Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse, Repeat!

Fun stuff going on here at With A Twist!  Recently, while at my other job (Nest Home & Gifts...check them out @ !) I met a man named Bob who, through conversation, found he is a like-minded vintage junkie too!  How about that?  Everywhere we go we are bumping into people who really appreciate the beauty and past stories behind old treasures.  Its amazing just how much we as a society throw away and discard without even a second thought.  Well stop!!!  Next time you are cleaning out the garage, ask yourself, "What else could this be used as?"  Or better yet, "Would this be something With A Twist could repurpose?"  Most likely, we would say YES, come get it from you and thank you (and maybe even bring you your favorite caffeinated beverage!).  Win, win!

This window pane was salvaged from a home in the University District in Seattle, Washington.  I have plans for this one so stay tuned!

This charming little door is a great find from Mount Vernon, Washington.    It would make a perfect entrance  to a telephone room.  What is a telephone room you ask?  Its a brilliant idea that the Europeans have enjoyed for years!  I have a dear friend who has made a telephone room in her home.  Let me tell you there is nothing like it!  It is amazing and I hope to showcase her talent very soon!

Another blank canvas with this vintage pine door from the University District!  Possible ideas for reuse include a wet bar, coffee table, headboard, a wall piece hung behind a sofa....You'll see this again in the near future, but it will be given a new lease on life :)

So many possibilities for this beauty!  Stay tuned for this beauty as well!

We hope you have enjoyed your visit with us this week!  Thanks for stopping by!
