What to do with your auction goodies

Sometimes its hard to see the diamond in the rough when looking at items from auctions. It is true that some items we end up with have seen their  better days. However, if you are able to look past the surface to see the hidden potential you may end up with a hidden gem. Some things need a little TLC to really come to life. If you’re willing to put in a little work you can end up with a real treasure at a great price. Recently a group of photos of buggy seats landed upon my desk. Here is what the looked like when they were purchased.

I’ll be the first to admit, they don’t look like much, but buyer brought them home and gave them a little work.

With a little love, TCL, and some simple tools, they were able to make beautiful bench. All from those old buggy seats!

So next time you are thinking there is nothing at an auction that would interest you, remember to dig a little deeper and use your imagination. You never know what you might find and what you might end up with!

Therefore, it is a safer alternative to check the product&rsquos compatibility index before making a buying decision
