You know that it's been way too long since we're had some repurposing inspiration.

Let's start with a parade -

Creative Spotting
For the Andover Olde Days parade in Andover, Maine,
Jim Coolidge repurposed empty oil drums into a children's
ride with the help of corporate sponsors.

 Soon it will be warm enough to sit on the porch at night.  Here's a
clever outdoor chandelier using vintage jars and a small wagon wheel.

Here's another (much simpler!) outdoor lighting idea.

Not Just a Housewife
Need an indoor herb garden planting idea?  So clever!

In My Own Style
Need a fireplace screen for the Summer?  How 'bout using an old window?

Sculptor Ann Bort creates beautiful designs from various mediums and
 concentrates most of her talents into repurposing everyday items into art.

Buenos Ares artist and musician Ezequiel Galasso
creates guitars out of old skate boards.

L'atelier d'Orel
Old sewing machine stands make charming table bases.

Nordic Interior
A dead tree branch makes an artistic and useful statement in this bedroom.

And, lastly, here is one of my all time favorite repurposing ideas:

Awesome Love
Isn't this THE CUTEST idea ever?!  What a
keepsake - a lamp of her childhood treasures!

Hope you got a laugh and some inspiration out of today's post.
