When it comes to popular trends in furniture, there’s lightly distressed, heavily distressed, and possibly rotting. I wouldn’t aim for number three. High probability of splinters. But that didn’t stop Charlie from nabbing and rehabbing this sweet little rocking chair that her daughter discovered on the side of the road. PS: her daughter is three! Way to start ‘em young Charlie!
Check it out on her blog Attempting Aloha.
And here’s another in the dangerously distressed category. Could this little thing be saved? Nope. Sorry. It was thrown in a fire. The end.
Just kidding! I wouldn’t do that to you. That wasn’t the end at all. Angela at Humble Beginnings came along and snatched it out of the firewood pile just in time. She turned what she could save into this adorable pink bench. Redemption.
See, don’t ever give up! Maybe sometimes you feel like a rotting old
pile of firewood too, but you are actually full of incredible potential
underneath. All you need is a heavy-duty sanding and some paint, and
possibly some new handles on your drawers! Er … that’s not what I
meant … my motivational analogy kind of went off the rails there. You
know what I mean.
