Do you ever look in the "Materials" section of Craigslist? We do! You can find great remnants or raw materials just waiting for a project. Check out some of our favorite finds below (and what we'd do with them!).

  • Custom Cut Board Feet From A Redwood: There has to be a kitchen table or at least side table in here somewhere. Maybe you don't want to go that large and just want a simple shelf somewhere. Chances are they are willing to work with you!
  • Giant Bag Of Packing Peanuts: These could come in handy for shipping Christmas presents or even making a funky light fixture.
  • 1x3 Fence Boards: These would make a great picnic table or if you don't have the space would refloor your outdoor balcony space!
  • Antique Iron Wheel: For those who are daring this could be turned into a great chandelier. For those who are less adventurous it can simply be put on the wall or propped against a fence in the garden.
  • Kitchen Window: This looks like a perfect candidate for a mini-greenhouse. Add a few simple pots and you have a bug free, critter free environment!
