While working on a kitchen renovation Apartment Therapy's Annie Werble uncovered a structural column smack dab in the middle of their design. To incorporate the discovery into the scheme, they set vintage railroad ties on all sides of the concrete structure, and the gorgeous patina of the wood makes the eyesore melt away.
Check out the rest from those resourceful folks over at: Apartment Therapy.
And if you happen to be looking for reclaimed wood in your area the Building Materials Reuse Association is a great place to start.

This Old House has a nice list of homes that are only $1 or in some cases Free!
This one for example, located in Middleborough, Massachusetts will cost you only $1.00 US to purchase. The only catch is that you have to relocate it.
The owner of a furniture store in Middleborough is looking to expand. Problem is this lovely, albeit dilapidated 1876 Italianate is in the way. So the owner, Robert Saquet, is looking to give the place to anyone willing to move it from its current location on a bustling commercial strip, to more peaceful environs elsewhere. The house, originally built for a 19th-century businessman named Otis Briggs, was once part of a complex of livery stables, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Call Robert Saquet at 508-947-0680 for more information.
Here's the whole list thanks to the smart folks over at This Old House: $1 Homes for the Holidays.

Everyone loves a great collection of books. When we have visitors, they spend a lot of their time checking out each and every book we have in our collection — there are so many things about the feel of libraries that make us want to stay there forever. So why not combine a place we go every single day, with a place we never want to leave?
Check out some more great examples of Library Dining Rooms.
Thanks to Apartment Therapy.
