At her blog, Love Grows Wild, Liz has been sharing her patio makeover. One of the things she did to make the space feel more like a room was to hang some artwork on an exterior wall. Since the art would be outdoors, Liz decided to upcycle some old decor to create something she wouldn't feel bad about exposing to the elements.
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!
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.
