You know I'm going to take you on a tour...
How silly I was to make that assessment while still standing in the front room. The building is extremely long and as I moved through it, things got more and more interesting.
Get ready...this post is about to get really, really cool.
That's a wall of vintage door hardware. The assortment of knobs was awesome.
Ugh. I wish my iphone had been in focus for those beautiful knobs.
Moving into the middle of the building, I started to have fun...
And then there was a sign that said "more back here" which led me to the best room of all. The warehouse. The warehouse is probably 2-2 1/2 stories tall, to give you a sense of how tall some of these things were...
All of the piles of wood were twice my height. I was actually a little nervous walking around them.
That huge white piece is a set of double doors. I'd say that thing is easily 12 feet tall.
Outside, there was even more...
I was actually there for the huge, slate roofing tiles. We used them as place mats for a shoot I styled a few weeks ago. I crawled around pulling tiles out of their bins for quite some time until I had the perfect set. Once that shoot is published, I'll share the pictures of the table. The tiles looked so cool against the ruffled, white china we used.
