My old prom shoes from when my fiancé and I went together. I painted the bottom of them with acrylic paint I had laying around and cleaned
I want these to be my wedding shoes! They had my size at lunch but I couldn't purchase from my iphone so when I went to buy tonight--they
Had this piece of wood I had from high school just laying around the house. Painted it then nailed white fabric tacs into it.
Nice touch in my mudroom. I went to the dollar store for the frames, I had the paint, and the cute little dog tail hangers are from Ikea!
Neat ideas for the home
For cute! I have so many old buttons laying around! I could make a million of them!
Painted Ikea dresser. I really want to paint our bedroom Ikea furniture in our new house....now to convince my fiancé.... :)
ReFab Diaries: Repurpose: New shirt from old "highwaters"! WOW!!! Wish I had thought of this years ago when my girls were little.
Our family name. I purchased extra large cardboard letters from Joann's last year and had the kids (and my husband and I) paint them.
For the Someday
Dang it. I had the bottom left tat in my head for months, and never found a picture of anything like it. Well, there went my idea.
I took an old brown dresser and night stand and painted them with white paint with primer-3 coats! Took red paint and a thin brush to make

Blue glass & Corks: I had one of my favorite blue glass mugs break! :( had them for over a decade. I usually always sip spiced mulled wine from them! ;) when it broke last night, I immediately clapped my hands w/ repurpose ideas! My favorite combo, Blue glass & my vast collected corks!

Placed it in my China/wine dinning room over the cigar box! ~Moe

Great solution for my jeans that are so frayed on the bottom that my husband is embarrassed when I wear them.
Clothes to Make
I had these when I was a lil girl...I wore red boots ...I pretended to fly around in my invisible plane. GREAT memories.
Thanks! I painted the inside of the ornament with Folkart acrylic paint.

For my boy

They needed at least 5 combinations of colors varying from dark to light for swirls. Then start adding them in layers (D to L)from the top of the sky, middle, to the bottom. They chose contrasting color combination for the foreground and tree branches. Last, gold paint to show direction of light
Remember these? Orange Corningware mixing bowls from the 1970s? I actually took them with me when I left home and still had them into the 2000s. :)
