Here’s another reclaimed lumber project that I want to tackle. What a fab architectural object to add to the living room.
Their warehouse hosts many vignettes comprised of salvaged doodads spanning over many eras such as this fireplace mock up. Oh…and how about this 25-foot American flag hanging high above. Okay, maybe too over the top for my taste, or maybe I’m not thinking big enough.
Rancho Reubidoux turned us on to Big Daddy after one of his treks in Los Angeles. Rancho always, yes always finds the coolest stuff. Thank you for doing what you do. Hey, wanna see more? You must pop over to Rancho Reubidoux and see Big Daddy through his eyes. You won’t regret it.
