Idea Home: A 100-year-old burr oak on museum grounds fell over during a storm. We reclaimed the wood to make a striking cement-and-wood dining table top, along with a coffee table in the living room, headboard in the master bedroom and three “stump” tables in the lounge area.
Your home: Before buying new, consider giving a second life to existing materials, such as vintage furniture, salvaged building materials or wood from downed trees.
