Dumpster Dive (redo a piece of furniture found on side of road, or given to you for free)
Announcing our first Home Sweet Home challenge of 2011 - Dumpster Dive!
Have you ever rescued a sad
looking table from the side of the road or an ugly chair from a dumpster? Is your Mom always trying to offload
an ugly bookshelf on you? Do you have a seriously
ugly piece of furniture you've been meaning to redo? If so, we've got a challenge for you... Dumpster Dive! The idea is for you to take an ugly piece of furniture (anything will do) and make it fabulous
. Don't worry, you'll have lots of time to work on this, we're going to open a spot for you to post your entries for voting on June 30th. You're required to show at least before and after photos and anything you've already posted on Craftster is not eligible for this contest. The Rules:
- Must have at least 1 before, 1 after picture Update: A before photo is strongly suggested to show the dramatic transformation, but is not required.
-Must use either and old piece of furniture already in your possession, found on side of road, or given to you for free! Other than that, you can spend as much, or as little
as you want on materials.
-This challenge is open to all Craftster members.
-Each participant may enter one project, it may be a set or a single piece.
-It can be any style or made out of any material as long as it fits the theme
