Pennies. It always seems like I have too many of them, whether scattered in random corners of the house or jangling in my purse. Luckily, Kristen of My Covered Bridge found the perfect way to use too many pennies: by turning them into a statement art piece!
Lisa blogs at Grey Luster Girl. When her dad gave her an XL striped gray polo shirt he’d never worn, she knew it was meant for more than sitting in a man’s closet. So Lisa decided to refashion it into a cute, feminine bow shirt.
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.
When Michelle from Delicate Construction finished a craft project using Duck Tape, she didn’t throw away the empty cardboard rolls. Instead, she looked at them and thought, “Why not make a bracelet?”
Sarah blogs at Pretty Providence about all kinds of ways to save money. When she found these white straight leg jeans at a thrift store, she knew she could use them to get the popular mint skinny jeans look for less.
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.
Jen blogs at IHeart Organizing. Although her desk drawer was once beautifully organized with acrylic drawer dividers, she decided to use the drawer dividers in her vanity instead. And five months later, her desk drawer needed some love.
At Savvy Young Something, Sarah bought a solid wood white desk on Craigslist shortly after moving into a new house. She admitted that the desk needed a lot of work, but sat in her basement for about five months. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to let projects sit on the back burner sometimes!
