When Manda and her Mom refinished this gorgeous old bed frame, they ran into a little glitch: modern day mattresses are a little bigger than the ones this bed was made for. To solve that dilemma, they pulled out the old frame and slats and attached the headboard and footboard to a modern, metal frame. Manda was left with some aged wood and shared the way she repurposed some of it at Lost in the Found.

Over at Architecture of a Mom, Rachel's young daughter is going through something many of you are probably familiar with: an obsession with Disney's Frozen.

"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!
Over at Thrifty Treasures, Sara decided to turn some leftover items in the garage into a useful drop spot (otherwise known as a hall tree) for her entryway. She made use of old closet doors, trim, and other salvaged scraps.
When Rachel was finishing her attic, she had a dilemma: what to do with the odd space adjacent to her narrow attic stairwell? She decided that a set of shelves would create visual interest while maintaining the open feeling the small space needed, and blogged about the project at Maison de Pax.
Ever seen one of these before? These country-style hook shelves are easy to find in thrift shops and yard sales. Mindy from MyLove2Create had one sitting out in her shed, and what she did with it was featured at My Repurposed Life.
