Trash to Treasure Sunday...

This morning while blog hoping Analise's Show and Tell Sunday, I got to wondering if I had anything I'd really transformed from trash to treasure. This was more my forte when I was younger and making our first home. Money was tight, and better spent on things other than home decorating. I also learned over the years that sometimes it's easier (and cheaper in the long run) to simply buy what you want, rather than trying to create it from leftovers. Then I remembered these few things...
Last year I gave my scrappy room a major makeover. I shopped thrift stores and for under $100 I bought these two diamonds-in-the-rough. Mr Warren and son thought surely the sales clerk was wrong when he showed them these two pieces and said, "Yes, I'm sure this is what your wife bought." They hardly thought them worth carrying home, but within a few days they were transformed from this... 


to this...

I love how these turned out, and Mr Warren and son were surprised to see that even these two dressers turned out as well as they did. Of course I knew all the time that all they needed was a little TLC.
So what have you transformed from Trash to Treasure? If you haven't done it lately, maybe it's time to give it a try.
