Robert Kulp (left) and Mike Whiteside started their salvaging business, Black Dog Salvage, on a whim in 1999, but they soon realized it was no mistake. Besides salvaging, they also create and sell one-of-a-kind treasures, like this door panel coffee table, in their Roanoke, Va., showroom. Here are 19 of their coolest projects as seen on Salvage Dawgs.
Black Dog Salvage comes across vintage tubs often, like the one that Robert and Ted Ayers removed from a 78-year-old church in Salisburg, N.C. This "Breakfast at Tiffany's" couch was upcycled from a vintage bathtub.
