New furniture….

I had some “free time” the other night, so I decided to pick through some scrap at the sculpture studio and make some furniture out of it.

Here are some simple shelves I made out of scrap wood and painted using some old paint someone was just going to throw away:

I decided we also needed a night stand and I wanted to bring the island motif INSIDE of the island, so I made this out of scrap foam, plexiglass, and paint.

There is something quite satisfying about turning scrap into art.  I cannot wait to see what Mike and I make out of the materials donated to us through island trade.  Do you have anything you do not want anymore which you are likely to throw away?  Bring it to 100 Acres this summer and trade it for something Mike and I have previously made.   In return, we hope to transform it into something “new.”

    Cool! Love your new furniture. Great use of found (or given) materials.

  • Heather Says:

    so I can’t come see you this summer but could I mail something to you to trade?

  • Jessica Says:

    We will ask the IMA if there will be a way for mail to be send to us while we are on the island. Good idea! I hope that works.
