Salvage Style – Feat. Kent & Tammy Myers

Image

Someday I will have time to post something new everyday, but for now I am going to have to find peace with posting when I can.

Recently my Dad sent me a picture of a project he was working on.  He called it ‘Salvage Style’ and I was reminded what makes me, me!  My parents taught me a lot but two major characteristics stand out, that both my Mom and Dad contributed to the make-up of me, and those being; creative and resourceful.  I can remember several times that my mom would bring home a picture of something and my dad would construct her dream project into a reality.  Depending on how large the project was, my dad, often was able to use scrape wood or used items finding them anywhere and everywhere.

‘Salvage Style’ was found from the Magazine This Old House.

This project materials are:

A pulley ($10-$12)

Sisal Rope (Typically bought in bulk, 50ft=$9)

Wiring (Had on hand) – This is very typical of my dad, he has a detached garage that he works in with everything you can imagine, we have spent many wonderful hours working on projects together.

Light Socket ($4)

My heart swells up when I talk about my Dad because his handyman skills and captivating personality are the perfect mix.  He is patient and answers all of my badgering questions, and let me tell you I ask A LOT of questions.  I am a child soaking in all of his craftsman knowledge and wisdom.

If you are interested in finding DIY projects here are a couple resources that my dad and I have used in the past;
