We all know that Goodwill is cheap, but this find from Lisa at Recaptured Charm takes the cake! I can only imagine her amazement when she saw the 99 cent price tag on this wood coffee table. Yep, 99 cents!
Jenna from SAS Interiors had a pair of laminate bookshelves that she purchased from Wal-mart a couple of years ago. The shelves were bowing, which is kind of a problem for a bookshelf, and the dark wood tone was blending right in with Jenna’s newly-painted navy walls.
Tania from TC’s Designs had this old blue dresser without drawers hanging around in her basement for years. She offered to fix it up for a few friends, but no one saw the potential for beauty in the castoff piece of furniture.
Karen from Redoux pulled this mirror from an apartment dumpster. Obviously the broken mirror was to blame for landing this piece in the trash but the poor frame sure didn’t need to take the fall with it!
Tired of having just a metal bed frame pushed up against the wall in her master bedroom, Kristen from My Covered Bridge headed to her local reuse store to find something to turn into a headboard. That something ended up being an old door.
Yesterday I shared a cardboard box decorated with rolled magazine pages. While we are on the topic of repurposing cardboard boxes for storage, here’s another idea for beautifying a box to make it just as pretty as it is functional.

Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. was tired of staring at a big blank wall and started to brainstorm ideas for inexpensive wall décor. Thoughts of hula hoops, garden hoses, and paint chips all swirled through her brain before a friend came up with the perfect solution – baskets!
You may remember the sweater pillows I recently made for a friend’s home. With colder weather in the future, it got me thinking about other fun sweater upcycling projects. Alicia from Thrifty and Chic wowed me with this fun idea for repurposing an old sweater.
