Reuse & Purpose: Gather 'Round

With so many uses for reclaimed wood, throwing away anything that comes from a tree these days almost seems like you're tossing out valuable design materials.

At Housing Works annual Design on a Dime benefit, the non-profit arts and and culture organization BOFFO used wooden shipping crates to create a one-of-a-kind dining room, complete with tables and chairs.

Once assembled, the rustic looking wooden surfaces were then treated to a painted, zig-zag effect, adding just enough color to give the pieces a finished look.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous
