What's a Hillbilly Treasure?

I suppose now-a-days they call it "Re-Purposing." Where I come from...you call it "Making it do with what ya got!"

We've been collecting...

Just so you don't think I'm a slacker or anything, here are some of the treasures we have found lately. Some at sales, some free, all next to free.

You're thinking what a jumbled up mess! I'm thinking what a mess, but so much fun! We can't wait to get started. We've been looking for my husband some tools. These are the only power tools he owns:

So's he's going to be using a lot of hand tools, but he doesn't mind. He says it will be therapeutic. I don't think I'm going to garage sales tomorrow. I think we will just start on one of the many projects shown in that mess shown above. Maybe I'll just clean the mess. I hate messy workspaces. Don't you?


  1. I think there is great satisfaction in transforming a piece from thrown out to stylish and useful.
    Paul said your hubby needs to store his power tool cables properly. That's the electrician talking :lol:

  2. Looking good! I can't wait to see what the finished itmes are!
