Do you ever wonder what stores like Staples or Best Buy throw into the trash? I do, which is why I decided to go dumpster diving. I found all sorts of interesting things, but most of the items were not worth the effort to salvage.
However, I did find an “EXIT” sign. The outer frame was in great condition, but the red letters were cracked. I took the frame home, cleaned it, removed the broken letters, and replaced them with red construction paper. Then I hung it up over my garage door.
I think it looks pretty cool.
