No Mischief Monday

Cardboard - not just for boxes anymore. The small stylish table shown is made out of this abundant, but underutilized resource. Plain old cardboard can be used to make tables, chairs, sofas, bookshelves and much more for next to nothing.

Are you handy? Can you handle an X-Acto knife without getting hurt? Interested in the ultimate upcycling project? Try building your own cardboard furniture. A do it yourself web site shows the steps to build the table in the picture.

French builders of cardboard furniture are at the leading edge of design, and are creating unique and whimsical pieces. Find some of their amazing cardboard furniture/art here.
