Remember those beautiful iron rails, shutters, and even heat registers from days gone by? Youve probably had your eye on them at flea markets, yard sales, or salvage yards, but werent quite sure how they would fit into your decor. Transform those architectural details into furniture, art, and other functional items that will add instant charm and grace to your home or garden. What was once an Art Deco mantel becomes a headboard; an ornate window guard makes a great pot rack. Any one of these 45 projects will enable you to create something new with all the elegance of the historic architectural remnant that its crafted from. The techniques youll try are varied, yet the skills needed for most of the projects are minimal. And even if you dont want to pick up a hammer, youll be inspired to find the perfect look for your home. Imagine a porch support column as a corner shelf. It will brighten up a bare area and provide an unusual showcase for vases, dolls, and knick-knacks. A rosette is a decorative molding used to connect the side and head trims of a door casing, but in your hands, it will turn into a delightful little clock. Want a table that you can rest your feet on? Feel right at home with one designed from hardwood flooring for the top (the legs are balusters!). And evoke memories of yesteryear with a stand-alone cupboard made up from a farmhouse door and a pair of kitchen cabinets. Give new life to architectural elements with one-of-a-kind, stylish projects that complement any home decor.
