Tossed & Found

I have junk envy. A while ago my sister spotted a hunk of wood in a skip near my parents house and it turned out to be the most awesome rocking chair. It now has upholstered cushions as well as a brand new home. Inspired? Here's a creative couple who have made a killing out of other people's rubbish.
Wary Meyers are a husband and wife creative team. Their book 'Tossed & Found' follows their ethos of “reduce, reuse, recycle” with step by step 'how to' guides. There's even penned sketches of each concept, which I always like to see.

I love this upcycled dresser. Everyone needs a home for their pantalons! So if you have an old set of drawers, some extra wood lying around, the time, the space, the motivation and a scroll saw...get cracking!

Get the book here


  1. I love those drawers. I'd totally saw my hands off if I attempted that, though.

  2. yep! A little too much hard work I think! In this case I'd prefer to buy than DIY!

  3. Yeah- call me a bin-raker and then blog about my find! The cheek!

  4. Ooh another good book for my collection... will i find it in secondhand stores do you think? :)
