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.
After receiving these retro side tables as a gift from her mom, Bonnie at Revolutionaries got to work! She used some elbow grease and milk paint to transform the tables into a drool-worthy duo.
“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.
Stacy and Eric blog at Anastasia Vintage (click over to read the very cool story behind their blog name). A Craigslist curb alert led them to this chair….which had definitely seen better days.
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.
