Reuse, Repurpose, Relove

Repurposed DIY For Everyone!

I’ve heard it from so many different people…and I’ve said it myself! “I wish I could…”

I’d like to showcase some repurposed DIY designs I’ve collected that I think anyone and everyone could do – and do well! It won’t be hard to find the supplies, either. Not only will you feel the elation of creation, you’ll also be warm and fuzzy in your heart – knowing that you’re helping to save the Earth, one repurposed project at a time.

So, no more “I wish I could…”. Next time it’s just “I could.”

If you are looking for loads of repurposed DIY inspiration, check out this Pinterest board with over 500 unique ideas at every level.

Until next time…

    for the bookshelves, if you place the bracket going upwards and stack on other books, they appear to be floating!

    Love the book shelves! We have to try this! And the apple crates remind me of working on my grandparents' orchard. I always thought they were rustic and gorgeous – would have never thought to hang them this way. –

    Sorry, new to site and DIY … the site with the apple crates is in German … how would I do this project? I love it, but, again, I am new and need instructions for everything, I guess! Thanks!

    Hey Anonymous – I'm pretty sure she just painted them with these fab colors and then turned them sideways and screwed them into the wall. You'll need proper screws, possibly with the plastic wall plugs to hold them secure since you'll want to put some things in the crates once they are mounted to the wall. Now the trick is to find some crates!

    I just love those book shelves! Since I actually have a ton of old books I inherited when a great aunt died, this may actually be something I can actually do without having to buy anything. It's a crafter's dream!

    Where could I get apple crates for cheap? I love that idea for my laundry room for a place my kids can put their shoes when we come in from the garage! Thanks!

    the flowers on the walls, what are those made of…i love all of the ideas, just need a little direction i guess!

  • Blue Velvet Chair

    The flowers on the wall…can you believe that they are paper cupcake liners? They are held with thumbtacks in the center. Isn't it divine?

    Thanks! I want everyone to know that recycled and repurposed creativity is within reach for everyone. Glad you enjoyed.

    Thanks for the great ideas. I just pinned your "book" shelf image onto Pinterest to spread word of you there.
