Courtney hates letting things go to waste. As she says at A Diamond in the Stuff, "If I think that I can come up with a use for it, I’ll hold onto it. Sometimes for a very long time." Hmmm . . . I'm sure none of us can identify with that at all, right? After a sewing table project, Courtney had a ton of leftover yard stick remnants. And of course she couldn't just throw them away (of course) so she turned them into a yard stick serving tray!
Today's rescue comes from Melanie of Making it in the Mitten. She loves entertaining outside during the summer, and this year she decided "we needed a space to place food and beverages while we are outside." Her husband grabbed a couple of free pallets from work, and they used them to build an outdoor bar!
Erin a HUGE fan of summer, and loves that it's time to "change out the backpacks and lunchboxes for beach towels and sunscreen." This year she is making a "Summer Basket" to keep in her mudroom. The medicine cabinet "is upstairs, and not so convenient for dripping wet children coming in from the slip-n-slide for a band-aid." An old wire basket is volunteering for duty at The Organized Life.
