ReUse and repurposing only requires creativity. In this remodeled living room we repurposed a 70 year old garage door into a mantle. We reused and refinished the original oak floors that were hidden under old carpet. To highlight the original stone work on the fireplace we added new stone over an old hearth and stainless steel trim around the opening. None of these features are perfect but they add to the charm, character, and story making this room unique.
