I want to pay tribute to some inspiring eco-friendly DIY projects that I've stumbled upon, so concocted this first list of Top Ten, not in order of preference. I plan on posting a Top Ten each month, so I can share others' creations without always having to tackle them myself.
Funky Junk Interiors provides an excellent tutorial on how to make stairs out of old wood crates.
Recycling Tomorrow created a cool lamp out of a recycled mint green hair dryer.
Italian furniture designer Manoteca constructed this gorgeous table from an old wood door.
German designer Gabriel Wiese collects recycled corks to create one-of-a-kind cork chairs, and they look comfortable!
Bluebird Heaven makes all sorts of racks and shelves to help organize home spaces. This one in particular stands out to me.

I love this recycled soda can pendant by Reduce Reuse Redecorate. It adds a rustic yet classy flare to any room.
I refer to Posh Fairytale Couture for design ideas that could be used to inspire creations for Confluence's annual Recycled Fashion Show.

With my love of mosaics, I am a particular fan of art that incorporates recycled glass. Red Yellow and Blue Ink constructs fabulous bird feeders using colorful glass from recycled traffic lights.
