A Broken Chair Gets a Little Vanity Treatment

At Thrifty Treasures, Sara has had this broken, curbside find chair sitting in her basement for well over a month.  Despite the broken back, it was sturdy, and she loved the legs.  Sara tells us, that the inspiration for this rescue struck, "As I was browsing some of the link parties the other day, I saw a vanity seat that looked just like a chair with its back cut off."

That 70’s Door Becomes His & Hers Wall Art

I guess today is officially Rescue a Cabinet Door Day here at Roadkill Rescue!  Our second cabinet rescue (see the first here) comes to us from Elisha of Pneumatic Addict.  Her husband works in the construction business, and sometimes when he's working remodels, he gets to bring home a few leftovers.  That's how this dated cabinet door ended up at Elisha's house.

Sarah from Pretty Providence tells us, "I was inspired to do this when the cheap full-length mirror that my husband bought back in his bachelor days literally fell apart."  The mirror itself wasn't broken, so she decided to try to build a newer, sturdier frame.  (The old mirror was similar to the one pictured, below.)
