Sara, A.K.A "Mrs. Major Hoff" blogs at Major Hoff Takes a Wife. She tells us, " My friend just happened to find this fabulous chippy painted barn wood when she was out strolling through a pasture. Okay, so she is a veterinarian, and maybe is out in pastures more than the rest of us--but holy smokes! What a score!"
Over at Restoration Redoux, Shanna's friend gave her a few pieces of furniture that the didn't want anymore, including this dresser. "This was the first piece I've completed that didn’t have any hardware, so since the fronts were so plain to begin with, I decided to focus on the color," Shanna explains.
Over at Nalle's House, Anu asks, "A folding chair is great for small spaces, parties and as additional seating, but what do you do with it while it's not in use? I decided to make my vintage folding chair serve double duty as seating and as a command center in my front entry."
Once up on time, after Dena of Hearts & Sharts had been visiting a friend, her friend asked, “Hey, do you want this crappy table?” Dena hesitated, then decided the sturdy but stained table might be perfect for turning into an upholstered ottoman someday, so took it home to sit in her garage.
A friend of Gail's found this kid-sized armoire in a pile of furniture on the side of the road. Knowing that Gail (of My Repurposed Life) is a genius at refabbing old furniture, the friend brought the whole pile to her. I'm pretty amazed by what she did with the armoire.
I've seen some pretty dramatic rescues in my day. But this chair that Heather of The Heathered Nest picked up....well, let's just say this does beat all. Even I would have driven right past this hot mess!
The ceiling fan in Emily's living room was less than lovely--she pretty much declared it hideous and was ready to toss the thing. However, last summer the ceiling fans in her house were in constant use, so she felt like getting rid of it wasn't an option. After learning that she could switch out the light portion of the fan, Emily decided to update the fan herself, and she shares the project at My So-Called DIY Blog.
