It’s hard finding things to blog about that are repurposing-related. I want to find ideas that are truly USEFUL to you or your home, and not just some art stuck on the wall. (Which, yes, has a purpose…but you know what I mean.) Second, I am looking for projects or items that are atypical. I see lots of crates used as containers or shelves- perfect uses for those…but kinda expected.
Well…finally! I have compiled a list of 10 sites that feature unusual repurposed items that are also useful. For brevity, I didn’t include every picture. However, there is a title before each link. If it intrigues you, click it! Enjoy the pictures.
