Save Your Scraps!

I’ve alwayssss told my friends when scrap-booking to save your scraps.  You just never know when you might need that little piece of scrap paper that is just perfect for the next project!  Well I hate to even tell you (so I won’t) how long ago I pulled up the carpet in my front room and put down Pergo laminate flooring (I also did my kitchen).  But when I did, I didn’t finish the very small coat closet.  Soooo, since I’m wanting to sell my house I have a check list of things I need to complete and the coat closet was on my list.   When I got to the back of the closet I needed a board 3″ deep to finish it off and I didn’t have a jig saw to cut one down.  Soooo, I will tell you that I was doing a happy dance when I found the PERFECT 3″ deep board at the right length to finish it off . . . . because I had kept my scraps!!!! Yahooooo!!! Just a tip . . . . if you don’t want to replace your old beat up baseboards (it WAS just a closet) remove them, take out the nails, fill the holes with wood putty, clean them off & polish them with DARK – Old English Polish – it’s amazing!! Oh, and I number them so I can remember which one goes where – it’s a bit easier to put them back exactly where they came from! 😉

  1. Okay who finds a scrap that is the exact same measurement?? You are crazy lucky! It looks really good and I must confess……my linen closet is not done yet. 🙂
