Ariele Alasko

Ariele Alasko specializes in transforming salvaged flooring into ultra-lovely and functional household objects such as tables and cheese boards. Her knack for creating precise geometric patterns in her rustic pieces is astounding.

With her passion of building reclaimed furniture for small Brooklyn apartments and restaurants, she's turned her own space (located in Bed Stuy) into one massive signature creation - check out photos on her website here. Her studio home tops my favorites in DIY makeovers for sure!

Also, I am totally coveting this window seat she created:

Dang, I love a good chevron.
