CABIN CLOSET

A restoration and remodeling project in the woods.

  Knotty-pine, birch plywood, antique linoleum.  The closet was grim at Cabin 48 in the Angeles National Forest. Fluorescent lighting had to go, and the room was badly out of square. The space would have to be gutted to turn it into a functional and pleasant space.

Antique Linoleum Restoration

Antique Linoleum Restoration

A previous rehab of the cabin uncovered this piece of linoleum that dates to the 1930s. To say it was in bad shape would be a gross understatement, but my clients had always pictured it getting reused somewhere.

 It was cracked and filthy, but I thought it might work with a thorough cleaning and  creative splicing.
