Outside is a massive architectural salvage yard that sets my heart awhirl. It’s all way out of my budget of course, but inspirational to look at.

Entablature Mirror, $3,290
Trestle Wood Salvaged Dining Table, $3,290
Salvaged Wood Sideboard, $2,990
Gun Barrel Salvaged Dining Table, $3,290:
I say, if his opinion is correct, then imitation is the best form of flattery.
