution for such a high bed! The wall treatment
This is a 8 year old boys room. He wanted an adventurous feel. This room is small just 9x11. It was completed on a even smaller budget. The furniture
has a bathroom adjacent to his bedroom. Any suggestion for a paint color idea for bathroom to make area flow from one room to next.
where did you find the trunk? Great idea!
Wow, I never thought about putting a trunk on it's head vs. it's side, cool idea!
interesting idea for bedside table- use a trunk
Cool Old trunk turned on side for night table
Old dresser cut up for under bed. Great idea
9x11 room. Old maple furniture repurposed

From Kids to Quiet
On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed
rubbed bronze hooks and towel bar. Could be quite simple to make. I have an old Queen Anne door I've been thinking of using like that!

master bathroom
What kind of paint was used on the old door? Chalkboard spray paint?
beauty of it. They had an old door and painted it with chalkboard paint. Then you can write whatever you like on it. Great idea and great quote of Dr. Seuss
get at Lowe's or Home Depot. We didn't even prime, because we wanted the age of the door to show through. The door is about 80 years old. It was in the garage
I love this chalkboard door idea with a quote.
Cute idea to take an old door and paint it with chalkboard paint
Love the old door painted with chalk paint!
Find an old door with gobs of character? Don't bother changing the hardware! I love the contrast between old an new in this bathroom.
adds such life to a home since you're able to personalize it.

Kelly and Abramson Kitchens
appreciate this kitchen. Small kitchen with a small budget. Custom cabinets, old stove, new fan in drywall hood. Playful brackets supporting cabinets and stove
I love those old stoves. Chambers & O'Keefe & Merritt made some fabulous stoves.
one in a 1980 townhouse in Wellington City, NZ (14 sq.ft). Eventually the old stove began emitting clouds of smoke, so I replaced it with a modern SS one
and will need to have some more custom made. I'm trying to get a ballpark idea of what I can expect to spend.
something of that time.I am not sure if this style is true to the age of the home. Thanks.
/ early 50s into the design. I wanted ideas before starting to work with the contractors that will be renovating the kitchen.
