The garage sales are beginning to appear.  Every Saturday brings a few more.  This year, I’ll be looking for furniture and canning jars.  I once scored an awesome side table for $2 that was rickety and in need of stain.  Once we sanded it, we realized it was solid oak.  We tightened the screws, stained and varnished it, and it looks amazing.  I saw its twin for sale on Kijiji for $200 – score!

Here’s some awesome furniture upcycle ideas.  I especially love the old entertainment centre turned into a laundry room organizer.  Who hasn’t seen one of these poor things left at the side of the road with a FREE sign on it?
