The Interior Lovins’

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Here are some of the handmade, reclaimed, and/or repurposed items that went into the making of the Yeti’s interior.

Justin built this Swedish bed and coffee table. The wood for the coffee table came from old crates. The wall hanging may not be from central Asia but it is handmade and it is special to us as a dear and one of my oldest friends brought it back for me from India.

We were lucky enough to find this school house light at the Habitat for Humanity store. The live edge shelves are special to me as I got them from a local saw mill that is owned by a wonderful man and one of my first soccer coaches who I’ll be for ever grateful to for teaching me the game of soccer that I’m still in love with and playing to this day. The antique pedestal table with pressed back chairs I got in an auction at the Salvation Army, that I admit my emotions got the better of me and my competitive side took over.

My mom and I sewed this shower curtain with Skinny laMinx screen-printed fabric which is called ‘Herds’ and my little nod to the nomad culture and their herds. The towel ladder is made from Tamarack trees that we salvaged from a farmer who had logged a portion of their land but these poles were too small for their end purposes. It was great for us as the wood helped heat our house one winter and we’ve used it in many a project around here.¬† Justin made the mirror frame and shelf¬† both were also made from reclaimed wood. Although not visible the vanity light we also got from the Habitat for Humanity store which we rewired and spray painted.

Looking into the bathroom.
