Second Line Frames

Second Line Frames are constructed from salvaged wood siding after Hurricane Katrina and portion of each sales goes to assist the rehabilitation of affected neighborhoods. A great background behind the name:

The Second Line is a timeless New Orleans tradition – the colorful parade that follows a funeral procession to turn tragedy into a celebration of rebirth.

these are great. i love the deconstructed quality, but they don't look too beachy to have in my own place.

Okay, *totally* awesome idea, but hello lead paint. The second frame pictured has the tell-tale "alligatoring" -- the square chips flaking off that indicate the paint is leaded and it's crazy scary how potent lead is as an environmental poison. It take so little lead dust to contaminate an entire apartment or house. Still, brilliant idea, but buyers should just be aware of the potential hazards.
