  1. This has zoomed to the top of my inspiration list! We are currently building a smaller and curvier version, but I’ve spent so much time stripping paint from reclaimed building materials I was unsure whether it was worth it. In theory I like the look of reused wood, but to see it all come together so beautifully in Lily’s “pad” is encouraging! The reclaimed floor, the patina on the bookshelves, that amazing bathroom door. Thank you for featuring this build, THL.
