While digging around Flickr for these photos I came across the following from Flickr user stereolab. Here's the description of the photo below: "we made the floors in polished concrete, but a big crack appeared between the dining area and the lounge room. my idea was to make a bigger opening, and plant some dracenas, and cover the dirt with local river rocks." FREAKING BRILLIANT!!!

Makes me want a couple of Tulip side tables. I'll never find them in a thrift store though. Great finds Kim and great rooms all you Flickr people. I'm so jealous.

Love the great idea with the crack... making lemonade from lemons!

I love Saarinen tables but they are so ubiquitous. That river rock room divider though: unique and rocking!

That's my favorite table of all time. Thanks for this post. Can't wait to check out all these various flickr sites.

Don't they get a lot of bugs that come through the dirt and rocks though? It's a cool idea but I do not handle bugs well.
