If you’ve never been to The ReBuildering Center in north Portland, you should check it out for sure. They take donated building materials of all sorts and sell it back to the public…for cheap! While you have to dig for treasures, it’s worth it to get a little dirty. Tile, lights, tubs, cabinets, sinks, lumber, doors, nuts & bolts….you name it, they got it.
Take this $2.00 screen I found hiding away in a dark corner. It was exactly what I “needed” for my ever-growing jewelry collection.
I scrubbed this bad boy down with hot soapy water and there you had it. Maybe someday I’ll work up the energy to paint it a fun color.
