Refinish a countertop or give an old piece of furniture a rustic look by outfitting it with a surface made from a surprising wooden throwaway: paint stirrers. Nail a piece of cut-to-size plywood to your item, trim off the curved ends of the paint stirrers, and attach the straight lengths to the plywood top using wood glue. A little wood filler, sanding, and staining are all that's left to bring this project to its charming end.
