Tip #15: Nothing fits?

Have you looked in all the stores including thrift stores and garage sales and still can't find that perfect piece of furniture for that corner or wall? When we first moved into this house, I looked everywhere for a long table skinny enough to not be in the walkway. The only one I found was so out of my price range it would have taken me 10 years worth of Xmas's & Bday's to be able to afford it. Not wanting to wait that long, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make one. I took a trip to the ReStore and then to Lowe's. I found an antique cabinet door thin enough for the table top I wanted. I cleaned it well then screwed on table leg mounts I bought at Lowe's. Painted 4 legs & screwed them in. Voila! A table was born. And the best thing about it? It was only $25 to make.

If you can't find it, make it!
