I love the looks of this coffee table that?? Saídos da Concha posted to our Fresh New Spaces Group on Flickr:

It’s an upcycled pallet with some simple wheels attached and some very nice styling. The geraniums are the perfect touch. For more lovely photographs and images from her handmade life, check out Concha’s blog. She even has very simple instructions for how to make this table.

Green Product of the Week: Wasted Coffee Table

We are totally digging the designs over at dylan gold this week. Everything they make forces you to think “Hmmph, check out that little twist” or “Ha! That’s clever!” or “Why didn’t I think of that?” However, the piece that gives us the environmentally friendly happy glow is the one that reuses waste pieces of wood and puts them together into a beautiful piece of furniture. The Wasted #1 and Wasted #2 coffee tables are modern and clean, yet they pulled together from a patchwork of scraps, which is very apparent. It’s a great dichotomy. I also like the idea that each one they make will be dictated by which pieces they collect, and thus will be unique. There’s nothing like having a piece of furniture that no one else will ever have.

Wasted #1

What makes it green? Materials may vary, but those shown are Europly, Marine ply, exotic and domestic hardwoods – scrap pieces that would otherwise have wound up in a landfill.
It is coated in water-based polyurethane.
