#11 - Johnny and Adam's Vintage Nature Nook

Name: Johnny and Adam
Location: Ann Arbor, MI
Size & Type: 450 sq. ft. one bedroom

Favorite resource: Salvation Army Thrift Store. The one in Ann Arbor has a huge, constantly rotating selection.

Pitch: Our apartment - once a tiny doctor's office (the reception window still separates the kitchen and dining room) - is now a vintage nature nook with bold color combinations, lots of retro art, reused/rescued furniture, and creative use of space.

Pitch Cont'd:On the very low budgets of one student and one artist, we painted, rescued discarded furniture, decoupaged an insipid shelving unit with fabulous retro-reproduction fabric, designed a dual-purpose storage/drying area for dishes and pots in the kitchen, and stashed extra seating and appliances in out-of-sight nooks and crannies throughout the apartment.

Your favorite element: A vintage salon chair we found on the curb. It still works, provides comfortable seating, and we use it regularly!
