We’ve always been the type of guys that would rather do it ourselves when it comes to improving the place we call home. Saving money is definitely a part of it, but the satisfaction that comes from finishing a project—regardless of how small—with our own two hands is only eclipsed in excellence by the cold brew we enjoy after. Unfortunately, there are only so many pipes that need to get run, shelves that need to get hung and projects that need doing, so you think about designing your own stuff from the ground up. If you’re anything like us, that’s where it ends. Recycled Brooklyn goes the whole nine yards with everything from benches made of wood planks salvaged from a film studio to tables created from salvaged bowling alley floor to padded benches covered in recycled coffee sacks. Being green has never been this manly.
