A benefit of being a constant “redouxer” is that people are always calling you for “free” things they either have and want to get rid of, or something they saw on the side of the road.Â I have not been above piling my children into the car at the crack of dawn to score that free child’s antique chair someone saw the night before on their way home from a party!Â Recently I had to have two doors made for my home and when I went around to the back of the warehouse, there was a free to me conference chair for my son’s room, to go with his “free” desk.Â Here are some before and after pics of my “free to me’s”.Â There are more “frees” awaiting my attention in my home, will post as they get ready for their close up.Â

I have one of those “open” living room/dining room/entry way type of floor plan so I needed to create some sort of entry.Â This worked perfectly to create the “illusion” of an alcove.
