Newburgh Last Satudays are back for the month of June with some exciting events happening this month. This is a day when businesses stay open later and special events happen to encourage tourism and economic development of downtown Newburgh. For all the events go to the fanpage.

For this Saturday, “Emanations” will be on display at Space Create, 115 Broadway, Newburgh, NY. The exhibition begins June 8 and ends July 7.

Anyone who can custom make their own butcher block has some skills in my book. That might not be saying much, but Jon at 45 Henry sure did a great job creating a custom built-in for their laundry area and a vanity for their bathroom. They scored this year old washer and dryer from Craigslist for only $650. The finished product looks incredible! Don’t you want a laundry like this?


Now on to the bathroom vanity. Back in November 2014 we saw their new bathroom with the refurbished tub surrounded by new white subway tile. For the vanity Jon used wood he reclaimed from the house, mostly fir. The counter top was finished off with Carrera marble.





The finished product below!



Jon says everything fit it because he triple measured everything. Well done!

16 Henry Ave Newburgh NY

Newburghs most famous row house is for sale. Blogger, Anna Dorfman and her husband Evan, are selling their beloved home in the Heights for a list of reasons. All of them are personal and have nothing to do with Newburgh. If somehow you don’t know her blog, Door Sixteen, it is a very popular blog that Anna used to chronicle the renovations of her home, as well as other topics. She’s pretty much the reason I created Newburgh Restoration. The house is the quintessential row home that has been tastefully updated and lovingly preserved. It’s been featured on countless websites and magazines. Not to mention this is a great block in Newburgh and has wonderful views from the Bluff of the Hudson River.
