(all of these photos were taken with my phone~I’ve been too
crazy busy to grab the camera)
I’m wired for repurposing.
I don’t know when or how it happened. But when I see broken, damaged items at cheap prices I think about how I could use them. Heaps of
ideas junk started piling up fast.
Or so Barry says, I don’t notice the minor details the way he does.
So I got busy repurposing:
You can guess why I bought this
Hint: not because the paper was peeling off.
This year I have refreshed three old dressers. Two of them had mirrors. Here’s what I did with this one:
1. Remove Mirror
2. Prime the entire piece
3. Paint desired color
4. Paint with Chalkboard paint – the area you want to use as a chalkboard
5. Add hooks
I added a piece of chalk by wrapping with string and adding a little hot glue to secure to the chalk.
The possibilities are endless
What kind of
junk awesome stuff have you found and repurposed?
