I got some free tables with metal legs. They were by a dumpster I passed while running errands. There were a LOT of tables, but I only took eight of them. Now I wish I had taken all of them. The problem was how much room they were taking up in the truck, and where I would store them once I brought them home. I worked that out by dismantling them. If only I had brought more of them home. Here is a trio of diy side tables I made with some of the metal table legs.
I actually started this project in 2009! This vertical coat rack is the perfect solution for tight spaces. Use it in the bathroom for towels, by the front door for hats and coats. Hang it low for kids coats and hats.
Easy tutorial showing you how to make pretty pushpins out of yard sale vintage jewelry. Have some of granny’s old jewelry? Get it out of storage and keep it out in the open – give it a new purpose by adding thumb tacks. Of course, fine jewelry should never be repurposed this way, just old costume jewelry.
I picked up this mid century hutch at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago for $15! What a steal! BUT-the glass in one of the doors was broken. I had planned to use decorative metal but the pieces I have aren’t large enough. I’d love to get your ideas of what I should do with the doors now that the glass has been removed.
A FREE old chair is the perfect furniture to repurpose. This chair side table is great for outdoors by my drop cloth hammock or porch swing. I gave it a quick whitewash because I didn’t want it to look too new. I did hit a few glitches and had to call in a favor from a neighbor. I still get stumped and challenged on even some easy projects.
A free full length mirror gets a makeover with some rustic picture frame molding. Add some reclaimed wood for the perfect rustic framed full length mirror. The mirror had been in my way for months, happy to have it completed and out of the shop!
I know you’ve already seen the table, but I wanted to share this chair makeover with you and show you that the table not only works as a console or library table, but add a chair–and you have a writing table. The writing table is perfect for a home office or a kitchen nook.

How to make your own serving stands from repurposed drawer fronts and scrap spindles. Mindi will show you step by step how easy these serving stands are to make. The serving stands are perfect for small gatherings, parties, and even weddings!
Using FREE bed posts (have you ever seen a bed with these kinds of posts?) and some bargain plywood along with the picture frame molding I recently shared, I made this handy double column console table. I also think it would be great at a vintage wedding for displaying photos and a guest book.
What a lovely planter we have to share with you today. A hanging planter that is made from cedar scraps. Leave it to Mindi to make something so darn cute out of scraps. This would look oh so pretty on my DIY Picket fence! So funny how Mindi and I think alike. I have been toying with something very similar, but couldn’t quite figure out how to make it work….
