Leftover lottery tickets turned into stunning living room art

Includes video report

More people than ever are trying to rescue, recycle and reinvent, especially on Earth Day.

This extreme example uses all those unlucky lottery scratch-off tickets to turn them into a recycled masterpiece.

Artists Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was have created an entire dining room out of 40,000 used lottery tickets, using them to make up the wall panels, furniture and even the place settings.

All the furniture and décor total a whopping $70,000 in lottery ticket sales.

The installation, which was created to celebrate the launch of Galerie magazine, is called "Dream Home." It's located at "The Art of Interiors" exhibit in a townhouse on the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan and is open to the public through May 10.

        My first thought is how many are "missed" winners that were never cashed. Hopefully, none are, but even high budget players who scratch instants on Youtube miss winners.

        Anyways, imagine a room covered in Texas and Colorado $50 tickets. That would cost a fortune!

              It looks beautiful. Dream House? Nah... more like Losers Emporium. Most individual Americans do not have a net income of $70,000.00. $70,000.00 of losing {worthless} tickets and furniture in one room..  Scared

                          I like the earlier 3D sculptural ones much more. The recent ones are pretty though.
