This is an image of the bathroom in my office.  Thanks to the Habitat Re-Store I was able to score some great finds.  I re-purposed a medicine cabinet mirror, a feed scoop & a cabinet door that I used to make a cute sign.  The adorable pedestal sink was from there as well as the hardwood distressed flooring.  I can thank our good friend Eric for help with some of the tasks of remodeling the bathroom.  The awesome lights were from Light Art, thanks to Emma who found just what I was after.  The hand soap dispenser, hand towels & bath mat were from Walmart & the shower curtain came from Bed, Bath & Beyond.  The beautiful accent color is my favorite Valspar paint from Kroeger's in the town plaza shopping center.

This pallet wall was one that I designed, created & installed at the Durango Hair Company in the Main Mall here in Durango.  It is a main feature of the newly remodeled space.  I incorporated reclaimed wood from the old Smiley building which I found at Durango Salvage.  I purposefully laid out the pieces and assigned the colors.  This was to match the color scheme of teal walls, rustic design & dark wood treatments I implemented throughout the salon renovation.  Also shown are before & after shots of the cabinet doors.

This rolling pallet bath cart was a custom designed project.  It fits perfectly between the corrugated metal wall & the edge of the slanted high end of the clawfoot tub in the owner's home.  The heavy timber foot stool was previously part of a balcony rail & staircase for the same homeowners.


Bulletin Board -

Calling all leathersmiths... if there is such a thing actually.  A gentleman here in Durango is interested in having a coat created out of an elk hide he has.  The coat will need to be similar to the one worn by Brad Pitt in the movie "Legends Of The Fall".  If you have the skill to conquer such a task, get in touch with me through my website contact form and I will put you in touch with Matt to discuss the project further.

Sharla Dyar Broker Associate with the Keller Williams Realty Southwest Associates has this listing currently.  A very nice home featuring something for everyone in my opinion.  I enjoyed doing the photo shoot there with her.

A big heartfelt Thank You to all the personnel helping in so many ways with the fires, evac centers, call centers, online updates, animal rescues, host homes and everything else.
