Creatives of all types gathered at Build It Green! NYC in Gowanus on a rainy May 19. Despite the gray weather, designers, builders, and DIYers took discarded chairs and created something new at the MAKESHIFT DIY Chair Workshop. Leading the way were Natalie Chanin, creator of design company Alabama Chanin and Amy Devers of A&E’s “Fix This Yard”. Chairs created during this workshop are now available in a silent auction on Krrb. All proceeds go to Build It Green! NYC, New York City’s only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials.
