The Door Store in The Globe & Mail

Check out today’s Globe & Mail article where  Sarah Richardson talks salvage – specifically, how she used salvaged architectural details (including our galvanized lights and wrought-iron sign bracket) to give her Creemore kitchen a vintage farmhouse look.  She stresses the fact that not only is shopping vintage usually easier on the budget than going new or reproduction, but also that reproduction pieces are rarely authentic-looking enough to be convincing.  Vintage pieces have more character and are more unique, so no one will have the exact same look as you.  By the same account, since the lights and bracket that Sarah used are vintage, we don’t have any more in our store.  However, we do have all sorts of other cottage-friendly pieces for your summer reno so come in and get inspired!
