Happy Friday the 13th!

(Embrace what you can't change.)   

And who would want to change these dear old ladders?  Put them to use as kitchen towel holders
or - this is my fave - shoe racks.

Well, that pretty much kicked off
Repurposeful Friday:

Who would have thought that a metal
file cabinet could be sophisticated?

Here are some real 'gems' for organizing your jewelry:

An earring organizer - clever use of a printer's drawer.

Antique shoe forms are darling any way you
use them but these are also functional.

Find yourself running out the door without your jewelry and are
too rushed to go back to your bedroom to pick something out?
Solution:  Hang your jewelry in frames in the foyer as art!

Ready for more ideas?

Turn a baseball into a cabinet knob or clothes hook!

Yet another use of a vintage window.

Half of an old screen door and vintage
spoons are a charming combination.

What a great gift idea for the gardner!

Use baby crib springs as a display board.

LOVE the repurposing of these cheese boxes and lids.

Rustic columns, a bookshelf, or an antique mantel
make beautiful and unique headboards.

And, the Hard Core Vintage 
Repurposing Idea of the Week:

Have a great Friday the 13th!


  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Those images are just full of great ideas! Thanks so much for sharing them with us. I really need to re-organize my jewelry so this is timely for me.

  2. The organization fairy skips by my house on a regular basis! Wish I wasn't so impulsive and more of a follow-through-from-the-beginning type of person. Blogging keeps me grounded and focued for part of my day! Repurposefulness is such an honorable trait, isn't it?!
