FURNITURE REPURPOSING - behind the scenes

I would share some behind the scenes photos from
a past project that just might get you kick started on
your own repurposing projects or at least get you

A LITTLE REST





I do not have a lot to update you on the goings on

WHERE TO FIND FURNITURE LEGS - distressed white nightstands



Where do you find furniture legs?

Antique stores sometimes have metal and wood legs to buy.
My Restore has even had a bin of furniture legs available to
purchase. During clean up week George, my GF, and I have
taken legs off several wingback chairs. George found legs
attached to a wet road side sofa and managed to cram it into
the van. The wet sofa has to be taken to the landfill but for that
fee I get some nice legs. I have bought many bargain coffee tables
with great legs at yard sales. A little deconstruction and VOILA.
Not everyone has a big vehicle to pick up road side finds or can
carry a saw in their vehicle *just in case*. The legs I got for this
nightstand project came from a very simple place that anyone
can handle.

bottles. I love the bottles and the labels but recently
I moved them into the bathroom. The shower steam 
started to make the paper bubble and wave, looking
more shabby than chic, so I fixed them ...
