One of the things we loved about our home is the location. You’ve heard it…
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
It was dated, but that’s why we were able to afford it in the first place. We knew that we would have some work to do.
So far we have done a hallway project, as you can see HERE. Since the hallway flooring connects with the dinning room, we headed there next.

How did we make it Salvage Style?
- Wagon chandelier was changed to a Craigslist find
- Dining room set from Goodwill $79!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (It even has a leaf-not pictured.)
- The cabinet was a Kmart find many years ago. We just changed the hardware.
- The cake stands were Goodwill/Thrift Store finds
- The mirror was from a friend who no longer wanted it
- The crock was an Estate Sale score!
- The wrought iron was removed.
Even though we did purchase some flooring (from the wholesaler) and the molding – which we put in ourselves, we found everything else either used or we already had it.
We also –
- Painted the window trim instead of new trim.
- Didn’t paint all the walls (We kept the one tan wall as is for some contrast and save $.)
(see below for updated look)
Any decorator will tell you that changes are always being made. One leftover curtain panel was added to the side of the window. Wanna know how I hung it? Nails and covered those up with leftover ribbons. Yep, crazy town here!
A gallery wall was done and you can see that craziness here…including gluing a fork to a piece of wood.
On a quick trip into our local ReStore the chandelier of dreams was there for $35. Now the other one will be sold.
Here is the room now:
Our kitchen is currently being worked on, including a PANTRY!
