Who: Kristin M.
Where: St. Louis, MO
We salvaged a single wall made of tongue and groove pine and installed custom windows and wardrobes that we designed and had fabricated at a local millwork shop. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, a custom mural, and a salvaged mantle with hand-painted tiles add warmth and charm to the room. The best part? Those old pine boards were installed on the front mansard wall, which has become an ever-changing activity and display wall for our daughter's creativity.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $5,000 to $10,000
