Cute Corner Bench from a Crib

"On one of our pickin’ trips we garbage picked two sides of a crib," tells Karen at The Salvaged Boutique. She thinks that at one time, the crib must have looked a lot like the crib pictured below, but at the time she found it, everything but those two sides were too broken to be salvaged.

Spider Plates for Halloween

Over at Meatloaf and Melodrama, Dee tells us, "I have a set of white plates that I got a few years ago. It's one of those sets that you buy in a huge box, and it has every type of plate in in, including little saucers, which I've never used." When she spotted some inexpensive spider window clings, Dee thought of her unused plates and had a lightbulb moment.

From Paint Cart to Sophisticated Kitchen Island

Needing more counter surface in her kitchen, Meg of Oliver & Rust did some online window shopping for a small island or kitchen cart. She fell in love with one at William-Sonoma, but the pricetag was way out of reach. "After not getting or finding what I want, I was huffing in the garage and saw my paint cart--formerly the little island in our first home," Meg says. "The top was covered with paint but the size was perfect."
