A Small Space Expands Into A Spacious Floor Plan

Scott and Kenny have an awkwardly laid out living and dining room combo with a small kitchen that they'd like the West End team to restructure. Designer Hal Davis' plan includes knocking down a wall to create one, harmonious room with better flow. Once that's done, the West End Salavage team takes on replacing the dated 1980s bannister with a hipper version made from salvaged, bullet-riddled windmill tails. The rough but modern look of the new railing makes a bold statement when you first enter the home. Owner Don Short buys an eight foot piece of rare walnut in its raw form to use as a dining table in Scott and Kenny's home. Designer Hal is on board with the idea, but not with Don's plan of repurposing aerated tubes from the bottom of a grain bin into a table base. They find themselves at odds with each other, but a compromise is found, and Hal adds criss cross rebar as a decorative element. The walnut table is clearly the showcase piece in the new space. Hanging above the table is a custom-made, two-tier chandelier upcycled from a variety of stained glass pieces. Scott and Kenny couldn't be happier with their new space.
