A little pinterest and a little dumpster divin'

As always I am linking up over at The Vintage Apple 
Yesterday I talked about going over to Dillon to get pieces of wood to work on a little project...well of course as with every project I had to resort to Pinterest for some inspiration, this chick cannot stay away from there! I was so excited to find lots and lots of pins after typing in driftwood and there were a good bit of links to helpful blogs for my project! Winner winner chicken dinner!!! Sorry I just cannot hold back my excitement. 
Also about 2 months ago I scored this old dresser that these people were just going to throw up, well actually they did throw it out and said people...well I don't really even know who they. Yes you read that right, this chick did her first ever dumpster dive! With lots of help from Anthony at 11:00 at night. There is one drawer missing but that's ok because it can serve as a little shelf or something! Well I have been wracking my brain really hard on how I am going to redo this dresser and of course with lots of help from Pinterest I am getting started on it this week, I cannot wait! So here is the inspiration I have been savoring this week from Pinterest:

Make sure you link up all your awesome Pinterest finds from this week over at The Vintage Apple and check out what the other girls have discovered too!

4. The Knot - this island is called Jekyl Island in Georia and the island has this section of beach that is just covered in driftwood. There is no swimming here but oh my good Lord it is the most amazing site ever! If you are ever driving through Georgia please take the exit and go check this place out. You are missing out if you haven't.

  1. What lovely collages you've created, I love them both! If you don't mind me asking, how do you do that? I've gone into Picassa before and tried to create collages but they never look like the ones you have created... Love the pics!
