My husband being a handyman has been very useful for re-purposing things we've taken in for free. He's managed to restore our heater to working condition, fix our shattered greenhouse, and even fix furniture that we've found for free online.
We actually managed to make a bit of extra money re-purposing various furnishings we've found on sites such as www.gumtree.com
, which we've passed along and sold as home-staging and landlord furniture to places such as http://www.roomservicebycort.com/
and Home Stagers outlets.
Wish I had some of the knitting skills I've seen here though. Is there a section for crafts on the site?
