Reclaimed = Awesome & Eco-Friendly

I absolutely love design that incorporates reclaimed elements.  I recently moved into a new house and pretty much had a suitcase, a few boxes and no furniture.  One item I knew I wanted was a reclaimed wood dining table.  I searched all over for reclaimed furniture.  I found a lot of beautiful pieces, many were quite pricey, so I continued on my search for some down and dirty reclaimed sources.  Craigslist is super handy and I came across a local guy that builds reclaimed tables as a hobby.  He came over, we measured the space and sketched it up.  I asked for old barn wood with a golden tone and that’s what I got.  I went ahead and had benches made too.  In 3 days I had a dining room set with tons of character.  Of course now I’m totally addicted to custom building all kinds of reclaimed wood pieces for my house.  My next project is going to be a headboard out of pallets, wish me luck!

Unique isn't it? I got the additional chairs on Craigslist too. I like the eclectic look.

  1. Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of “Green” environmentalism, animal rights activism, eco-friendliness, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, “dumpster diving,” “buying organic,” etc.). I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms.
