Bed & Breakfast has gone to the dogs! Lately all the rage is about going green and giving new life to discarded items so as I was thumbing through the pages of a well-loved older issue of Country Home Magazine November 2008, I was thrilled to see an article that walks you through repurposing old chairs into a fabulous dog bed and how to transform a toile tray into a custom feeder tray with room for dog food bowl and water bowl. Directions here.
Aren’t these chairs amazing? Suzie Stanford of Melbourne, Australia, creates these amazing chairs from vintage and discarded tea towels and tapestries. I follow some blogs where the writers write about their love and even obsession for collecting vintage linens and I too share this passion! So, here we go then, imagaination is the key to eveyrthing and when repurposing flea market finds and vintage treasures, why not transform them into art!
Do you ever wonder what to do with a teapot or coffee pot that are missing their lids? Just because a lovely piece of china is not complete or has some damage does not mean it is ready for the trash but rather it can become part of your home décor and actually be repurposed into a useful lamp or pincushion.
