From the very beginning, we have had a knack for finding architectural salvage (like vintage tin ceiling tile) and decorating our home with it. You could say that Robb Restyle "the shop" was established as result of how we decorated our home with these recycled pieces. Friends and family would visit and ask us to make a similar version for their house. One of the first projects we ever made was a unique wall hanging with some old tin ceiling tile that Corey had found. He painted over the … [Read more...] about Repurposed Vintage Tin Ceiling Wall Decor

Here are a few more benches and a foot stool that we painted, waxed and recovered with burlap sacks. We made our own chalk paint for the white and blue benches. Then we rubbed on a dark wax for a smooth finish. Our personal favorite is the blue "kitchen queen" potato sack! These are perfect accessories for your living room or a mudroom for putting on shoes... or perhaps in a bedroom or by your front door. There are countless possibilities. Would be great in a room with some burlap pillows … [Read more...] about More burlap foot stools and benches.
Here's a fun upcycle project that only took a few hours to complete... it actually took me much longer to find enough decorative nails to finish the project! I found this old stool at the flea market and new this sturdy, solid stool would be a perfect project for the burlap I had collected. I'm not sure what was underneath this 60s tapestry fabric, but I removed all the nails and added a burlap coffee sack to cover the old fabric. I painted the legs a barn red and probably could … [Read more...] about Burlap Sack Foot Stool
Old leaded glass windows are so beautiful. It's a shame you don't find many houses anymore that still retain the them. However, I love to look at them in antique and salvage shops. They can be expensive, but I choose not to spend a lot on my salvage finds so if you're patient you will eventually cross paths with decently priced versions. This one was only about $40 and there were no cracks in the glass.Like any architectural home decor element, I've seen them used around the house in a variety … [Read more...] about Repurpose: Lead Glass Window
Have I told you how talented my husband is? We found this little gem in a cute shop while on vacation near French Lick, Indiana.Corey has been collecting random license plates for years. We've put plenty of the coolest or oldest ones on our walls in our basement (channeling Applebee's or a more hip bar scene?)... Anyway, he's basically taken the rest of our piles of license plates and turned them into these cute flowers! While I'm usually the one with the vision, he initiated this … [Read more...] about Repurpose: License Plate Flower
