We know you had good intentions: when you come across a free curbside cast-off, or have a piece you've become seriously attached to, it's hard to let it go. But after your best efforts to work it into your home, something's still not working…and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. When you're faced with the decision to toss or transform an old piece of furniture, why not upgrade it into something useful? Not only is this approach cost efficient and fun, but you also get to customize your designs as you go!
