Two Swissvale men are winners in the Post-Gazette and Construction Junction's second annual Reuse Inspiration Contest.
Todd Meyer, an architect, won for home renovation projects by redesigning a plain banquet room into a rustic, vintage eyecatcher for E² restaurant in Highland Park.
Wayne Treichel Jr. won for original artwork. He designed a Tiffany-style lampshade from pieces of broken glass he found by the Monongahela River and used pieces found at Construction Junction for the base.
Both had to use the recycled and surplus building materials sold at Construction Junction, a non-profit retailer in Point Breeze.
