what are some cost cutting ideas for new restaurants opening that are also eco friendly.
1. used chairs.
used chairs. seriously. chairs can be handpainted to look completely different.
see our site
click on hand painted chairs.
mostly we paint new chairs from gar products but now and then we come across used chairs. it's always astonished me that people are so quick to throw out chairs
even 50% new chairs...
2.paint a bar. rather than buy a new bar or counter. if it's wood it can be primed and painted.
3.cover a wall in used doors. cabinet shops throw out doors that they remove when refacing
4 create a collection of like minded items from thrift stores or yard sales... like jigsaw puzzles, sewing patterns, globes,picture frames all painted ONE color with nothing in them, a series of travel book covers, maps, vintage post cards, or candleholders all painted brilliant metallic colors...I could go on
5.for an internet cafe a solid wall of web, computer and phone trash. cables, phone chargers, old obsolete phones, non operational computers as a solid piece of art. called a conversation piece
we have many many more ideas. we don't want to internet market, sell lists, hound strangers, we want to work and not the econami get in the way.
