Robert Kulp (left) and Mike Whiteside started their salvaging business, Black Dog Salvage, on a whim in 1999, but they soon realized it was no mistake. Besides salvaging, they also create and sell one-of-a-kind treasures, like this door panel coffee table, in their Roanoke, Va., showroom. Here are 19 of their coolest projects as seen on Salvage Dawgs.
Quite the showstopper, Black Dog Salvage created these bookcases from salvaged iron and horse-kicked wood from The Homestead Stables in Hot Springs, Va. The arched, blue doors were claimed from the Washington Mills factory in Mayodan, NC. Those mid-century modern-inspired chairs? They're made from reclaimed Old Navy clothing racks.
