  4. It has to be the dining table, what a great idea to reuse the wood and the glass top is amazing!

  5. The bricks from the old house used in the new foundation are a nice way to record the history of the house.

  6. The grape vines being trained over the pergola will create a wonderful shady spot reminiscent of the old grape arbor. This is an inspired idea.

    • I don't follow . . . what do you mean? The photos of BC, or the actual framed photos mounted on the wall?

  9. I love the outdoor pergola with the reclaimed cedar posts. What a lovely area to sit and enjoy the sites and sounds of the NC coast!

  10. I absolutely LOVE all of the inspirational reclaimed/up-cycled projects that took place here. But for me, one stood out to become my favorite because IT inspired ME! The "dresser bar" in the media room was totally ingenious and it seems that Anitra and her crew were quite excited about its concept. How did it inspire me???? I plan to "design" a Blog Cabin Crashers Cocktail to honor all of the wonderful endeavors of BC 2013 B)
