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?

    1. Wow, you did a great job for your mirror; I thought you were going to transform it into a vintage look mirror and I never thought of making it a chalkboard. Have a great Friday!…:)

    2. I love the color that you painted the frame. And what a one of a kind piece that some lucky someone will get to own. Any ideas for repurposing a standard rectangle glass vanity mirror?

    3. This is great! I love the way you tied the chalk to the board…brilliant way to keep the chalk where it belongs! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours looks fabulous!

    4. Debbie, it is great looking. And shoot, I was thinking about that peeling paper! Did you consider keeping it…of course you did. Can’t wait to see what you do with it. You were right to want those hooks to place by the chalk board…a savings right there.
      Thanks for sharing, Helen

    5. Debbie,
      This coat rack is great! I love that you can jot down a message where everyone is sure to see it. I understand you dilemma of acquiring so many ‘possibilities’ . I have been MIA sorting through my stored treasures preparing for a yards ale this Saturday.
      Have a wonderful day!
      Your Friend,

    6. I never find cool “junk”, but I love how your repurpose things – I would never have thought to re-do a mirror like that – very cute!

      Have a wonderful weekend!

    7. Ohhh, this could be a fav for me. Also makes me wonder when I see something if I am looking at what *parts* I could take off to use. Nice job. Pinned.
