I picked this desk off of the side of the road and it was in pretty bad shape.  I put the leg back on and painted it. 
This dresser was also a roadside find.  It was beat up and abandoned. 
This is one of my all time favorites.  I just love the way it turned out.
You cant really tell because the picture is a little dark but, there is leopard print on this.  I took an old foot locker and turned it in to a funky coffee table.
This was an old toy chest that I did to match the coffee table.  I made a serving tray to go inside.

One of my favorite hobbies is curb shopping because you never know what you will find.  I love to take other peoples cast offs and turn them in to fun furniture.
