Over at Pennies ‘n Grace, Molly tells us, “When we moved into our home last August we made plans to make our huge loft into a game room/office space.” In need of some inexpensive furniture, she decided to experiment with turning pallets (like the one pictured below) into couches.
I’ve featured quite a few projects here at Roadkill Rescue that involve cribs being turned into benches. This one by Sara of Thrifty Treasures, however, takes this concept to a whole new level. She transformed crib parts into a settee with some serious style credentials.
Over at One Krieger Chick, Ariean tells us, “Years ago, my dad came across this cast iron bathtub in excellent condition and since he knows I kinda like old stuff, he asked if I would like it.” Of course she said yes, but it took her a few years to figure out how she’d use it.
I love a dramatic rescue, don’t you? Well, then, you are going to love seeing what happened after Kayla from Confessions of a DIYaholic found this sofa on the side of the road.
At Redoux Interiors, Karen shares an incredible furniture creation. She made this couch almost entirely from junky finds: a headboard, garage door panels, and pieces from a twin bed. You’ve got to see it to believe it!
“After many years of use in three different households, this sectional sat in our basement, unused,” says Ahna of Easier Than I Thought. She had considered getting rid of it, but had a feeling she should keep it.
What I’m about to share with you wasn’t a roadkill rescue: it was a roadkill intervention. It’s the story of a sectional sofa that could have been tossed to the curb, but thanks to the brave efforts of it’s owners, it got a second chance. Christy from Confessions of a Serial DIYer tells us all about it.
Emily and her mom like to redo unwanted furniture in their spare time, and they blog about it at Namely Original. This second hand sofa set was in good enough condition to use in their own living room, but they weren’t loving the blonde wood.
