Urban Acres Farmstead Installation






This project was making and installing reclaimed shelving and a large table top, and assisting in counter-front walls made out of pallet wood. It was done for Urban Acres, which is a co-op in Oak Cliff, TX (part of Dallas) that supports local, organic farmers by selling their produce via share pick up and in their store. They have shares that are picked up twice a month that contain seasonal fruits and veggies that are all organic and as local as possible. This project was for their new store front that has just recently opened. Two large wall units of reclaimed, adjustable shelving went up framing out two of the windows, and a smaller unit went up in another corner of the store. In the middle is a 12 foot long table that is used to showcase the produce being sold. All of the wood used was reclaimed pine that came from houses through out Dallas… Talk about everything being local.

About thegrain.design

we're passionate about design and the opportunity it presents to express what inspires us. blending aesthetics to create something entirely new allows for a unique and personal look. we seek to fashion new, using the old. the character that comes from history can't be replicated; similar to a pair of jeans that is distressed over time by the owner. that's why we choose to use reclaimed materials. we also believe in reusing and repurposing furniture, using natural finishes, and other recycled materials to reduce our carbon footprint.
