On the 4th, 5th, and 6th DIYs of Chistmas – I Got a Lot of Little Stuff Done

While I may not have given you a 12 DIYs update the last few days, that’s not to say I’ve not been working my tail off to make my 12 projects goal a reality. With my somewhat limited time during the week I’ve been working to knock as many of the small tasks off of my list that I can. So today I present you with three fairly minor things that are surprisingly a pretty major deal to us. DIYs four, five, and six.

We love architectural salvage! But sometimes making something old fit in something new can be a challenge. 

Over the years we've worked to install various old architectural salvage items in our home. From transom windows to doors and hinges to locks, using old materials in your renovation not only adds character you just can't get from new products, it can also make a renovation look appropriate in an old home, like it's always been that way. 

For example, our entry hall before and after, with reproduction mouldings, a salvaged leaded glass hardware, and minor reconfiguration.
