Making Old Things New

Given the fact that we are passionate about salvaging architectural antiques and goods, it warms our hearts to no end to see a finished project resulting from a customer’s creative vision. Daily we see salvaged goods and architectural finds go out the door but seldom have the opportunity to see the end result. We love it when our customers share their pictures with us. We are inspired by the transformations and relish the opportunity to share the photos with others in hopes of fueling their creative juices.

Southern Accents Architectural Antiques

One of our customers, Justin Dyar, recently shared a couple of pictures with us. This incredible residence which sits on the beautiful Smith Lake features salvaged wood from Southern Accents on both the floors and walls. Justin also installed salvaged tin on the ceiling in this downstairs room. When asked why he chose to use salvaged goods instead of new, Justin said that he wanted a modern style with a rustic feel. He chose to blend the use of salvaged items with new materials in an effort to create the look and feel of a weekend getaway. Justin also purchased an antique mantel from Southern Accents for use in this home. His motto, “the older and more scratched up the item is, the better it looks in my home!” We simply agree!

Southern Accents Architectural Antiques

Justin also chose to use a few antique items in the home’s decor. These old shutters, which were also purchased from us, are used as a focal piece behind the master bed. Justin also incorporated some old rustic iron pieces throughout the home.

When asked about his experience with Southern Accents, Justin replied; “Southern Accents has some of the most unique decor items and vintage materials that I have ever seen. I have been to many antique stores throughout Alabama and the Southeast, and Southern Accents in downtown Cullman has a better selection than anyone.” Thanks Justin… we’ll take that!

The use of salvaged goods and architectural antiques can add so much character to your home or business. It is also a way to contribute to the viability of our planet. The reuse of salvaged wood alone is a major step in the right direction. Come by and talk to us about your next building or remodeling project. We would love to help!

We would also love to see more finished project pictures from our customers! If you have an awesome picture you would like to share, please send it to Include your name and a little information about the architectural piece or salvaged items purchased from Southern Accents and how you used them.
