Dumpster Diving Again!




This is a bookshelf I found on trash day. It was  homemade  and probably storage from someone's garage.

The back they had put on the shelves was thick and uneven.  I wanted to cover it with trim.

The front also needed some trim.  I had four spindles and was too lazy to go to the store to buy trim.  I used the spindles to trim out the edges.  I glued and screwed the spindles to the edges to give it a cleaner look.  The final step was to prime and paint it.

  3. Thanks a lot for the kind words. There is nothing better than upcycling something that was free. I am mildly obsessed with spindles (along with a few other things) and use them often.
    Have a great weekend!

  9. Thanks for the kind words. Sometimes when I am in the garage working late (I have this job thing that really interferes with my crafting) I think is this really going to work, or have I lost my mind. Sometimes it turns out like you thought it would. This was one of those times.
