Space age cool, or just another piece of unnecessary plastic? What do you think of this futuristic recycling center?
Over at Re-nest, we're continuing our Creative Reuse series with a retro-themed craft from reader Victoria. The reuse theme continues with a coffee table made from a washing machine tub and kitchen tiles made from cork.

Links after the jump.

To spare you the trouble of scrolling: here's a link to the Ovetto Differenziato. Hot or not?
