Do you wander through Second Use wondering and wishing you could re-purpose some of the awesome stuff into your home or life, but end up leaving it all behind for another day – AGAIN?

Heidi, Monica and Mary Jean, will be at Second Use Building Materials to share some of their projects and tips to help you envision and then reshape salvaged materials into unique home improvements and functional art. Their projects range from transforming a discarded old car jack into a light fixture, to reusing multiple materials collected (sometimes stored for years) into a bathroom remodel.  Come join the fun and take away some inspiration!

Our Project Gallery – Take a peek!

We are a fan and follower of the Pink Toes and Power Tools blog.

Loved her post about creating a visual library (project gallery) of past projects.  It’s so much more intuitive and fun than filing through text links. I’m a visual person so, a sucker for a picture any day.

Have a look by clicking “Our Project Gallery” up in the black bar next to FAQ. Kudos to Heidi who did the lion’s share of the work pulling it together!

Well, I’ll be honest here. Heidi created the whole lion. There was no sharing. ;)
