    Repurposing inspiration!

    Today I was in the mood for repurposing inspiration!

    As The Captain and I go through boxes of my old stuff in an attempt to reorganize and redecorate our house in a way that reflects both of our personalities, a trip to a few DIY/crafty linky parties was in order.  

    What I found were more than a handful of ideas for items that are just sitting around boxes and the storage room just waiting to be turned into something fabulous.  I can't wait to start putting plans together and into action!

    Here are just a few of the projects that caught my eye . . . 

    Check it out! 

    A stunning lamp in my favorite color combination :) 

    Click on the photo to see how Danielle transformed
     a $4.99 Goodwill find into this stunning lamp!

    Thanks for the inspiration Danielle!


    Tamara of Etcetorize has cleverly repurposed a candle holder
     to organize and display her jewelry treasures.

    I am inspired by the way she has put everything together! As a buyer/seller of vintage costume jewelry, my personal stash of treasures is massive and in
    need of organization.  Since I love being surrounded by my "stuff", I also
    want it displayed in a unique and funky style.  I found it!

    Thank you Tamara . . . I love your style!!

    Check out these link parties/blog hops
     for more inspiration!
