A few weekends ago, my husband and I ventured out to Discount Home Warehouse in Dallas looking for vintage exterior pieces for the house.  I had never been there before but had heard great things from a few different people in the design district.  I soon came to discover that they were right- it is a random hidden gem off Empire Central!

DHW is perfect for finding those salvaged, vintage pieces that can make any room come together.  It is a local warehouse for building materials and architectural pieces that have come out of homes that are being remodeled or completely taken down in the metroplex.  They have everything from cabinetry and mantels, to outdoor accessories for your garden.  They even have a wishlist that you can make and they’ll give you a call when what you’re looking for comes in! If you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind piece on a budget, Discount Home Warehouse is definitely the place to go.

Here are a few of my “finds” when we were there-

Living in an old 1933 home, we definitely could use a few of these esutcheon replacements-


Adorable gold and crystal antique chandeliers-


Lucite, lucite, lucite! I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they had pieces like acrylic trays and coffee tables-


Tons of beveled mirrors at great prices-


Black granite remnants at a steal!


If you are looking for lanterns, this is your room!


White carrara marble remnant- only $150!


You really never know what you will find here…


Cute little twin headboard and footboard-


Salvaged door heaven-


And… a plethora of garden accessories and iron gates.  Ben and I went to look for a vintage gate and we couldn’t believe that we found the perfect size- 12′ wide x 80″ tall- what are the chances? Now I’ll just be spending the next few months refinishing it 🙂


New stuff comes in everyday, so start that wishlist and keep checking it out!
