Reclaiming Beautiful

 

Salvaged, reclaimed, recycled call it what you wish but don't call it junk. Imagination and inspiration can save some of the highest quality materials from ending up in landfills. Instead of clearing our remaining forests, quarries and mines, we can harvest or restore our crumbling buildings. You can't find this stuff in a big box store.

Sometimes you can upscale ugly.
