Note from Design Mom: While I’m busy with the move to France, I’ve got a crew of talented Guest Moms filling in for me. Rachel has fantastic taste and I love the find she has for us today. Enjoy!

I love furniture made from recycled objects, especially when the original pieces provide a bit of character and nostalgia to the furniture. It’s good for the environment as well, reducing the amount of new waste we put into the earth. Recreate is an interior design company from artist/designer Katie Thompson that specializes in the creation of recycled furniture pieces, utilizing what most people would see as discarded “junk”. One of my favorite pieces is the Ammo Crate Sidetable.

The table features original locking mechanisms, stenciled lettering, and thick rope handles. The crate originally stored night warfare equipment and illuminating mortar bombs. Not to worry, though, this piece won’t ignite any controversy anymore, but would surely spark great conversation.
