hey there! it’s me. the finder of cool things. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS ONE.
it’s an elevator. from the late 1800s – early 1900s. from a historic factory in poughkeepsie. shall i go on?
solid wood – as it had to carry humans up and down
awesome “reclaimed wood” patina that is so popular yet stylistically everlasting
slightly rusted metal gate windows – perfect for hanging things!
an ad-hoc coat rack – super industrial handmade style – built in!
carved wood detailing – original hardware (like the pulley on top) – signage in tact
i have styled it in the showroom to demonstrate how useful it would be as a mudroom locker however i have had customers say they would use it for the following…what would you make of it?
– time out corner (puhlease! i would totally get in trouble all the time if i got to hang here)
– reading nook
– semi-private lurking space (in the event you didn’t want to share your candy with your kids)
– telephone booth
– indoor garden
– pantry space
so many great ideas! i have only one condition – whomever purchases this amazing find MUST share a photo of it in its new home! pretty please?
