At her blog, Balancing Home, Megan shares, “The very first thing I said when we put an offer in on our house was, that porch needs a makeover.” One reason the porch needed a makeover was the absence of visible address numbers.
I’ve always had a slight obsession with paint sticks, so when I inherited a big box of them, I was delighted! One of my first projects? A new address sign for my front porch. I shared the project at Infarrantly Creative.
“During what we folks around here call ‘Parma Junk Days’, my mom and I were out picking through the piles on the curbs when we spotted this nice desk,” says Kammy of Kammy’s Korner. It was solid wood and very heavy, but the pair managed to load it up and take it home.
When KariAnne of Thistlewood Farm found a whole bunch of yardsticks at a thrift store, she brought them home and made a list of all the ways she might use them. First project on her list was making this fun yardstick stool.
Jennifer, who blogs at City Farmhouse, was out on her morning jog when she spotted these cane chairs in a curbside garbage pile. She’d been eyeing similar chairs online and at Home Goods, so she was thrilled to rescue them from the trash. She took them home for a makeover.
