"I like to use up every bit of "otherwise-trash" that I possibly can," confesses Gwen on her blog, You Can Call Me Gwen. She goes on to explain, "This project uses plastic water bottle caps, small pieces of fabric, and leftover bits of embroidery thread and ribbon which may otherwise have been part of a landfill."
At Thrift Craft Love, Jess has been working on fixing up a craft room for herself. "I wanted to save some old metal cabinets that had been in my parents basement for more than 30 years," she tells us, and decided that she'd incorporate them into her craft room. While they offered terrific storage potential, the cabinets were pretty beat up, and completely mismatched!
Well, I have to say, I think this is the first gang-related rescue I've ever featured. Ha! Candice of The ReFab Diaries found this gang-tagged dresser outside her Chicago apartment building. In need of an inexpensive storage solution for the craft room she was making, she brought it in from off the street.
