Do you follow us on Facebook? If not, you’re missing out on some of the best everydaytrash.com content: photos and comments posted by YOU, the readers. Some of my favorite recent updates have come from Al Frank in Edina, Minnesota. Al is the father of my dear friend Lindsay and (in the nearly 15 years I’ve known their family at least) always has a home improvement project in the works. Lately, he has taken to refinishing dumpstered furniture. Here are two trashtastic examples:
A national bagel store was throwing out a bunch of chairs. The next stop was the dumpster. The manager said I could have some. I rescued 8 chairs. I took them apart and refinished them. My wife, Kathy, reupholstered them. We’ll now enjoy them at our cabin in Wisconsin.
I made this table from Corian and a pine beam destined for the dumpster.
Thanks for sharing, Al! Fan us on Facebook, trashies! Post your projects, Facebook fans!
