Star Tribune Salvage Chic
It's finally here. I'm blogging, after talking about blogging for quite a while. I was excited to have my home and shops featured in the Star Tribune Variety Home & Garden section (Salvage Chic), April 8, 2009. It was wonderful to share this great old building with them (Kim Yeager had a perfect appreciation and understanding of using salvage in your home). What a great experience!
In the past five months, there have been alot of changes to the apartment, and I'll be sharing photos of the renovation in the coming weeks. The transformation began as mostly demolition. We removed layers of ceiling tiles and plaster, to reveal the original rafters. Paneling and plaster went out, and there they were - the original beautiful brick walls.
