My Latest Project

My neighbor threw out this cute table and I stole it! It was missing a knob, was covered in crayon drawings and some sticky gunk. I sanded it down, painted it, added a new knob and gave it a new home. YES, I'm the neighbor who rummages through your trash, and I’m not afraid to admit it. I’m saving our landfills one furniture piece at a time. LOL



  1. I'm not ashamed to admit that I pick things up from other people's trash too! The last thing I found was 2 adorable little Adirondack chairs that I painted turquoise. They were peeling something awful and one of them had a loose leg, but some sandpaper and a screwdriver fixed them right up. Now I just need some little babies to sit in them! :-)

  2. I'm sorry I missed this post. I love what you did with the table. It looks great! Good job, lady.

  3. I love it! I have a chest that was my baby chest. I started sanding it and still need to finish it. You did a great job!

  4. What a great result from your project! I'll admit it, I'm envious that you have neighbors that get rid of good things! My neighbors are boring. . . no good stuff to repair here! Of course, there's always the thrift store!!

    Love your blog! I'm your newest follower!
