From Trash to Treasure


I recently found some great trash to treasure ideas from Country Living.  This vintage metal tole tray was outfitted with a sawtooth hanger and now acts as a magnetic mini-message center.


How clever!  Custom-cut mirrors were glued into old tennis rackets to add character to this wall.


Cut up an older sweater to create a cozy for a hanging pendant.  A little hot glue goes a long way.


This piece of modern art was created from about 100 plastic spoons hot-glued to a frameless mirror. 


Use your collections to create artistic displays of the things you love.  Vintage yardsticks were used to spice up this simple side table.


An $8 clock kit from Michaels can elevate a simple cookie tin lid like this one. 


An old oar becomes a quirky curtain rod and adds interest to this stair landing.




Hope these ideas inspire you to create your own treasures!
