Trash to Treasure – Half Circle Side Table Makeover

Here is yet ANOTHER trash to treasure makeover. A neighbor was getting rid of this cute half circle side table (as well as a few other fun things) so I grabbed it. In the past couple of months I have made some decent money making over and selling furniture that either myself, my husband, or friends find for me on the curb waiting for the garbage trucks (or waiting for someone like me to come…

Trash to Treasure – Side Table/Humidor

There I go again, picking things out of people’s trash piles. I can’t help myself. Well, I have to admit, I usually spot something on the side of the road and then send my husband to get whatever it is. OR, a lot of times he finds things when he is out and about and brings things home for me. We make a good team. Anyway, a neighbor was getting rid of this cute little…

Trash to Treasure Writing Desk Makeover

My husband did it again! He took this old writing desk (I think it is a writing desk, am I right??) off the side of the road, which was meant for the garbage trucks, and brought it home for me. He is a trash picker. You can see all the other goodies he has brought home for me and their trash to treasure makeovers here. This piece was very cute, but was also very beat…

Trash to Treasure Side Tables

If you’ve been following me at all, then you know my husband has found some pretty good things at the curb waiting for the garbage trucks.  Like this Trash to Treasure End Table, This Bench, and these Wicker Chairs!  I, however, never have much luck in this department.  That is until a few weeks ago when I spotted THESE! The day I found these was trash day, and consequently as I was leaving my neighborhood,…

Side Table From Trash to Treasure

New Project… My husband is a trash picker!  He literally took this old side table off the side of the road, which was meant for the garbage trucks, and brought it home for me.  The top needed work but overall it was in pretty good shape, so I was happy he did that!  You know what they say…”One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”  My mind started thinking of ideas immediately on how I could…

Reader DIY Trash to Treasure

Check out this great trash to treasure transformation that my high school friend Heather was able to pull off.  Her boyfriend literally took this piece out of someone’s trash for her because he thought she could do something with it.  (What a nice boyfriend!). You know how the saying goes….”someone else’s trash is another’s treasure”.  Nice work Heather!!! Here is how it looked when they got it. It is a nice piece but was pretty beat…
