Something else

Resurrection Furniture and Found Objects Gallery
Number 10 Alabama Street in New Manila, Quezon City (see the previous two posts) is the home of Resurrection Furniture and Found Objects Gallery. They sell a few original vintage pieces, like the vanity and ornate mirror, but their strength lies in giving new life to what other people call junk. The chest of drawers—which I absolutely adore—is made of salvaged wooden planks; notice the drawer pulls that come from a variety of pieces so each is unique. The lamp on the floor in the foreground is made of the narrow side of old CPU towers, and the silver flapper lampshade of the piece on the chest is made of soda can tabs. The gallery sometimes has guest artists to exhibit in the house (which really is a house, by the way); the crochet sculpture is by Aze Ong and is part of her "Liwanag" (light) touring exhibit.

Thanks for posting about Resurrection Furniture and 10a Alabama! Credit for our blue bird on the gate and the teapot on the cement goes to Robert Alejandro (of Papemelroti). The shoe planters were made by Jetro Rafael (of Van Gogh is Bipolor), while the beer bottle chandelier is from Nathan Apilado. These talented artists all help make 10a Alabama a really vibrant place. Thanks again, Hilda!

Thank you for the names of the artists, Momok. I've edited all the posts already to credit them.

No need to thank me at all. I enjoyed the visit and love the two little treasures I bought. I also think that what everyone there is doing is commendable and the results are just delightful!
