Legacy Architectural Salvage: Featured Finds

Bringing our warehouse to your fingertips.

Every day, a new treasure finds its way into Legacy Architectural Salvage.
Here, you’ll find a small sample of our latest and greatest architectural salvage, antiques, and vintage finds!

Salvaged Wood Planks: $6-7/ft

Our reclaimed dimensional wood offers the ultimate in creative options. Rescued from a home on South 7th Street (built in the mid- to late 1800s), these textured pieces feature saw markings and holes from knob and tube wiring, as well as the original hand-forged nails. You cannot buy wood like this at Lowes or Home Depot! This is the kind of character that only hundreds of years can create. What do you envision for these pieces of history? We can’t wait to see how our customers bring new life to these gorgeous boards!  

The thinner planks (1’x11′ to 1’x13′) are priced at $6/ft. The thicker planks (2’x9′ to 2’x10′) are $7/ft. 

Pictured with salvaged beams and porch posts, also for sale. 

Salvaged Porch Posts: $175 each

We’ve got two towering antique porch posts for sale at the warehouse! Nearly 9 feet tall, these pieces of salvage are ready for their next adventure, and their size opens up a fun range of upcycling opportunities! Use them to create a custom awning for a garden path, or build a charming bookshelf with these posts framing each side of the shelves. Affix them to the ends of a headboard or footboard for a dramatic two-poster bed, or remove a little length and add hooks to the top and feet to the bottom for a cute coat rack!

Dimensions: 5 1/4” wide x 107 1/2” tall x 5 1/4” deep

Pictured with salvaged beams, also for sale. 

Salvaged Wood Beams: $550-750 (priced according to size)

Reclaimed wood beams add warmth and texture to any space. Hundreds of years old, this salvaged wood once served as joists, supporting a 19th century home on South 7th Street. Be sure to note the mortise groove, which the tenon would fit inside to form a connective joint. It’s details like this that make these pieces of built history oh so special!

Dimensions: Beams are between 82″ and 104″ tall.

Glass Door Knob with Door Plate & Mortise Lock: $50

We fall in love with every crystal knob that finds its way into our warehouse. There’s a small universe in each one’s center, with cuts refracting light within. We’re swooning over these 12-point fluted knobs, which come with the original Art Deco metal door plates and mortise lock! Stop by the warehouse  to shop our full collection of salvaged knobs and other hardware.

Vintage Double Bowl Sink: $100

This double bowl sink is perfect to add vintage flair to any kitchen! This top mount beauty is made of cast iron coated in porcelain. This style of sink is in high demand, but there’s no need to buy a reproduction when you can get the real deal at Legacy Architectural Salvage!

Dimensions: 42″ wide x 21″ deep

6-Panel Doors: $145 each

Rarely do we have a find like this to share with you! We have four 24” 6-panel doors in stock, all dating back to the 1870s and salvaged from a 5th Avenue home. In addition to their petite size, likely used to mark the entrance to a pantry or closet in their former lives, these doors also feature charming tin backplates with inset corners. Add a vintage knob of your choice, and these doors are ready for their encore! Or flip one and mount it horizontally above a bed for a unique headboard!

Dimensions: 24” wide x 71 1/2” tall

Mid-Century Modern Mirror: $75

Surrounded by a warm, light-toned wooden frame with rounded edges, this early mid-century mirror is simple in its lines but a standout in its charm!

Dimensions: 28” wide x 42 1/2” tall

10-Gallon Milk Can: $75

Check out this farm fresh find, the first of its kind we recall having at the warehouse: an antique 10-gallon milk can! Dressed in a beautiful patina of black and red accumulated over the years, this piece is destined to shine in its next chapter of life! It would look great in a garden display, or top it with a pane of glass for a gorgeously unique table.

Dimensions: 12 1/2” wide x 24” tall

Art Deco Door Plates: $10 each

With about a dozen in stock, you could buy the set of these vintage door plates and add some historic charm to all the interior doors in your house. If that’s not your style, the upcycling options are endless!

Dimensions: 2 1/4” wide x 7” tall

Antique Railing: $250

This section of railing, punctuated on each side by sturdy newel posts, once marked the landing of a stairway in a historic house on 5th Avenue. Dating back to the 1870s, this piece is destined for another 150 years of use—but the question is, in what form? Will it perhaps grace a garden as a trellis, with green tendrils snaking up the railing posts? The possibilities are endless, and we hope to see how one of our customers refurbishes or upcycles this piece of architectural salvage!

Dimensions: 38 1/2” wide x 38” tall x 7 5/8” deep

Antique Hot & Cold Faucet Knobs: $250

These faucet knobs from the late 19th century to early 20th century ooze charm! How dreamy would they look installed atop an antique porcelain basin? Daily chores like washing hands or brushing teeth wouldn’t be nearly so dreary with these knobs in view!

Dimensions: 7 3/8” tall x 5 1/4” deep

Antique Lintels: $25 (small pieces) & $45 (large pieces)

Lots of lintels, large and small! Long used to adorn the doorways in a Fifth Avenue home, these pieces of architectural salvage are now ready for their next adventure! Beneath the final coat of creamy white paint on each lintel, layers of robin’s egg blue and salmon-y pink peek out. 

Dimensions (Smaller Pieces): 38-45″ wide x 7″ tall
Dimensions (Large Pieces):
72-77″ wide x 8″ tall

Antique Rocking Chair: $75

This child-sized rocking chair from the early 20th century is still swinging—literally! Darling details like the wingback-inspired sides deliver a huge dose of charm to this diminutive piece, which once belonged to a Legacy volunteer’s mother.

Dimensions: 10 3/4” wide x 24 1/2” tall (seat height, 9 3/4”) x 17 3/4” deep

Small Chair with Rush Seat: $50

Here’s another petite seat we’ve got in stock at the warehouse! This one features an antique rush seat, a detail that adds to the chair’s charm! Plus, we love the tonal pattern on the wooden frame, reminiscent of the sgraffito technique in ceramics where a design is scratched onto a glaze to reveal a contrasting color below.

Dimensions: 17 1/4” wide x 32” tall (seat height, 16 1/2”) x 13 1/2” deep

Antique Parlor Chair: $40

The carved details along the crest of this upholstered parlor chair are divine, featuring an abundance of natural elements—leaves, fruits, nuts. We luxe feel of the piece continues throughout its framing, with its shapely curves. Set atop casters, this piece is ready to roll right out the door!

Dimensions: 22 5/8” wide x 42 1/2” tall (seat height, 16 1/2”) x 22 3/4” deep
