Allie blogs at This Yellow House, where she had a fan that she wasn't exactly a fan of. "I eventually want to replace the fan with a pretty chandelier," Allie shares, "but since I don't have the funds for a new light fixture at the moment, I decided to update the fan we have."
Over at Posed Perfection, Nici found this rust-covered metal cart at a garage sale. It looks like the type of thing that my elementary school teacher would have used to roll the film projector into the classroom. Remember those days?
Over at Daisy Mae Belle, Melissa shares a project that was the brainchild of her creative eldest daughter, Daisy. "She was thrilled to pieces when she found this old door at a yard sale," Melissa says. "She knew that it would be perfect for her room." The door was similar to the one pictured, below.
Marcy blogs at Day2Day Supermom. When she spotted a lettuce garden made from gutters on Pinterest, Marcy immediately thought of the old gutters lying out behind her husband's shop. Instead of lettuce, though, Marcy was craving strawberries!
Over at Lemon Tree Dwelling, Cathy shares that spring took it's own sweet time to come to her neck of the woods. Anxious for some spring color in her home, she decided to make some of her own, starting with a few branches collected from her yard.
At Shabby Love, Melissa says, "I'm pretty much obsessed with yardsticks and have been collecting and hoarding them for over a year to start using them on projects." So when a friend passed along this cute little table, Melissa knew exactly what she was going to do to it.
Lately it seems like we've enjoyed seeing quite a few makeovers here at Roadkill Rescue that started with Craigslist. This one from Kristen at A Thrifter in Disguise came from a CL ad in the free section that read, "Save this table from going into the dumpster."
The beachy summertime display that Kathy of Petticoat Junktion created from reclaimed would has very authentic beginnings. "A few years ago when we lived in Florida I drove up and down neighborhood streets every morning collecting discarded wood fencing from curbside," Kathy explains.
At House by Hoff, April had a blank wall in her dining area that needed a little something. "I considered doing some pallet art. I considered hanging some plates," she says. "Then, in a moment of sheer genius, I considered doing both."
At This, That, & Life, Anneke sent her husband out to pickup a couch from Craigslist. "When my hubby went to go pick it up, the guy selling the couch said, 'Hey, do you want this dresser and chair? I’m just going to take it to the dump if not.' Um, YES please!!!" Anneka laughs.
Mandy of We Three Mothers writes, "About a month ago, Cooper was having a lot of fun playing restaurant and grocery store owner in the play room with our Melissa and Doug food items and Kiwi Crate grocery apron. I've been wanting a little kitchen for Lily and Cooper for a while, but am not a fan of the plastic ones they sell, and the wooden ones everywhere are pretty pricey. Alas! Cooper and I decided to turn this little table into an oven!"
