stories from the wilderness of everyday life

Repurpose, Reuse, Reframe, Rethink

 

Start with what is and create what will be. 


I found a wonderful old gate at a vintage sale in Indianapolis this weekend, and knew immediately what it wanted to be.

 

After bringing it home, I strung it with lights.  

 

 

I painted small clothespins first in color, then with a wash of white.

 

 

Each of these were used to clip on photos I've taken of family and scenery from the past few months.

 

 

And voila - a quirky photo display that adds awesome character to our living room.

 

 

 

Look around.  That item on the shelf that's been collecting dust - what else could you do with it?  

I'm curious - let me know how you plan to repurpose something in your home (or perhaps already have!).

Or perhaps you have an old thought, a way of seeing your job or your "have-tos", that needs to be revisited.  Shake things up - dust it off, and hang a few lights on it.  (Twinkle lights always help you to see things in a more beautiful light.)

Always start with what is...then create what will be.

 

Leave a comment below - let me know - how will you re-think, re-purpose, re-use, or re-start today?

 

Namaste.
