Got a pile of outdated computer parts lying around? You might never have imagined it, but there's the possibility of salvaging those motherboards, drives and other miscellaneous parts and using them to create some unique furnishings (if not 110% geeky in design, but probably better than this "hillbilly" toothbrush holder). BRC Designs' The Binary Collection table is composed completely of outdated electronics and computers...


Inspired by pallets of obsolete computers and electronics that were collecting dust in a local warehouse. The table structure is made from the metal from computer towers that are riveted together and bent to the proper form. The surface is completely covered with a collage of motherboards, computer chips, led screens and hard drive disks held in place by sheet metal screws. The glass from the table was salvaged from an abandoned warehouse. -from BRC Designs The Binary Collection low table press release.

This is basically a more raw version of a similar table we like a bit better, since the parts aren't exposed and arguably has a much more impressive finish with its LED glowing interior.

This look too geeky-tech for you? Admittedly, although we admire reuse/recycling, we're not too keen about having a table look like an extra from a Transformers movie in our living room (but to each their own). So here are a few other ideas for recycling and reusing old computer parts:
