Gail of My Repurposed Life had an old twin headboard and footboard (similar to the ones pictured below) that had been sitting in her storage shed for a few years.  When she was able to get a bunch of free lumber but didn’t have room to store it, she decided  to use that lumber up right away and free some storage space by using the headboard and footboard, too!

At Namely Originals, Emily says that her mom was on the way to pick up some mulch when she spotted this crate on the side of the road.  Since Mom is a big fan of Roadkill Rescue (yay!) she couldn’t help but stop in the middle of the road to rescue it.

Melissa blogs at Toad Turned Prince.  She tells us, “I was driving down the street and happened to glance over and see this sad sad coffee table sitting next to a dumpster. I did a U-turn in the middle of the street and headed that way. When I got there, I could see that it had good bones, but just needed some TLC.”
