Sara, who blogs at Thrifty Treasures, has quite an assortment of salvaged wood and furniture in her garage. After using the doors from some old cabinets for another project, she realized the cabinet boxes themselves were really sturdy. When she spotted an old crib in the corner, inspiration struck.
“This old bench was rescued from the back of my mom’s flower garden right before it completely slipped away into the forest never to be seen again!” says Amy at Joyful Daisy. “I am truly amazed what an afternoon with spray paint can do.”
Kristin blogs at Yellow Bliss Road. When she saw this piano bench on its way to the curb, she couldn’t stand to let it go! Kristin knew it had potential.
Over at Little House of Four, Katie wanted to build her own workbench for the garage. Since her husband comes across used wood pallets often in his work, pallets seemed to be the quickest and cheapest option for building the bench.
Shauna from Sartori Design for Living originally found this bench in an old shed at her parents’ home. She decided to give it new life as part of a container garden in her own yard.
Over at My Love 2 Create, Mindi has been sharing projects from the laundry room redo she helped her sister with. Since Sis was on a tight budget, most of the projects they worked on had to involve free or low-cost materials. This bench for the mudroom section of the laundry area repurposed not one, but two items!
“Last Spring I got a call from a friend to alert me that there was a headboard out to the garbage on her street,” tells Gail at My Repurposed Life. “I borrowed a truck and hurried right over to scoop it up.”
