Trash To Treasure Repurposing Projects

I love to see old things made into something altogether new. Repurposing is my favorite way to decorate these days. 

Now this girl is not wasting a thing! Of course her blog is all about being "green." It's called Totally Green Crafts.

Great use of an old beat-up table. An instant beverage bar.

I don't know about young girls of today. But in my day, this purse would have been considered very hip.

Oh, super cute!

Now this would be mighty handy for craft projects.

If you happen to run across some old game boards at a garage sale, just look what you can do with them!

Finally. Something to do with those old magazine pages you hate to toss.

Don't throw out those jars and bottles. Look at this kind of boho look these have been given.

A damaged door knob finds new life as a hose stake in the garden. And it even looks pretty!

Before you toss, give whatever it is a second look.


  1. Oh my goodness, these are so cute! I not only love to re-purpose things, but it is such a huge money saver! I love every one of these, but the suitcase is my favourite :)
    Hope you and the pups have a splendid week.

  2. What a fun post! I love that inspiration board! Hope you have a wonderful week, Brenda.

  3. This was delightful! I love, love those bottles.

  4. Such a cute roundup! I love all of these ideas.... and, I love recycled items! Great ideas! ((Now I'm trying to figure out which wall I could do the recycled wood pieces on?! Haha!))

  5. Some people have way more imagination than me. I love them all.

  6. Fun post with lots of great ideas. Love your new header!

  7. Love all of these ideas and my favorite is making the envelopes. Hope you are having a good day. Blessings, Carolyn in Florida

  8. So many truly creative people out there, aren't there? Thanks for sharing, Brenda!

  9. Fun ideas!

    I am heading over the the site of the first pic. I am back in the garage as a creative space and it might be fun to do a wall with strips of wood.

  10. These crafts are all so creative! I wish I was more crafty. I think I would be if I had a craft/sewing room or something.

  11. I'm in love with that drink bar thingy for my backyard! You could even do a longer table with several ice buckets :)



I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.
