When some people tear down a building or get rid of some old furniture, they might think, "This stuff is going in the trash." But things work differently for artist and designer Doug Regen of Nashville. Doug finds things that have been torn down or discarded and thinks, "How can I give this a second life?" As Rob Wilds found out, the new lives Doug comes up with result in beautiful and functional designs.
