At Marisa Howard Design, Marisa shares the reason cottage style is so important to her, saying, “I spent a great deal of my childhood at my grandparents cottage up in Georgian Bay.  My husband grew up cottaging as well so it was natural that we designed our bedroom to remind us of cottage living.”  So it was only natural that the two of them could repurpose an old door into a cottage style headboard.

Karen at Redoux Interiors is used to making over furniture that is old, broken, or otherwise unloved.  This time, however, her project started with a piece of furniture that was actually new–shocking, I know!  Friends of hers that own rental properties passed on this new bathroom vanity that they had decided not to use during a recent remodel.

Nicole blogs at The Felted Fox.  She says, “When we recently replaced our home’s water supply pipe with copper, my husband had several 1 foot pieces of copper pipe left over. Instead of throwing it in the recycling bin, I repurposed the pieces into useful, pretty vases.”
