Oh my! If you have never shopped the cull bin at Home Depot, make sure you check it out the next time you’re there. I went late Fridday night to get some wire, and only had about 10 mins before they closed. I took an extra couple of minutes to check out the cull bin…. paydirt! They had their regular bin full, and to flat carts of 2×4’s and other goodies. I got all the 1×5’s I could carry (I rushed in, so I didn’t get a cart). They were all painted green (51 cents). I think they may be perfect for my next window project!
I went back the next day to get more goodies. I have two particular projects in mind to build, and I needed quite a few pieces of small lumber. Not having a pickup truck, it’s easiest for me to buy the smaller pieces, less than 45 inches in length. I got tons of pieces, 2×4’s, 4×4’s, 2×6’s, 2×2’s. Each of the items I got were 51 cents. At my home depot, they are 1.01 if they have their end painted yellow. I’m so excited, but alas, I must wait till it gets at least above freezing. heheheh
Sewing cabinet/side table
We actually bought this cabinet the same time we bought this one. They both were pretty rough.
. . . here she is! I absolutely love this color! We ended up gluing down the lid on this cabinet, due to some hinge problems. The hinges were in need of repair, and it was easier to just glue it than it was to try to repair it.
We left the little pull down drawer for hiding trinkets, keys and such.
Please think before you throw out old furniture. They don’t make things like they used to. It is a shame that our landfills are full of such “diamonds in the rough”.
