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?
