Nice to meet you Charlene and Ethansmom!  I am a newbie too, well sorta new and I am glad to see you!  I hope we can share some fun and good ideas!  Now that it is spring, my mind is racing all over the "going to be a treasure" that is in the basement, spare room, back porch, you name it!  I can't walk the dog without bringing something home!

Hi! I'm Kayren and I was on here looking for places I could put my work at home ad when I came across your group and just HAD to join. I'm the person you always see stopping my minivan to snatch something wonderful from the trash right before the waste truck gets there! I love repurposing other people's trash and have several things in my house that were great, but needed TLC. One little wooden rocking chair back had come off. It has a handpainted bear on the back. My hubby nailed it back on (properly, this time) and it's served two of my daughters! Going to color now...

Hello ladies,
I am a SAHM here in Texas.  Some of my hobbies are:  cooking, crocheting, painting, etc.
I just love looking at what you ladies have done with things to make them look new again.  So keep them coming.

Hello everybody. Sorry I am just getting around to answering some of these posts. I am Donna and I run a daycare in my home. I am married to a great guy, Earl and I have 2 beautiful daughters Krista and Kelly and 3 gorgeous grandkids, Peyton, Hunter and Abby. I love to fix things up and make over rooms with odd stuff that people would never have thought to do. I have done alot of my daughter's rooms in their homes and my own and I am currently working on my elderly uncle's home. I could use some help with one thing. Tell me how to post pics on this site. I have a few things I can share if I can just get them on this comp. Thanks.

Hi! My name is Marilyn and I am a junk recycler from way back.  I recycled before the word recycle was in the dictionary-almost. 

I am a painter and have taught decorative painting for over 20 years.  I love to decorate things that others throw away.  We moved to the Ozark Mts. about 4 years ago and I had to sell most of the things I had already made in order to have room for the supplies I needed to move.  I am cleaning out my building and I feel like I am Christmas shopping!!!

I have never been burdened with money so creativity took its place!  I can hardly wait to see what treasures can be made next.  I am looking forward to hearing what y'all come up with and will be glad to share what I know and do as well.

I LOVE THAT STORY!!!  Please post some pics of the things that you have done.  Re-purposing is the best kind of recycle in my opinion anyways!!!  :P
