Repurposing is one of the best ways to start the week.   So, let's get started.

Looking for a way to safely store treasures while you're away?

So clever!

Don't like the look of a paper towel dispenser?  Hide it under a shelf:
Instead of buying a shelf at Amazon for $48 try making your own.

Another great use of a washing machine drum.

Magnetic strips glued to a particle board keep your bobbins organized. 

Dress up your office by turning odds-and-ends
pieces of vintage jewelry into magnets:

Just a Girl

Place Casters on old drawers and use them
under beds for extra storage.  Turn this:


into this:

 Dukes and Duchesses

A piano stool and a wheel from a vintage wheelchair can make a coffee table?!
                   This                               +                 This

Mamie Janes
Just top with a piece of thick cut and polished glass and voile - instant table.

The next time you run across an inexpensive trunk or foot
locker, consider turning it into a unique coffee table:

I Heart Nap Time

Old thrift store bundt pans are great bird feeders.  Doesn't
this old step ladder make a charming planter and bird bath?

Eclectically Vintage

Old Beds
  An old iron headboard makes a lovely gate.
Isn't this a beautiful scene?

Go out and make it a great Monday.  See you tomorrow.
