I just love turning the 50 states into artwork! This fun piece of art from Kristi at I Should Be Mopping the Floor not only features the state of Texas, it was made using several things that could have been tossed in the trash. This is some pretty fine recycling!
Looking for a cute gift for the teacher? This gift made by Teryn from Vintage Romance Style was recently featured at Tatertots & Jello. It makes use of a glass jar and other craft supplies that you might already have on hand.
This old stool was languishing at a garage sale, unsold. Needless to say, Holly walked away with it for free and blogged about it’s transformation at McCall Manor.
Karen blogs at Flimsy Pi. Lately she’s needed a small table for her reading room, but when she couldn’t find the size of table she was looking for, Karen decided to use materials on hand to make one instead. That’s where some shutters Karen received from a friend came in.
Kerri blogs over at Keep Calm and KERRI On. Recently while at an estate sale, she found this vintage metal lunchbox for $3. (Who else remembers these lunch boxes? They were made to last!)
Eileen blogs at Yes Missy. When sandal season began, she pulled out an old pair of wedge sandals. Although they still had a lot of life in them, Eileen wasn’t in love with the fabric straps.
Katie from The Casual Craftlete shares a cute repurposing project that is inexpensive and will help keep a child busy this summer. Sweet! This one started with the small wooden box that was packaging for one of the toys her daughter got for Christmas. Finding it hard to toss good wood, Katie had saved it.
“If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know I have an addiction for recycling old paint buckets,” says Ama at OhOh Blog. But when you see the stylish side tables she’s going to show you, you’ll have a hard time believing that they started out as paint buckets!
