    Changing Seasons

    As we put our boats away, close up the pools, box up our bathing suits, and feel the warmth of the sun fade into a cool breeze we can know that the seasons are changing here in Northern Michigan. With brightly colored leaves and the abundant harvests of Pure Michigan apples, it is clear to see fall is here to stay. 

     

     

    With fall and the season of harvest in front of us, it makes us all think of Thanksgiving and time spent around the dining room table together. Although 2020 has been one of the strangest years; from our politics to developing new ways of going to the grocery store, family gatherings and relationships are still what we can cling to for comfort. So, as you are preparing for your large or small gatherings this fall season there are a few things you might be considering;

     

    The Table:

    The table is the place that you eat, play, and converse so why not have it custom-made to suit your space and style. At Great Lakes Reclaimed were offering a custom cottage pine round (60" in diameter) table with a pedestal base for your holiday gatherings. If this style table isn't the right fit for your home gatherings, email us with your personal design wishlist and we can help customize something for you!   

     

    The Decor:

    Now that you have your gathering place planned out, you may want to add your custom flare.  What better way to do so than with an arrangement of Plush Pumpkins! The beauty in these pumpkins is more than just the huge color selection, they also add texture and softness to round out your table style. The Plush Pumpkins can be used for making your space unique up until the Christmas tree goes up without any rotting! 

     

    The Food:

    Your gathering place is custom to your space and your style, but now what do you serve? 

    With it being apple and pumpkin season, how about making either a delicious pumpkin pie or this beautiful apple crisp to fill the bellies and souls of your guests.  

    Below is a delicious pumpkin pie recipe from epiccurious.com

    The barn was built mainly of hemlock which falls under the pine category. All of its beams are hand hewn. We take a great amount of satisfaction in being able to salvage these beams and fashion them into beautiful, functional furniture.

    The Barn Kaleidoscope

    The Barn Kaleidoscope

    All the barns we reclaim have a story.  They have a personality.  Many times they are just plain worn out and are inviting us to take them down.  To give them some peace and rest from the wind and weather.   Its as if the wood is ready to come inside and start its new life as a table, cabinet or wall covering...

    This small grey barn was a little different.  It was in good shape and had maintained itself thru many a Michigan winter.  When i got inside it the sun popped out and created some unique patterns with the wood and light.  I just stood inside and enjoyed the picture show. The patterns and colors were like being on the inside of a black and white kaleidoscope.  A memory i will never forget.   This barn gave me more than wood for a table.
