Not long ago, I featured a china cabinet makeover from High Style Restyle. Well, that was only one of several projects that Amy and her dad have been making from pieces of the china cabinet he found on the roadside. Today, I'm sharing another one: their new apothecary-style cabinet.
When she was putting the finishing touches on her dining room makeover, Jen had to admit it--her dining table just didn't go with the rest of the room. But who has money for new furniture when you've just finished a home improvement project? Like most of us, Jen did not, so she had to get creative with what she had, and she blogged about the process over at Noting Grace.
"My Step-Dad found this dresser at the side of the road on garbage day," confesses Shelly at 100 Things 2 Do. She was in desperate need of a place to corral miscellaneous winter gear, like hats and gloves, and decided that the old dresser could serve a new purpose.
I've featured quite a few projects here at Roadkill Rescue that involve cribs being turned into benches. This one by Sara of Thrifty Treasures, however, takes this concept to a whole new level. She transformed crib parts into a settee with some serious style credentials.
This old table was rescued by Sarah when she found it sitting on the roadside in front of her apartment complex. It didn't look too promising, but she took it home anyway. Check out the makeover she gave it at Sarah M. Dorsey Designs.
"I found this dresser sitting on the curb on garbage day when I was out walking, my dog, Buddy," Erin explains at DIY Passion. "Hilarity ensued and it did eventually end up in my car and in our sunroom, where it sat, musty and yucky for months until I started to come up with a whole space vision."
While Jenny from Paint & Pillows was grateful for all of the baby gear friends and family passed along to her when she announced her pregnancy, she does have one question for the world at large: "Why can’t baby stuff actually go with the decor of the home?" She decided that there was no reason she couldn't restyle some of the larger pieces of equipment--like this baby swing--so they would coordinate with the spaces where they'd be sitting out, ready to use.
Kristi of My Weekly Habit tells us, "I had a sturdy but dated nightstand that was given to me by my mother-in-law as part of a set for our spare bedroom. When I changed our spare bedroom over to an office, I had some homeless furniture." Instead of kicking it to the curb, Kristi decided to give it a makeover.
This flowery dresser has been in Jess's family for years. It made the rounds through various rooms in her parent's home, ending up in the laundry room. "When my parents went to remodel their laundry room, the flower-covered dresser was going to be kicked to the curb if I didn't save it," Jess explains at A Smith of All Trades.
Needing more counter surface in her kitchen, Meg of Oliver & Rust did some online window shopping for a small island or kitchen cart. She fell in love with one at William-Sonoma, but the pricetag was way out of reach. "After not getting or finding what I want, I was huffing in the garage and saw my paint cart--formerly the little island in our first home," Meg says. "The top was covered with paint but the size was perfect."
