Rebuilding

So we've been working hard refinihsing a TON of furniture, procured from thrift stores and the Rebuilding Center. Actually, most of it came from the latter. 4 chairs, two drawers that we turned into shelves (my creative genius at work- one for my bedroom and one for the kitchen), a kitchen table, a headboard and mirror/cabinet and stand for Lynnette's room, and a monstrous cabinet we'll use as a kitchen pantry.

I will share photos and how-tos for most of these projects soon (still not quite finished). But FIRST! I want to share the Rebuilding Center. The most magical place in the land.

the trees are made out of recycled parts

salvaged doors

so many windows!

look at all that salvaged flooring!

more vents than I've ever seen in my life

does anyone need to go? now's the time.

yes it is

So I volunteered at a similar place in New Orleans this past spring, The Green Project (a VERY cool place), but the Rebuilding Center is MUCH larger and much more arty. The cashier is THE coolest woman on the entire planet. It's worth it to go just for her.

I'm pretty sure I'm in love with this place. And we still need to go back to find a wooden knob for our pantry (haha, wooden knob. grow up, Andy).
