coffee table made from chair legs
A new repurpose for me! I don't think I've ever made a coffee table out of repurposed chair legs. It's sturdy enough to use as a bench for extra seating.

This repurposed chair back coat rack is easy to make out of any chair you may have or find on the side of the road. This project takes only an afternoon.

Using an old chair, I'll show you how to make a fun, unique wall shelf using the chair seat. Perfect for a guest bath or guest room. Easy project!

gray window shelf This easy project uses some left over lumber pieces, but you could easily have the store cut your board, while you're picking up some brackets, and hooks.

DIY String Holder
www.homeroad.net

A repurposed candle jar becomes a free string holder.

I always enjoy spending time at this store looking around for a good deal. I typically go 2-3 times a month. The store is full of a huge variety of items. I'm mostly looking for cheap furniture deals and generally leave with several great items.
