How-to Upcycle your Dryer Drum

A common question the EWcrew (especially the weekenders) gets asked is, “What are we working on?” Our customers have us pegged as project do-ers and to be honest, it’s hard to work at Earthwise and not be inspired to have a few projects going on! If you stop by either store on the weekend, that’s when you see most of these projects happening.

Recently, the Seattle store came into possession of a metal washer drum. While everybody wanted to scrap it, store manager Lacy had a better idea.  Seattle just expanded the pedestal sink and bathroom display room to include mirrors and more sinks and the room was lacking a little pizzazz. So she pitched the idea to the crew of using the metal washer drum as a lamp shade and building a light fixture for inside it.

While Matt dismantled the non-working washer for the drum, Diana wired up a 4-light fixture (learn how to do your own simple rewiring in May – Seattle & Tacoma). From there the assembly was quick and easy and added just the right touch to the space!

Remember about a month ago when you came to #EWSalvage in Seattle and happened upon a HUGE crew shooting something but we couldn’t tell you more than it was just a commercial? Or maybe your were perusing the Facebook Page or Instagram and caught wind of something happening at the store and wondered what the heck that was?

Well, we are officially able to tell you! It’s really exciting and was very hush-hush for the last few weeks, but Microsoft Surface & Paypal HERE are introducing a NEW point-of-sale system specifically for small businesses and their owners, always on the go and out-and-about.

Take a Virtual Tour of Earthwise’s Tacoma Store!

Here is just a tiny sample of what you can expect to see when visiting this location, however, please remember it is always our advice to come in, chat with us, experience the salvage and feel the history!
