You know all the furniture that you see people have left out at the curb for trash pickup, that on the surface looks ready for demolition? With a little fix up, these pieces can be saved and used in your own home.

I found this bookcase (everyone needs a good bookcase), and it was unsturdy and unattractive. But, I went to the lumber yard and bought new wood and used screws to add support backing to the back and now it is sturdy. Then I removed the black handles and repainted this in a more appealing white color. Then I re-attached the handles and look at the amazing results! With a little new wood and a coat of paint, this now is a functional and attractive bookcase!
