I hesitate to call what this Cincinnati couple do with furniture "upcycling" because it's so much more than that.

As they say in their etsy profile, Ginger and Matt Summers "create warm yet modern environments by blending styles such as mid-century modern, vintage industrial and hollywood regency."

Take that dresser, for instance – after stripping and painting the base of the cabinet, the couple cut apart old shutters and applied them to the drawer fronts, piece by piece, to create that breathtaking herringbone pattern. And that floor lamp? It's made from an old surveyor's tripod and a vintage lamp shade! Love it!
