"One of the perks of being in a construction-related business is that you can claim any discards from job-sites that might be re-purposed," Marty tells us at Marty's Musings.

When Manda and her Mom refinished this gorgeous old bed frame, they ran into a little glitch: modern day mattresses are a little bigger than the ones this bed was made for.

Manda was left with some aged wood and shared the way she repurposed some of it at Lost in the Found.
