Underneath the layers of paint, are a great mantel & door! My boyfriend got these from a job he was doing on a home built in the 20’s/30’s – the owner was going to throw them out! He also brought home lots of cool hardware & molding. Being a carpenter presents my boyfriend with lots of great opportunities to salvage & reuse, but EVERY job has it’s item discards.
How about you? Do you currently or have you had a job that allowed you to claim items headed to the dumpster? What kind of stuff did you get?
