Landfill decor

At our field station in Galaxidi we use several items found trashed in dumps or the side of country roads. Nice wooden furniture and other stuff that we passionately fix, assemble, sandpaper, paint and bring to new life.

This photo album features some of the items we have been rescuing so far. We believe that recycling relics made of real wood is sometimes better than buying furniture made of engineered pseudo-wood. Such DYI practice helps reduce our expenditures – while adding a personal touch to the field station.
