This gorgeous gleaming modern pendant from Community Forklift is just as much modern art piece as it is light fixture! Thanks for supporting our reuse nonprofit and helping us prevent usable materials from ending up in landfills.

This glass-doored cabinet from our reuse warehouse got an entirely new look courtesy of MCH Furniture Restoration! The contrast between the white and wood-grained interior and the sleek black exterior looks great. Thanks for saving this beautiful piece of furniture from the landfill and giving it a fabulous new reuse! Photos by @mch.furniturerestoration (Instagram)

With a new finish and a stone remnant from our reuse warehouse, Tyler Whitmore Interiors gave this antique cabinet a whole new look! They had the remnant cut at Flintstone Marble and Granite Inc in Rockville and actually had enough to top two salvaged furniture pieces. Thanks for helping conserve resources and keep usable materials out the landfill! Photos by Tyler Whitmore Interiors

This salvaged chandelier from our reuse warehouse is the crystal icing on the living room cake in this Capitol Hill home! From a Forklift Fan: “Always looking for ways to restore character to this 1895 home that was mostly gutted 40 years ago. Running power to the ceiling for this chandelier from Community Forklift was easier than I imagined and I’m thrilled with the result.” Thanks for supporting our reuse nonprofit and finding a home for this beautiful fixture!

Check out the new sign at Vigilante Coffee Co. in Hyattsville! Joseph Margot Workshop (Instagram: @josephmargot_workshop) created it using Treincarnation live edge lumber from our reuse warehouse. The woodgrain and natural shape are fantastic! Thanks for supporting our reuse nonprofit and using salvaged materials in your projects! Photos by Vigilante Coffee Co.
