Kristi from My Weekly Habit has been working on turning her guest bedroom into an office space. She’s been pulling pieces of furniture in from other rooms of the house, like this small white shelf that had been down in the basement.
When Rachel was finishing her attic, she had a dilemma: what to do with the odd space adjacent to her narrow attic stairwell? She decided that a set of shelves would create visual interest while maintaining the open feeling the small space needed, and blogged about the project at Maison de Pax.
“I’ve waiting to get my hands on industrial wooden spool for a while and I never thought I was going to find one, says Loren at Pandora’s Craft Box. “Until one day on my way to get my hubby at work and a saw it!”
Over at McCall Manor, Holly spotted this handsome bookcase on–you guessed it–the side of the road! Believe it or not, all that glass was completely intact!
Meet Holly, from McCall Manor, who asks a question many of us are probably familiar with: “You know all of those times when you scour the internet looking for a piece of furniture that has the EXACT dimensions that you need for a space and when you can’t find it online you look in your garage and realize that a piece you had been using to hold dirty garden shoes is actually perfect?”
“Do you know how THRILLING it is to find something decent in or around a dumpster?” asks Karen at Redoux Interiors. She found this black bookshelf in a dumpster. It was actually pretty good looking, but didn’t have any shelves.
At Our House, Now a Home, Emily shares a terrific rescue project. “I got this spool as a freebie when I was picking up some chairs
from a craigslist post,” she explains. “It was going to be thrown out” Emily had a feeling that she could turn it into something amazing, so she brought it home and did just that!
Over at Meatloaf and Melodrama, Dee had two laminate shelves on either side of her television that were functioning fine as they were. Dee’s one big objection to them was that due to the sheen and color of the laminate, they were dust magnets! Despite frequent dusting, they always looked like they needed to be dusted again!
