Kathy from The Salvaged Boutique rescued a metal cart from the garbage pile at work. The fact that it was metal made it a true score, despite its n-a-s-t-y condition. We are talking seriously FILTHY and rusty! However, Kathy performed a miraculous transformation on the cart, taking it from landfill material to a vision in gold and white!
Jennifer from Contemporary Harbor was inspired to turn an industrial spool found by a dumpster into an accent table similar to one she’s been pining over from Ballard for awhile. It only took her some stain and rope to create this awesome knock-off for a small fraction of the price.
As a part of her mudroom remodel, Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust built a small bench where her kids could sit and put their shoes on. Being the resourceful gal that she is, Kristen used some old picnic table boards she found in a dumpster for the build. I love Kristen’s criss-cross design and the fact that she built this bench for FREE by using the reclaimed wood! You go, Girl!
Larissa from The House on Harrison wanted to get a special gift for her niece’s first birthday. She thought a floor desk from Pottery Barn Kids was super cute but most definitely not worth the expensive, especially when you have a cabinet door from a trash heap on hand! With a few leftover project boards and some paint, Larissa turned the old door into a chalkboard version of the desk for only $10. Not only is it too cute for words but also coordinates with her niece’s room!
