Bauer Bros Salvage

We’re renovating our Brooklyn brownstone so we decided to hit up some architectural salvage shops while in St. Paul Minnesota. First up, Bauer Bros Salvage.

Bauer Bros is everything I would hope a salvage shop would be, with 93,000 sq. ft. warehouse of items both old and new. Everything is well organized into categories, bath tubs, radiators, doors, molding, but we didn’t even make it around the whole facility.

There were some neat antiques.

And some truly specialized fixtures you could add as unique accents to your home. These boiler doors sit in front of genuine jail bars.

Fixing bathroom tiles

Time to fix some bathroom tiles with cutest crowbar.

I didn’t really use the tiny crowbar, I just scraped off the old grout, and filled the holes with caulk.

Then I adhered the tiles. I’ll be back next weekend to grout them.

Nothing says cutest hostess like Laduree’s Hello Kitty stationary. It’s fancy French meets cute Japanese. If only I had the HK liberty print fabric.

Glowing Mushrooms

Saturday was a gloomy day, and I was really in the mood for some felting. I decided to felt bioluminescent mushrooms. This is my third time felting and it’s taking a lot longer than I expected to finish.

We’ve recently purchased a brownstone and were looking through antique architectural salvage for our renovation, when we stumbled upon fancy toilets.
