As Winter nears our Fall weekends become more
precious, don't they?  I hope yours was lots of fun.

Speaking of fun - let's kick the week off with a fun Repurposeful Monday.

At a recent Japanese Expo in France a
recycle video game was debuted:
Simply insert an empty soda can and the player
gets a few minutes of free game time.  Brilliant!

A vintage radio was transformed into an
Industrial Chic-style end table:

Two old Ford door vans were mounted on a custom cabinet:

Part of an antique traffic light was
repurposed into a rustic clock:

Think outside the box when you
run across a vintage metal drawer:

A desk was repurposed into a chic kitchen island:

A distressed vintage chest of drawers was transformed
into a charming painted storage cabinet:

Another damaged chest of drawers was given
an extended useful life as a retro-inspired bar:

A variety of dresser drawers were painted and
arranged to make a bookcase headboard:

Two drawers were attached and painted to form a doll house:

You're right, it is a little late in the year
to turn an old bicycle into a planter:

 A thrift shop silver-plated tea pot makes
an elegant chipmunk feeder: 

A vintage flour sifter makes a nostalgic utensil holder: 

I've seen several different variations of tea
cup chandeliers but this one is adorable:

Paired with weathered wood an antique chicken
cage makes a sophisticated coffee table.

Spray paint unusual glass shades and use
with candles for Fall outdoor entertaining.

All of today's ideas aren't just clever, they're practical and repurposeful!

  1. So many fabulous ideas, Jan! I particularly like the use of dresser drawers to make a useful headboard.
