Trash Into Table!

I made this vibrant yellow table out of trash...yes trash! All of the materials were found at the landfill, in dumpsters, or were on their way to the landfill. The tabletop was a vent grate, which I decorated by weaving squares of  colored telecommunication through the openings. The frame of the table is made out of wood scraps that were left over from a window trim project and were on their way to the trash. I connected the tabletop to the frame with used furniture studs that were pulled off a dilapidated chair.
