31 Days: Repurposing

Whenever we move to a new home, we find ourselves repurposing objects.

A rug used for the front porch becomes just the thing needed in the laundry room.

A sofa table finds a new purpose as a front entry table.

You have to get creative with your belongings.

An office armoire now resides in the corner of the living room.

It became the perfect spot to hide a small television.

I needed a neutral-colored pillow for the entryway bench, so...

...I covered a pillow in this pretty dish towel and tied it up with twine.

Today's card was also repurposed! I stamped the focal point tree a few days ago, but didn't like it with anything. I painted the background and grass with Ranger Distress Stains, and wasn't sure that I liked the all.

I left it on my desk for a few days.

Today, I picked it up and thought "This little tree isn't so bad. It just needs a little love." {insert Charlie Brown voice here!}

I trimmed it down, paired it with some new colors, and totally repurposed it. Saved from the scrap pile!
