Salvaged How-to's

Introducing our newest feature: Salvaged How-to's! We post a lot of projects, from before and afters to building a piece of furniture from old scrap wood. But pictures only take you so far. So, we decided to take a look back at some of our old projects and the future ones we have in mind, and slow down and document the building process, to share a more detailed "how-to" version of these projects. So far, we have three favorites, but we will be adding more soon! Stop by the how-to page and get some inspiration!
