Once upon a time, Amy from Giggleberry Creations stumbled across a blog featuring a TV cabinet that was repurposed into a play kitchen. She loved the idea and sent the link on to her mom and sisters but later forgot about it. But at her two-year-old daughter’s birthday party, Amy’s mom and dad surprised everyone with an exciting gift!
Amy from Mod Podge Rocks recently scored a sweet little jewelry box at Goodwill. As soon as she saw it, she thought of the perfect way to give it a fresh new look with some Mod Podge and resin.
At The Crafted Sparrow, Rebecca was in the process of giving her craft room a makeover, so she saved tin cans to help her organize supplies. She had planned on painting them, but came up with an even better idea!
At Redhead Can Decorate, the 1969 crib Julie and her siblings slept in as babies had been sitting in her attic, not meeting safety requirements for use, but waiting, dreaming of the day Julie would repurpose it into…wait for it…an American flag!

Over at 21 Rosemary Lane, Barbara has been looking for ways to decorate her back patio without using glass. Since the patio floor is concrete, glass decor is an accident waiting to happen. Inspiration for a nautical vase came from an unlikely source, as Barbara shares, “Last week the kids and Chris polished off one of those big containers of pretzels, but I wouldn’t let them toss out the actual container…I had an idea.”
Wilma blogs at By Wilma. When she wanted a new strap for her camera, she found inspiration at the thrift store! A braided leather belt turned out to be just what she was looking for to create a new strap.
Over at Evolution of Style, Jenny had a Craigslist dresser in need of some love. “The bottom drawer did not work very well at all, and veneer was chipping off,” she admitted.
Having seen lots of cute (but expensive) serving trays floating around the web, Hannah from Lovely Little Life was excited to find a few forgotten wooden trays at Goodwill, and bought them for a fraction of the price she would have paid elsewhere! She took on the challenge of making this one as cute as the trays she’d seen online.
