A Repurposed Life

In an age where excess has become normal, it's nice to take a step back and reuse things.  Brand new is not always the best, in some cases quite the contrary and in our world of "instant gratification" where every want and need is often met, regardless of price, free or almost free is refreshing.  Be creative!  Like using the galvanized water tub as a cocktail table.  Paint it any color you want!

Make your own bench out of salvaged Queen Ann chairs. Paint these babies a bright color for more punch and panache.

Who would have thought to add wrought iron to the kitchen?

A new dog bed anyone?

This makes a great "shield" for a lot less than what the landscape guy will come up with!

"Fake" books made from bricks are an inexpensive way to fill your bookshelves.

Make your own doormat from old pallets.

And an old fence quickly becomes a great architectural element to brighten your house.    Who knew?

Use your old horse models and turn them into hooks for your tack room.  Love it!

Have a great day.  Don't throw it away, recycle it!
