Toddlers Inspire Mid-Century Twist

The West End Salvage team meet their toughest challenge to date when they take on two adjoining rooms in a house overun by toddlers. With four little boys, all under the age of seven, Nicole and Phil have no clue on how to design a room that functions for all their needs. Building upon the Mid-Century bones of the living room and dining area, designer Hal Davis rearranges the space for better flow, but butts heads with owner Don Short on the materials for the room divider. Don insists the structure has to be kid-friendly, which forces Hal to come up with a clever idea. Using large, recycled metal letters, Hal's new plan serves two purposes. One, it's a great design element and two, it teaches the young boys the alphabet. To make family dinners more harmonious, the team turns an old optical wooden spool into a dynamic dining table, complete with a built-in Lazy Susan. In addition to all these projects, the team also takes on another client who gives Hal a run for his money when he changes his design request multiple times. What first started as an elegant wine cabinet made from a vintage English sideboard morphs into a stunning vanity for the client's girlfriend. West End Salvage comes through again with repurposing discarded items into stellar custom-made pieces and designing a gorgeous family-friendly space.
