5 DiY Projects That I Did With Sample Boards I Got For Free

I will show you some of my diy projects that I have done using free sample boards

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.


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!

I am 47 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for over 7 years now. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I was first released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. So I have been back to school and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I was focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have changed my mind on that now and I have been focusing on doing affiliate sales and working on my website. These projects that I have been doing for the last 4-5 years is what has been literally saving my life! And keeping me off of the drugs! I am trying to bring about some awareness concerning addiction and what can happen to a person if they use needles with my website. Though I changed my mind on working as a counselor I still want to try and help others out there who are still struggling with their addictions. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
