A friend of mine wanted to open a resto-bar with an antique/vintage theme. As much as possible, he wants most of his furniture and decors to come from recycled materials.

We spent most of our time jumping from one junk shop to another. Although we have already purchased a lot of items, there are still a couple more missing. He wanted tabletops and chairs that would fit his theme.

While this may not be easy, the results are definitely worth all your time and effort.

In every junk shop, the most commonly disregarded item is the steel bath tub. Thank goodness for the internet, we knew what to do. We found these discarded steel bath tubs can be converted into a chair. Let me tell you, it saved us a lot of bucks!
