I have an amazing up-cycling Quick-Tip-Tuesday for you today. Did you know you can make shapely furniture feet by re-purposing old furniture legs?
Julie (and hubby Marc) from Simple Redesign turned these fancy wooden legs into gorgeous feet using an old-school hand saw.
Take a look…

Because of the curves and inability to perfectly level, a hand saw was the best option over the 8 other cutting options we had. Sometimes old school is the best method!”[/box]
Love this tip! Wood furniture feet can easily run from $10-$45+ depending on the type of wood and detail… so this makes good re-purposing sense.
Save a leg while saving money and create beautiful restyled furniture!
I can’t wait to see what projects Julie uses these shapely feet on. And if you’re not familiar with her work, here’s some teaser pics below. All of her pieces are unique and painted to perfection in gorgeous vibrant colors!

I hope this entices you to hop on over to Simple Redesign Facebook Page and give her new a like. Julie gives a TON of great furniture painting and repair tips and always has new restyled furniture to share with her followers. I really admire Julie. She’s always sharing… and certainly an excellent example on how to run a successful furniture painting business!
