What do mean we're out of coffee?

The coffee is gone
The jars are empty.
But I salvaged the lids.

Salvaged Drawer

Salvaged Drawer front from an old vintage desk.

I bought this desk at a rummage sale for charity. I paid 1.00 for the desk. I salvaged all the drawers. This front panel was from a drawer with broken sides.

Shabby white paint, primmy tole roses, sandpaper and sealant.

I will attach two hooks to hang it and some chic antique white cupboard knobs auntie found at a salvage store.

Shabby coat hanger for my daughter's room.

not bad for a buck.

Put a Lid on it

Sometimes I buy junktique odds & ends by the box. Sometimes I buy jars off eBay and they arrive smashed. Most eBay sellers are ignorant to the concept of bubble wrap.
