A contemporary platform bed is customized with newly slipcovered headboard and sideboard pillows. A happy mix of reclaimed furnishings feels right at home in this second-floor space.

A wood and metal school chair cozies up to a walnut storage shelf, stocked with children’s books, board games and fishing equipment.

Lending visual interest, a chrome-topped, Shaker-style nightstand is home to a table lamp crafted from old thread spools and a vintage single-speed fan manufactured by the Superior Electronics Products Corporation.

Storytelling continues in a corner of the room, where a design vignette pulls together a primitive oak cabinet, a painted Windsor side chair and a reading lamp.

Storage space includes a small closet and an oak cabinet, an ideal catchall for toys and sports equipment.

Tabletop appointments include a vintage Globemaster globe and a circa-1950s TV table lamp.

In the center hall, statement pieces are displayed on a trestle table locally constructed from reclaimed materials. Fan brackets, salvaged from an early 20th-century porch front, recall the color and design of Blog Cabin’s original shutters.
