You can see the $2 hollow core doors and more recent finds here.
Gail’s inspiration for marrying 2 pieces of furniture originally came from Sharon S on a message board from years ago. You can see Sharon’s work on her Facebook page, Another Man’s Treasure. You will find lots of inspiration there!
The second $2 door and a $5 dresser mirror were used to make a DIY entry way piece.
Gail made the easiest hall tree ever from a door for a Habitat for Humanity event in Madison Indiana.
After seeing a desk/hall table in a magazine, inspiration struck for this project: Ammo Box coffee table
Cutting up furniture is a favorite pass time, where these projects evolved from desks:
Early on, Gail was inspired by Ballard Designs to make a drying rack out of an old crib rail.
Don’t let your budget deter you. Hear all about junking, and how an old curbed ping pong table plywood was used to make a corner headboard bench.
