So in this post I am just going to share with you some of my projects that were done with sample boards. Which I get for free from our local flooring store dumpster. I guess they will just throw away the sample boards once a company discontinues a certain product line.
So I started getting these sample boards from their dumpster whenever I could find them. After I discovered all of the things I could do with what came on them. It did not matter what type of a sample board it was. It could be carpet samples, tile samples, or any other type of samples. I would make sure and take it home with me.
Once I had them at my place I would then take off all of them sample pieces and put them up until I would find some new project that I wanted to do with them. And it has definitely worked out well for me for my projects. I really like the idea of using a bunch of different random type pieces for projects.
Especially with the carpet pieces. I have made a bunch of different types of diy rugs from them. Just by taking all of the sample pieces that I would get, and putting them all together in a cool looking fashion.
And of course the best part is that these sample boards are free! So whe it comes time to take a project apart because I have no room for it, I don’t feel all that bad, because I did not have to put any cash out for it. So I will just take them apart and reuse the sample tile pieces in another project.
Well you really cannot reuse the carpet pieces. Those most definitely get too dirty around my home to be reused! But the other pieces like tile and flooring pieces, can be reused. I have more projects that I will be posting soon that have sample pieces in them. So I will be updating this post as soon as I get them finished and on here.
So good luck to you and all of your projects that you may take on!
