Hello everyone. I have read several sites of people who are members and I too have to admit, I am addicted to bringing things that might end up in the dump and turn them into something cool. Those who dont understand, its hard to explain, but I am obsessed, hitting estate sales/yard sales and just keeping my eye out in the public and seeing junk and making something out of it. I have been doing this since Sept. of 2012 and finding trash and putting your spin on it and then to have someone purchase your creation and put inside or outside their home, well after my first sale, I was hooked. I have a site set up on the internet. Just go onto Facebook.com and type in PBs Furniture Restoration. I have lots of stuff that I have repurposed or created out of simple things.
