The high concentration of Community Forklift finds in this photo is breathtaking! The buffet, lamps, rug and even the dinner plates are all from the reuse warehouse. Thanks to Kelly and Jon for giving these salvaged materials a new home and supporting our nonprofit!
Peggy paneled this fireplace wall in her basement using salvaged doors and other materials from Community Forklift’s reuse warehouse. Fantastic! I love how the door handle above the fireplace doubles as a hook for artwork. Upcycling for the win!
This shower renovation looks amazing and – even better – uses salvaged materials! The thin, gray rows of accent tile are from Community Forklift. Using two different types of tile is a great way to incorporate salvaged tile into your space when there isn’t enough of either tile to use alone. Also, necessity is the mother of invention, and you can get some creative results too!
Peggy created this awesome basement bar using salvaged materials from Community Forklift! The upcycled red worktable is topped with a reused door with a salvaged tile work surface inset where the glass once rested. Genius! Thanks for sharing your space, Peggy!

Every time you donate or shop at Community Forklift, you’re helping us lift up local communities through reuse.
