Today I was taking a walk through the neighborhood. It's 28 degrees today, but I desperately wanted to get outside for some exercise and sunlight. I guess everyone is getting into spring cleaning, because there was a lot of stuff at the curb. I looked through several piles casually as I strolled by. Most of it was junk. Some things had potential, but I wasn't sure when I could get to more projects (example, a really pretty, but broken, bed. The posts were hollow, so if the tops were removed and a couple drainage holes added, it could have made pretty, 4'x8"x8" planters).
Then I saw it. Two white wire shelves. They were dirty, but not broken. A quick wipe-down and a few dollars on brackets, and they'll be perfect.
I am working on converting a seldom used third bedroom/craft room into a walk-in pantry. I had been planning on buying this type of shelving to hang on one of the walls. This saved me $20 over buying them at the home improvement store, and I kept something out of the landfill
Have you found anything great on the curb recently?
