  4. So many have chosen things I love but I will say the brass ship's bell for announcing guests but could also double to call all in to a meal no matter where they are on the property!

  5. Each and every reclaimed or upcycled piece shows great charm, creativity, and respect for the original house and its setting. The fireplace mantle is magical and is my favorite.

  6. First time posting (but i sat through alllll of smart home w/ you guys). Very difficult to choose, however it has to be the tree stump coffee table.

    • Welcome….this does have more charm than the $MART HOME did though, don't ya think?

  7. I think the master suite headboard is gorgeous. I'm always amazed at the vision talented people have to re purpose wore items. Shutters…who would have thought!!!

  8. I love that outdoor pergola and the fact that you kept some of those grape vines to regrow with the new family!

    Debra on July 19, 2013 at 9:11 pm
    • The vines are new but the result is the same.;)

  9. I love this house! I think I would spend most of my time on the porch or in the pergola gazing out at the water! It all looks so peaceful. My favorite reclaimed project has to be the master bed. I think that the attached nightstands from an old dresser and the shutters for the headboard really looks nice. I would never have thought to do that.

  10. Saving the Fireplace Surround was my very favorite repurposed item that was used in the new house. Beautiful
