We all have that pile of junk that we just don’t know what to do with. It sits your garage or in your closet, until you finally decide to give it a new home at Goodwill. We challenged 8 Porch Bloggers to shop their home for 5-10 items that they no longer want, send those items over to their swap partner, and then give the items they received a makeover!

Be sure to head over to their blogs for a full tutorial, and to see how they transformed the rest of their items!
