Fabulous Crafty Potential {Repurposed Wood}

I couldn’t wait to show you this!  One of my neighbors had finished using this white washed shabby chic planter box with industrial wheels!  As we drove by it was sitting on their curb…they were outside!  Yep, I did it!  It just so happened that we passed by and had to turn around and when we turned around, the house was on Stud’s side!  So, Stud got the un-fortunate opportunity to roll his window down and ask if they were really parting ways with this beautiful crafty potential!?!   Actually his words were, “Do you not want this anymore?!?”  The next couple of blocks down the road Stud got to hear me squeal and dream of all it’s possibilities!  My sweet B’s even had some ideas!!!  Granted it’s a 4 foot by 2 foot by 2 foot box, I’m doubting it will be an end table, art work, headboard….but dreaming about it is oh so much FUN!!!

  1. Hi Aimee, You kindly visited me a while back at Adirondack Girl @ Heart and saw some of my garage sale finds. I had a magnificent dumpster experience 15 years ago, so my eyes are always peeled for roadside and dumpster finds. In some respects, I view life as one big treasure hunt:)

  25. Ooooh! Know what I’d do!? So fun! What if you put a top on it…like an old door or planks and reinforced it. Then take out the backside (the damaged side) and put a shelf in and baskets? If you had a large enough space to use it…it could be like a craft island! Wow! You are soooo lucky! xo
