Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at one of our sustainable reuse interior projects? It’s a crazy every-changing puzzle of redesigning with reclaimed materials that rarely behave the way you want them to, scoping multiple locations for the right mix of reused office furniture, overcoming lack of having the perfect working environment (does that exist?), practicing flexibility and patience, and trying to maintain the vision and overall concept for the project. Whew! That was a mouthful! But that’s what it feels like. Sometimes a bit chaotic, but the rewards of a job well done… priceless.

For all of the ‘front end’ pretty pictures of the interior redesign project at the Oscar Fredrik Kyrka (church) fellowship hall, you can hop over to our portfolio page for a bit of ‘oooh-ing and aaaah-ing’.

Here on the blog is where we’ll show you the down and dirty side of putting together a sustainable reuse interior project. We’ve got several coming blog posts that feature a behind-the-scenes (BTS) look at the highlights in the project, like our scrap wood mid-century bench, the fabric wall art, the ‘floating’ heart art, and my favorite, the deconstructed piano parts art piece (just thinking about it makes me oooh and aaah inside!).

Until we get all of those posts up, here’s a few of our BTS pics (in no particular oder) from the Oscar Fredrik redesign project.  Enjoy the picture parade!
