Chair Rescued Once, Then Again

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... DIY Beautify chair after

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait to Paint

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.

Saved Stump Begins New Life as a Table

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."

An Heirloom Cedar Chest Comes to Life

Deb from Lake Girl Paints says that this chest has been in her friends' family for years.  "Grandma Pat Hemje received this Lane Cedar Chest when she was 16. Now it has a home with her son's family."  Even though the chest was worn down, they planned to keep it as an heirloom and asked Deb for some help.

Old Pallets + Old Belts = Something Special

Over at Our Pinteresting Family, Meghan shares another great use for pallet wood.  "We had a few pallets left in the garage from last summer. I mentioned to Rob that it may be time to find them a new home or put them on Free-cycle."  Rob, however, had a better idea, that included upcycling the pallets and some old belts from Meghan's closet.

Beachy Art From VHS Storage

Over at Camelot Art Creations, Desiree says, "I have had this old VHS wooden crate set aside for a DIY project for some time now."  After a family trip to the beach, she realized that the crate could become a display case for the seashells they'd collected. Camelot Art Creations shell display before
