  • Christopher Gillis and Craig Dauphinee love having fun retro finds in their summer home in Lequille, N.S. In the loft, an old record player (that still works) and a bright spray-painted coffee table add vintage flair.
  • The spray-painted wood headboard in the spare bedroom is a window from an old church in Granville Ferry, N.S. The swanky red lamps came from Treasures and Collectibles in Upper Granville.
  • Hickey found this spotlight in a junk heap. Cleaned up and rewired, it’s now industrial-chic décor.
  • Hickey's upcycled side table features reclaimed fence boards.
  • Sappho Griffin found this wooden table in the trash. She gave it a plush carpeted top and it’s now an elegant addition to her living room.
  • Re-inventing quality vintage pieces is a great way to be environmentally conscious. Aimee Swikit got this vintage couch for free on Kijiji and reupholstered it for a sleek, modern look.
