Fast Furniture For Next To Nothing

Don’t give up on the stacks of your local library as a source for project ideas. “Low Tech: Fast Furniture For Next To Nothing” was last printed in 1984, but it was well worth a browse.

4 of my favorite projects:

Bike seat / frame to barstool. Kind of obvious when you see it, huh?

I’m not sure why, but I find the giant-hand-holding-hose incredibly appropriate.

PVC piping becomes an easy shelf.

Kitchen retrofitted with corrugated plastic / metal cabinet covers. Stove is on rollers and powered by propane.

Low tech, high ingenuity!
