DIY Network: Row, Row, Row Your Gold Boat

Remember this little sailboat from my latest garage sale adventure? He’s the star of this week’s DIY Network post after being given a glamourous update. All the more reason to remember that one man’s trash can be another man’s salvageable treasure, and even the junkiest of the junk can find its way into becoming some cute home decor.

Freebie little sailboat's about to get a shiny upgrade.

Have you upgraded anything from a garage sale freebie box lately? If yay, I’d love to see it!

    Nice job on the sailboat Emily! You took a very non-traditional approach to a traditional piece! :-)

      Thanks Mindy! I’m happy how it turned out; quite striking amongst the rest of the driftwood and stained paneling in the room.

    Simple but quite potent. You look at it and it is hard to think of anything else beyond floating as you softly sway in a large body of water as waves gently lap against the boat… peace. Great find! Wonderful new treasure!
