Enamelware...Repurposed

I love enamelware, so when I was at a garage sale recently, I couldn't pass up this enamelware pot. Although, when I got home, I got to thinking it might be an...uhhh...chamber pot. Which, when you think about it, is a little strange for a living room decoration. However, I'm fine with having a vintage toilet on display, despite the reality of the thing.

I decided to use it as a flower pot. I took a plant that was already in a basket that had a waterproof liner and just set it inside. That way, I can change my mind and use it somewhere else any time.
 
I love having flexible decorations. Who knows? Tomorrow, I might use it for something else...just not for a chamber pot.

What would you do with it?

UpCycled Blue Jeans Baskets

I thought this was a sweet little project to use throw-away blue jeans. These little "baskets" would be so cute in the office, in the play room, by the telephone to hold stuff...you name it! Check out the full post on Craftzine.com to see how to make them in a step-by-step tutorial. 


T2T Teapot Flowerpot

I love anything re-purposed to hold flowers. And Deborah Jean's teapot flowerpot is no exception. Check out this photo from her blog Deborah Jean's Dandelion House.

Thrifty Thursday- Pallet Headboard

In my area, people pick up wood pallets from free piles for firewood. Look at what this blogger did with one! It's the ultimate Thrifty Thursday idea.

Kim from Too Much Time on My Hands made her son a headboard for his bed.

What Would You Do Wednesday - Vintage Lunch Box

Today's WWYD comes from one of my readers. Aimee writes, "I have my “old” Holly Hobbie lunch box.  I would like an idea to decorate or reuse it a unique way.  Any ideas would be appreciated."

I had one of these lunch pails too, Aimee! Let's see if we can help Aimee figure out what to do with hers. I can't wait to read your comments. And if you have a photo of something you did with an old lunch box, feel free to send it via e-mail (see the contact tab) and I'll happily post ideas.

I imagine Aimee's lunch box might look something like this one:
or this...
I had this one...
So....WWYD?

Transformation Tuesday- Cabinet Makeover

Today's transformation comes from Kimba at A Soft Place to Land. She did a makeover on a piece of furniture that most of us would consider trash. Check out her full post to see just how she turned this piece into a treasure.

Happy 4th of July!

In honor of Independence Day, I thought I'd share some awesome Americana projects from some otherT2T blogs.

Here's a recycled soda can project from Out of the Crayon Box. Check out the post to see the tutorial.

I love this inviting porch from Second Chances by Susan. Her full blog post has lots of Americana inspiration.
And here's a great way to use up extra ribbon scraps and scrapbook papers from Surviving Motherhood.



Friend Friday- Link Your Blog

It's been weeks since I had a Friend Friday, so it's about time I give you a chance to show off your blog. We want to see your latest favorite post. 

I love this project that I found on In My Own Style this week. Can you believe this garden hurricane is made from an old broomstick, a tuna can, and a thrift shop candle holder?

Check out the full post on Diane's blog to see how you can make one (or several) of your own.

Now it's your turn. What do you have to show and tell about?
The fine print: Please link directly to a specific blog post, not your home page. And, please no links to Etsy stores or advertising or I'll have to delete those. Otherwise...no strings attached. Your post does not have to be T2T related to be a T2T friend.
