This bulletin board shows just how skilled the ladies over at Namely Original are at bringing new life to old, discarded items. Julia had been looking for a new cork board, but her mom was not too excited about forking over the money. Therefore, she found a more budget-friendly option in this curbside find.

After six years, Karen from Desert Chica Ramblings still found her master bedroom lacking a headboard. Her husband came up with a solution using a couple of cabinet doors he’d rescued before they ended up in the dumpster.
Amidst a big project, Faye from MacGIRLver needed a little “instant gratification” and decided to spruce up a chair she originally had no intention of keeping. Plain. Brown. Nothing to get too excited about.
Faye from MacGIRLver got this desk several years ago from her husband’s cousin. It had been acting as a TV stand in her rec room until Faye decided it couldn’t hide from her paint brush any longer and pulled the desk out for a makeover.

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented chose this beauty for her very first reupholstering project. She found it for FREE off Craigslist and instantly saw the potential in its tiny little ad photo. Her husband, on the other hand, was of course shaking his head and questioning how anything beautiful could ever come of the eyesore.
Shanna from Restoration Redoux got this big, ugly brown dresser that was covered in melted wax and other unknown substances for only five dollars off of Craigslist. Yes, five buckaroos! After cleaning and airing it out, it was time for Shanna to work her magic!
Don't you just love it when you come up with a crafty project that doesn't cost a thing? Just A Girl's Chris made this pinecone wreath with things she gathered outside and already had inside. No shopping required!

Considering many charities will actually drive to your house to pick up items, it is a wonder people still throw away perfectly good pieces of furniture and decorative items.
