I’m always impressed with people who can creatively re-purpose ordinary things and give them new life. Today I’m sharing 9 ordinary items re-purposed in fabulous ways that impressed the heck out of me. In my humble opinion these were too good not to share, and all were better after!
Normally, I don’t have much extra time to surf the Internet and find good stuff like this.
But I created my own time and opportunity to surf this week.
Last weekend, I made the mistake of putting my leg in between two very big boats in rough waves on the Gulf. I won’t bore you with the details, and I’ll be the first to admit it wasn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done. Thankfully, nothing is broken, I’m just a bit bruised and restricted in my movements this week.
But, hey…let’s look at the bright side. I get to share a few über creative projects that you can easily make;)
Ordinary items re-purposed in fabulous ways that are better after
How many times have you passed random lone drawers on the side of the road?
I’ve never once thought…gee I could do something with those drawers! Let me stop and pile them in the back of my car.
Although, I kind of wish I had stopped.
Nope, I didn’t stop for piles of cabinet doors in our neighbor’s driveway either, when they were renovating their kitchen.
Although, I now wish I had. Because I can always use more ways to store and hang things.
Who knew a discarded knife block could be re-purposed into a crayon and art caddy?
How many uses can you think of for this handy gadget made from a wine cork and bungee cord?
I can think up a whole bunch of uses!
I’m not sure I’ll be able to look at another can of soda again without imagining the artistic potential that little aluminum can holds.
Or pass a chipped teapot at the thrift store without thinking about this darling re-purposed garden art in a pretty yard with flowers.
I want to be creative like this too, I really do!
Looking back on all 350+ posts and projects I’ve shared over the last 3 years I only found one creative re-purposed project.
It wasn’t nearly as creative as the ones I’ve shared above. But it turned out well, and you guys can easily re-purpose a glass container into a Nautical Rope Candle Holder. They look great in sets.
