I have always been interested in architecture, remodeling, repurposing and just being a creative problem solver. If I could go back in time I think I would LOVE to be an architectural salvager! What an interesting career that would be.
On our last trip we finally went to the AURORA MILLS ARCHITECTURAL SALVAGE and I was NOT disappointed! We had driven by MANY times over the years, but never actually stopped. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! I fell in love over and over with so many of the fun and unique items and I let my mind run free creating project after project.
They had beautiful furniture pieces. I fell in love with the solid 8 foot tables, dovetailed chests and well used drafting tables as much as the old game pieces of pool balls, boxing gloves and carrom tables, corbels and banisters. The barber chairs and old mannequins were so wonderfully unique and preserved.
Here are several and I do mean several pictures of some of the fun things we saw.
