Do you like to work on "trash to treasure" projects?

One of my favorite things to do is to work on different "trash to treasure" projects. Since moving, I've finished a few projects...and still have more waiting to be finished.

Do you like to work on projects like this? Do you have a favorite type of project?

What's your favorite make over?

In case you weren't aware of it, we now have a "Trash to Treasure" subforum for pictures in the FC Gallery!

I'll be uploading some pictures as soon as I find the time to do it.

I'd love to see pictures of everyone's projects.

I've never had an interest or talent to do any thing like this. I like to see what others can do but it is not for me.

I love doing projects like this. I'm not working on anything at the moment, but hope to get back into it soon. Would love to see everyone's projects.

Our last "trash to treasure" project was an 86 Camaro IROC-Z. It has taken us about 5 yr - with the finishing touches coming this year and enter in a local car show next year.

The next project? a 51 Chevy pickup.

Sharon we have a 89 Ford Mustang that we have been working on for years. It hopefully will be done soon. This will be our car for the daughters to drive around.
Have a wonderful day.

Here is a trash to treasure item I saw today while going through Craigslist Arts and Crafts section. How imaginative! It's a old jewelry box that they converted into a doll armoire.
