This Victorian Design is on Fire, Literally

Buying an 1888 Queen Anne Victorian fixer-upper sounded like a good idea at first, but after a year of rennovating it themselves, Luke and Marissa are running out of steam. They want their living room and dining area to be unconventional, and to spark conversations, but they're not sure how to pull that off. Well, a design plan that revolves around setting a table on fire is bound to get everbody talking. The West End Salvage team comes up with a dramatic design plan that includes transforming a large hay hook into a hanging light fixture, building a coffee table out of a decorative widow's walk from a torn down Victorian home, and installing church corbels to divide the two rooms. They'll be plenty of discussion over the beautifully framed shadowbox containing vintage hair art that's hung on the wall. While incorporating hair from loved ones was a common practice in the Victorian era, it's not something we see a lot of in the 21st century. But the hottest project in the room has got to be their new sleek, black, fire-charred dining room table. Unlike any table they've ever seen, this stunning design was created by setting the table on fire, then applying multiple coats of Danish Oil. Luke and Marissa asked for something out of the ordinary, and the West End team delivered with high marks.
