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.
Jenna blogs at 24 Cottonwood Lane. She's been working on a makeover of her master bedroom, and sticking to her budget has resulted in several impressive rescues. Just take a look at what she did with her old lamps.
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.
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.
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.
Kelly blogs over at Joy and Gladness of Heart. There, she shows us this lovely piece of raw wood that she'd had sitting around. She knew she wanted to put it somewhere in her house, but had a hard time figuring out exactly what to do with it.
