A little late to the party, but better late than never. Today Becky is having a Roadkill Rescue Party! And, NO, that would not be possums, racoons, armadillos and such. It would be the furniture, fun project, kind.
What a name huh?
My first item is this desk, that we did actually rescue from a pile of trash. I wish I had a before picture, but this was completed long before blogs came along. My husband reminded me that he had to glue some of the drawers back together. The top had extensive writing and scribbling, not to mention that it was plain dirty! We cleaned, sanded, glued, and painted. Now it sits in my son's bedroom and has been a great desk.
Next is this headboard that my husband made from an old door that came from his grandmothers house. He just added some details with molding that we had on hand, painted it to match the desk and attached it to the wall.
So there you have it, my rescues. We have plenty of old doors that are just waiting for a project. Now, head on over to Becky's and check out all of those other Roadkill Rescues.
I am a wife to one fantastic husband and mother to two wonderful children. One recently married and the other away at college, finding myself, for the first time with an empty nest. I enjoy making my home beautiful on a budget. I love the Lord and desire to please him in all that I do.
