Have You Been Pinned?

Southern Accents has developed a fascination with Pinterest over the past year. We enjoy seeing all the creative ideas, specifically projects that re-purpose salvaged goods, turning them into useful items or beautiful works of art. We appreciate that Pinterest provides a venue for us to showcase pictures of our own creations as well as those of our customers. We have created a Pinterest board titled “Project Spotlight”. On this board we have pinned completed project pictures from Southern Accents as well as many from our awesome customers.

This picture was sent to us by Sara Lassiter. Sara purchased the salvaged industrial cart from Southern Accents and turned it into a beautiful conversation piece. This is another one of our favorite finished project pictures!

Working in the architectural salvage business, most items enter and exit our store as salvage. We LOVE that our customers browse through our showroom and warehouses and see the beauty and potential of the old, used, often worn items. We get excited when they select a piece and share with us their ideas and vision of what they want to do with it. Unfortunately, we don’t often get to see the finished project. Except… on the occasions when our customers send us pictures of those finished projects! In case we haven’t said this before, we LOVE to receive pictures from our customers! Small piles of salvaged wood turned into a work of art, a spectacular antique mantel that finds a new home, an old door restored to it’s former beauty… seeing pictures of the finished projects inspires us in our continued efforts to rescue these architectural treasures.

Ed and Laura Sergeant purchased the porch that we salvaged from an 1890 Victorian house in Little Rock, Arkansas and had it added to their own beautiful home. This is one of our favorite finished project pictures!

This past week we have been gathering many of the wonderful pictures that have been emailed to us or posted on our Facebook page this past year. We invite you to browse our Pinterest board and see if you have been PINNED! If not, we invite you to send us your pictures! If you have purchased items from Southern Accents in the past, we want to see pictures of your finished projects. Please feel free to post pictures to our Facebook page or e-mail them to lisa@sa1969.com. Please include your name and any information that you would like to share with us about your project. We look forward to seeing and sharing your work!
