Many customers have expressed an interest in seeing how others have not only remodeled with salvage but repurposed, too. Here are a couple submissions from Second Use customers who got creative:

Jessie Styers took an old wooden window and turned it into a chalkboard to list chores for her kids. “We’ll see how long the chores keep up…” she says.




Lisa Thomas and her husband stripped down and framed a cabinet door to make a tall medicine cabinet between the studs in a small bathroom.








One customer with a blog called Polka Dot Galoshes took on a popular salvage project, building a headboard out of a salvaged door. She said she bought the five-panel door for $15, molding for $3, and used tools and paint she already owned.
