Let Us Repurpose Stuff!

I found this great ideas on! ~ Angela

Old farmhouse window panes are great for all sorts of projects. Enlarging your favorite photo and placing it behind the frame is just one idea.

This chair makes a great flower stand. We all probably can find an unused chair around.  The best part of the design is using a great color of paint to make the chair pop.

How about using an old tool box for your pansies this fall?
