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!

I heart Country Living.


Oooh cool! I have one of those tin plates, that I just couldn’t bear to get rid of. I now have a great idea for repurposing it.
