A Day’s Worth of Inspiration – Recycle and Repurpose

The weekend is inching closer and closer, and I hope you’re going to be able to set aside a slot of time to re.Create – because I’ve uncovered some pretty fabulous projects that are definitely worth a try. It’s all in the name of another day of inspiration for recycled and repurposed design.

Can’t you just see yourself overflowing with inspiration as you sit in your very own beautiful button-backed chair. What? No buttons? Well first priority for you this weekend is a trip to your nearest thrift store! Or Etsy. Or Ebay.

If we sit still long enough, some of the recycled golf club wildlife that lives in the area will certainly pop in their curious little heads to catch some crumbs from our high tea scones.

Look over there in the garden – the scrap metal flowers are blooming!

I don’t know Anne of Green Gables very well, but she stops to ask if we’ve seen her repurposed book purse. She can’t seem to find it and she needs to get home to finish creating her very own rolled magazine page mirror frame.

I suggest that she look on the scrap wood nightstand in the bedroom, furthest down the hall and on the left.

But you mentioned seeing it on the repurposed LP end table in the living room.

“Oh thanks,” she said. “You’re both absolute recycled angels!”

There’s so much recycled and repurposed goodness in the world. So, you see, I hope you find that time this weekend to create something for your own home or garden.

Until next time…
