” I found this piece on the roadside and had a plan for it the second I saw it,” says Marta on her blog, Marta on a Mission. Part of a bed set, she was pretty sure the size and shape of the foot board gave it great potential as a shelf.
Have you ever picked up a hitchhiker? Heather from The Heathered Nest not only picked up a hitchhiker, she took it home and gave it a makeover! The hitchhiker just happened to be a twin bed frame that she spotted on the side of the road.
At My Repurposed Life, Gail has been finding new ways to use the pieces of an old bunkbed. After using part of the headboard and footboard for one project, she had a piece of the footboard leftover.
Laura of Finding Home has quite the story about this rescue. While vacationing, she and her family were on a walk together. Halfway through the walk, Laura spotted a footboard with gorgeous curves in a trash bin. Much to her family’s embarrassment, she pulled the footboard out and carried it with her…along with one of the children and the family dog that got tired of walking! At home after vacation, she turned that footboard into a towel rack.
