The next time you're walking down the street and see something set at the curb—a broken dresser or toy, or an old leather suitcase—consider cleaning it up and transforming it into something new. If you don't want to risk contact with other people's mysterious trash (and hey, bedbugs, I hear you), try rescuing something you were thinking of trashing or find a new use for something destined for the recycle bin. Sketch up some creative possibilities, and then turn your old item into something new.
