I’m a sucker for sentimental value. So, it makes my heart happy when someone is able to find a new use for an old thing.
It was love at first sight when I saw this charming ship helm turned into a front door wreath.
Buy you a drink? This trendy little outdoor bar had a former life as a sewing table.
So many vintage treasures went into creating this potting bench turned outdoor kitchen.
Now, I tend to lack vision when it comes to dreaming up new uses for old things. So, not only have I curated a collection of over 120 ideas from Hometalk,
but, I turned to two ladies who are authors on the subject, and them some, for inspiration.
Susan is serious about creating a home on a dime, chocolate and cheese. But more than being thrifty, Susan has set out to edit her life to make room for the people and things she cares about most. Susan also recently released an e-book, called ” The Heart Improvement Project: 5 Tips to Help you Overcome the Obstacles in Your Live and Live the Life you Crave.”
Cristin is also an author, who recently published her book, “Live Simple, Free and Happy.” This is a DIY lifestyle book that gives you tips for taking control of your time, money and home.
Cristin and Susan are joining me today on “After Class” with Mrs. Hines, a live show on G+ where I team up with fellow bloggers and resident experts to talk all things Home & Garden. I’m so excited that they were both available today!
Please tune in for more inspiration on repurposing, upcycling, thrifting and so much more…
And for more great inspiration on repurposing:
Sherry at Pondered.Primed.Perfected has curated a collection of ideas for old windows, doors and drawers.
See you in class,
