salvaging for parts ... in our own home.

You know what is particularly amusing about my last post? The fact that we have enough old "stuff" accumulated throughout our home that we don't really need to go to a salvage store. Okay, okay...it's much more fun and useful to look through others' junk (uh, architectural salvage). Besides...we love looking.
Anyways, just thought I'd show some stuff we have either inherited, saved from becoming salvage for others to buy (read: got it from the trash), or actually purchased for future use in the restoration of Irvington Bungalow.
i love this sink...we hope to use it in our future laundry room ~

an old Chambers stove...we're considering having it restored for use in our future kitchen ~

a beautiful door for which we have no use ~

a stained glass window (one of several we now own)...we're going to restore it and hang it above the fireplace mantel ~

an old Coke machine...i have no idea what the hell we're going to do with this but it's cool ~

We actually have several other things sitting around however blogger wouldn't let me post any more pics. Besides the weather is fab so i'm going outside to enjoy the day!

That's great that you have a Chambers stove. I just bought one that I'm going to restore and use in our kitchen. I believe you have a model C, which are easiest to get parts for.

Our garage is starting to feel like a salvage yard, too. It's not like you can just go to the store and they'll always have what you want/need, though. You kind of just have to buy it when you find it...
