I had been following a salvage yard on Instagram for a while and they kept showing all these fantastic vinatage/salvage finds that I thought we should go and check them out and see what was on offer and if there was anything that would be good for the house.
I have also documented this as a vlog over on our YouTube channel here if you want to check that out as well.
We went in mind to potentially look at spindles, however ended up eyeing up a huge cupboard (of which we did not buy as we currently don’t have the space….maybe when we rip the bathroom to pieces it could go in there if it is still available!) and then ended up buying something completely unpredictable…..a 4m long salvaged school bench.
We had been mulling over storage for the hall for a long time and on seeing this we thought it would look and fit the bill perfectly. With a shelf for storing shoes and the bench to sit on to put your shoes on, what could be more fitting!?
This fits the length and width of the hall perfectly and since we have had the radiator moved and a new smaller column radiator fitted as well as the floorboards restored (see picture below) the hall is just coming together nicely and I am loving the industrial/vintage feel to it.
