How To Impress Your Partner With a Pile of "Junk"

 What do you do when you have a bunch of misc. cast-a-way antique scraps?

Take the table base that you found in a raccoon-feces-infested-garage-attic and re-size it to suit....

...the old door you found in someone's garbage....

...then add the drawer that used to smell like cat pee...

...then attach the top from an old dresser that had largely rotted into the ground...

...and, like magic, you've impressed your beloved partner who...

...quickly improves the situation even more to...

...create a pretty sassy front porch presentation!

Remember, pretty much nothing is truly junk.


  1. HI J&S...I'm impressed ...I love it!!
    It looks great there on the front porch!!

  2. Looks pretty. . .but does it stink? ;-)

  3. What a treasure. You have made a wonderful piece from it.

  4. It even impresses your coworker!

    You guys should have your own series on HGTV. We must come up with a name for the pilot....

  5. You know how much I love this project! Recycling is the BEST! It looks great there on your newly opened porch. I'm amazed at the amount of stuff you get done. We have the ambition, but with the kids schedules and us working it's tough to fit it all in sometimes.

    Really nice piece of "new" furniture! ~Vonnie
