10 Unusual RePurposed Items that are also Useful

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.
