Monday means Repurposing Time at fleaChic.
Let's start with some cute garden ideas:
Technically, using an old rusty wheelbarrow as a planter
isn't necessarily repurposing but it is neat, isn't it?

 Tea cups and saucers used as bird feeders are so cool.

Use a lemon, orange or a grapefruit to start your seedlings. Plant
the entire thing in the ground and the rind will compost directly
into the soil to nourish the plant as it grows.

A set of alphabet imprint stamps can
even be useful in the garden.

The ultimate organic garden marker!
Here's a repurposing craft idea that the kids could make:
EVERYONE needs a hidden house key.  When the kids get bored have them hot glue a pinecone or twigs to the bottom of an empty medicine bottle which can be loosely buried in the yard.  Great craft idea for keeping those little hands busy!
What a charming way to display a faucet handle collection.

Funning With Sisters
How many repurposed items can you
count on this birdhouse?

It's a little late to be bird-thoughtful but
keep this idea in mind next Spring:
Pollyanna Pumpkin
Set out a broom for the little tweeters
to use when making their nests.

Here are a few cool miscellaneous repurposing ideas that I've
been meaning to post and always seem to forget they're in the file:

An old cracked violin that couldn't be repaired proved that it
still was useful as the frame for a miniature string workshop.

 It might take a second glance to see that this awesome
Dunce Dog is painted on a set of school lockers:
Paul Walsh
From old baseball bats to a new rocker:
Bicycle  +  wheel chair  =  Whaircycle!
Very cool.  (I love inventors!)
The Big Lebowski bowling pins are cute:
 You could paint a caricature of just about
any character on a bowling pin.
Well, that's it in a nutshell!  Hope you enjoyed today's
Repurposeful Monday ideas.  See you tomorrow.


  1. Love your blog - I'm always looking for garden ideas! I'll be back for sure!

  2. The faucet handle collage is fabulous...that is one of my favorites of everything you have posted. Wonder how long it would take to collect that many!

  3. I love the faucet collage.
    I have taken some and attached the to a post by the outdoor shower. Just pick the one for your towel and bag.
    It is super cute but not as fabulous as your photo !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. These are all fabulous. Love the bike and wheel chair. That is the way to go for a ride in a wheel chair! I too love the faucet art work. That is so great.
