Welcome to the Shop.
This cozy garage studio is where I find some solitude, listen to music and paint. One of my favourite spaces in the house.
I'm Elise, the creator of The Salvage Yard Co.
The purpose of starting this hobby/business is to take quality, previously loved furniture and home decor that has seen better days and reimagine it in a way that meets the tastes of today. It is a way to keep things out of landfills and, let's face it, it's a way for me to indulge my creative side.
As someone who's background is based in the fine arts and design, nothing gets me more excited than imagining a piece of furniture and how it will fit into a space and bringing that into being. The only thing I enjoy as much, if not more, is styling these pieces and photographing them for the site.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you find something that inspires you too.
