West End Salvage



"West End Salvage" follows Don Short and his crack team of pickers, carpenters and designers as they find and create amazing one-of-a-kind pieces out of salvaged treasures. Whether they're prying unusual details off the sides of old buildings or competing with quirky Midwest pickers for the ultimate find, they take their haul back to Don's 50,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Des Moines to spin gold out of straw. In the end, whether it's a lamp made from a bakery whisk or a bench fashioned from a pig trough, these items will ultimately become the centerpieces of stunning room makeovers for customers in the know.

Next: 2x04 -- The Guys Turn A Vintage Travel Trunk Into A Shelving Unit (Jan/28/2015)


When clients come to the shop with a vintage trunk, Don suggests turning the family heirloom into a six-foot high shelving unit. Although they are hesitant at first, the owners agree and the guys get busy slicing the unit into four pieces while preserving as much history as possible. Meanwhile, a picker brings by three old, oversized carts that were once used by The Des Moines Register to move piles of papers around their facilities. Don re-imagines the carts as dumbbell storage for a local gym and adds lightning rods and punched metal as decorative pieces. At the same time, the guys take an early 1900's icebox and convert it into album storage.


Prev: 2x03 -- When In Doubt, Expand a Table That Is (Jan/21/2015)


No space, no problem! This could be the new motto for the men at West End Salvage. When Audrey and Dylan bring the boys their most compact project to date, the guys rise to the challenge. Using some ingenuity from the early twentieth century, some salvage from their favorite spot, Iowa farms, and some old fashioned elbow grease, the guys come up with a fantastic solution to Audrey and Dylan's kitchen seating needs. The busy team even has time to build an elegant wine glass chandelier made of old farm wheels for Don's friend Kristi. But Rex has the icing on the cake, he takes an old, non-selling jukebox from the fourth floor and makes something supremely one of a kind.
