I’m always seeing something and saying to myself: Why on earth didn’t I think of that?
Flea market decorating is quite popular, and for good reason. You can find something cheap, then repurpose it for your home. I love repurposed hacks!
Let’s take a look at some very clever repurposed hacks I’ve discovered online.
I love this cute suitcase side table. Add wooden legs to wood and then attach it to the bottom of the suitcase. Instant side table!
It gives this bedroom a funky vintage vibe.
The industrial-style look is a hot commodity right now. And growing in popularity.
An old vintage box has been repurposed as a shelf to use in any space in your home.
Sedum and succulents are very in vogue. And so is the galvanized look. Coupled together this is a very nice potted plant display.


Got an old globe you no longer want? Remove the globe from its base and use the base to create a paper towel holder.

The fit is perfect and the look is fantastic in any style kitchen.


I love this DIY project with a metal cow attached to a board with stenciled wording added to it. Adorable! I especially love the cow sign.


This is such a cute project for spring. A painted muffin tin with spring-related objects that have been glued inside.

Hang it up and create a spring vignette to accent your wall project.
This repurposed project is a great budget storage piece. Vintage cake pans were used to DIY a tiered display piece.

  1. And Brenda as we get older old injuries and surgeries just keep on nagging us. I am older than you are and have found it no fun to have aches and pains. One boot in five years…nutty. One a year seems like it should be. Love those hacks. Take care. Sheila

  2. I just pulled out one of my vintage suitcases to house a generic American Girl doll and her accessories. It's not real creative, but it works! I hope your foot's feeling better and you're enjoying the sunshine. It's still snowing in MN. Boo!

  3. These are awesome ideas. I love each and every one. I hope your foot feels better soon. Some issues never go away…we just have to forge on because we do have that mental energy.


  4. Neat ideas! I'm sorry about your problems re: the foot and ankle. I get so frustrated with insurance ~ someone sitting at a desk making a decision about a subject they know nothing about! They're certainly not medically trained. If you have any issues about a new boot, fight the negative decision if that happens!
