Newlywed Ashley of With a Sparklex had some simple glass vases that were leftover from her wedding decor. While she had already incorporated some of them into her home decor, she knew there was a limit to how many clear, glass vases she could use!
Marcy blogs at Day 2 Day Supermom. Admittedly, she has a "thing" for Mason jars. So when she saw an outdoor chandelier on Pinterest made from canning jars, she knew she had to make one of her own. After all, Marcy had plenty of empty Mason jars, and it wasn't hard to scavenge a nice looking piece of wood from her husband's project pile.
April from House By Hoff is back to share another rescue with us. "Remember when I found a bunch of old windows on the side of the road and said that I had a lot of different ideas for them?" she asks. "I wasn't lying. This will make my third (and probably final) old window project!"
I have a rescue to share with you today that is pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. It involves over 29 cans of partially used paint in a wide variety of colors, and comes to us from Jennifer at West Street Story.
At her blog, While They Snooze, Sarah has been working on transforming her daughter's bedroom from baby to big-girl style. One of the problems that needed addressing was the lack of a nightstand. "And, lucky for me... the neighbors were movin' on out and left this beauty at the curb. Score! Quite scratched but the perfect size," Sarah exclaims.
Cindy blogs over at DIY Beautify. She's got a double rescue to tell us about today. One that started with Cindy dumpster diving for some chairs. She says, "They were GROSS. Bad paint job with bad paint. Lots of drips and globs. And sticky. And the seat cushions? Eeeek!" After some TLC, Cindy got them to look like this...
Over at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Kristin tells us, "I had some really nice wooden wine boxes that a local winery gave to me awhile back so I decided to transform one of them into a serving tray."
Consie blogs at Atop Serenity Hill. She recently make a chalkboard for her home, and realized that she needed an easy way to keep chalk nearby. No need to buy anything for this, because Consie used materials that she already had on hand.
99% of the time here at Roadkill Rescue, the featured projects involve a fresh coat of paint to make them look good again. And I'm all for that. But I can definitely say that there are times when it's good to think before you paint, like in the case of this dining table that was picked up off the side of the road by Dee of My Painted Stuff.
Julie has been working on a big redecorating project and blogging about it at Redhead Can Decorate. She's giving her family room the look of a mountain lodge, and decided that she needed an ultra rustic accent table. It wasn't hard to find the materials for this one, Julie explains, "We had to cut down a dead elm tree in our yard due to safety concerns."
At her blog Simply Country Life, Adina tells us that this piece of wood was headed to the garbage because the carvings that had once been on it had broken or fallen off. Even with those carvings missing, she loved the shape of the piece, so Adina saved it from the burn pile.
