At Our Southern Home, Christy had an old set of antique iron furniture she’d purchased fifteen years ago from an ad in the newspaper. “These chairs have been sitting in the loft of our barn for over ten years!” Christy confessed.
Sara from Thrifty Treasures found this sad, ugly, old ottoman. But she has a good imagination, so knowing this ottoman had a solid, sturdy frame, she could see the possibilities.
Debi presented this crazy cute piece of furniture on her blog, Debi’s Design Diary. It’s a mushroom ottoman, made from a stump pulled from her wood pile!
Sara from Thrifty Treasures loves tufted ottomans. She was thrilled when she saw another blogger use an old coffee table to make one, because Sara realized she already had just the right table for an ottoman transformation downstairs in her own basement.
Occasionally, seasoned Roadkill Rescuers encounter the phenomenon of extra drawers. In Beth’s case, she found a dresser on the side of the road that was in horrible shape except the drawers, which were completely fine. She shares her idea for rescuing drawers over at her blog, Pickles In My Tea & In My Soup.
“I collect and store things I know can be made into something…someday,” confesses Sara at Thrifty Treasures. “I had some legs I cut from a chair and an old cutting board that I decided to put together to make something new.”
At Diary of a Crafty Lady, Lindsay tells us, “I found a few old drawers on the side of the road during trash day and couldn’t pass them up! I turned one into a wall shelf for my
daughter, and with another one I made this storage ottoman!”
