I've been asked to start a new once-a-week post theme. These posts will be tutorials based on items I find in the trash.
I do a lot of biking in the summer. I LOVE biking. I go for hours and hours. Just me, my bike, my ipod, and a lot of thoughts. I'm not a real biker- you know, the skinny tires and spandex. I rock the mountain bike, soccer shorts, and hot pink sunglasses.
One afternoon I was out in a neighborhood a few miles away when I biked past this piece in someone's trash. I stopped and took a look but I thought the bar on the top was weird and the whole thing was just ugly. Later that night my mom and I went for a ride and I passed it a second time. I started seeing a little potential. Before you know it I whipped out my cell phone..."Hey Dad, what are you up to right now?..." I could hear him roll his eyes over the phone.
People always tell me how independent I am for starting a business, living in this house, blah, blah blah. But in reality, I get A LOT of help. Think about all the furniture you see on here. I'm only a 5'4' 19 year old girl and I drive a tiny car. I can't even tell you how many times my parents or a friend has helped me lug something home, to a craft show, etc. Sometimes I can be pretty needy!
Anyway, time to talk about this piece of furniture (I don't even know what to call it - dresser? hutch? I've never seen anything like it).
I put the drawer back in and used a screwdriver to attach the door. That's it!
Would be cute in a bathroom or small kitchen. I have nowhere to put it so it'll be in the shop soon. I had a craft show this weekend and people kept asking me if I sold anything online or through etsy. I've been working on it all weekend. Coming soon! In the meantime, let me know if you're interested in this one.
(A tutorial on the little jars soon)
Have you found any trash that you've made beautiful? I'd love to hear about it!
Or if you have any trash you'd like to get rid of....
