Reclaim Reuse Repurpose

The design of this bathroom was all about using reclaimed materials.  The bathroom tile was found in a seconds bin at a tile shop.  The antique shelves used to part of a tool shed.  The vintage blue jars where picked up at an antique shop. The door is from an architectural salvage shop that was stripped and left natural. The recycled glass block was placed high enough to let in eastern light on a sloped site.  It's fun to shoot a tall image with so many layers of materials lined up vertically and then off-set by the soft, rounded edges of the jars and flowers.
