Top 10 Repurposed Projects


Nothing brings me greater joy & peace in the decorating world than repurposing does.  First, the thrill of the hunt for something thrifty (sometimes I like to search my basement or closets first).  Then, the brainstorming.  That’s the REALLY fun part for me.  It actually relaxes me, and takes me to a different world.  I do my best brainstorming in the shower, in the car while driving, and right before I fall asleep.  I try to think outside the box and figure out ways to use the thrifted or old item that will be useful and/or decorative in our home.  Lastly, the actually transformation can be just as exciting.  Not everything works out the way you planned 😯 , but that’s okay.  At least we tried, and will keep trying.  I hope you are inspired to try repurposing after you read about our “Top 10 Repurposed Projects” from the “All Things Creative Team”…

First, here is my latest repurposed project.  You won’t believe what I put in the drawer to make this happen.  So, you’re actually getting a 2 for 1 repurposing project here:

    Hi Julie,
    You are the most creative person I know. You inspire me to look around and see beyond for creating something I have found at a resale store of even what I already have at home.
    You definitely have a gift, I love all of your creations above but especially your nightstand.
    Thanks for sharing, Ann

    I have found myself very fond of your TV tray makeover because I happen to need one! The only way I can choose a favourite after I got over my snit for being ineligible for the vintage lights giveaway just because I happen to be Canadian, bwahahaha. Very good ideas as I usually expect from your site. Visions are dancing without the sugar fairies. Enjoy your summer.

    Fabulous! I love everything about this. Wow, you are talent.

  12. ColleenB. says:

    I must say; I do love seeing everyone’s make overs and just seeing how everyone’s mind works.
    Now, if I just knew what to do with my old microwave. Wanted to turn it into a mailbox but hubby didn’t think too much of that idea.
    Any creative minds out there on what to do with a old, broken microwave. (the landfill is no option) (Oh, I do plan on removing all the electrical guts out of it)

  13. Heather says:
