Piano Bench

*Project by Crystal @ Crystals Craft Spot for the Repurposed challenge of season 12* It started with this broken chair and ended up with an adorable bench for my piano (okay its a keyboard but piano sounds better) It took some hammering, pulling, sanding, painting, and stapling.  It was well worth the effort.  I love the end result.  The paint, padding (an old egg shell mattress cover), and fabric were all from my stash. Love when that … [Continue reading...]

Door Knob Wagon

*Project by ChiWei @ One Dog Woof for the Repurposed challenge of season 12* Ahhh, the joys of an old house - lead paint, leaky windows, and old doorknobs.  For this project, I went through the house and thought about the stuff we don't use, so I could meet the theme for this week while spending as little as possible.  A couple of years ago, we scoured the local flea markets to find glass doorknobs for all our doors, and we had a couple sets … [Continue reading...]

Manly Pillow Covers

*Project by Erin @ Erin’s Creative Energy for the Repurposed challenge of season 12* This week I re-purposed my husband's dress shirts that he can no longer wear into manly pillow covers. I have been trying to figure out a great way to reuse my husband's dress shirts.  One had ring around the collar and the other a small grease stain that wouldn't come out.  The shirts are made of great material and I just couldn't throw them away or donate … [Continue reading...]

I have a whole bunch of these that I have been hoarding saving.  I had put them to good use in … [Continue reading...]

Crazy Quilt Kindle Cover

*Project by Chrissy @  There are UFO’s under my stairs for the Scrappy challenge of season 12* Nothing says scraps to me more than Crazy Quilting, a technique that was all the rage in Victorian times. It was a way to use up odd shaped pieces of fabric from making clothing or other household sewing projects, as well as a way to show off intricate needlework as each seam was covered with embroidery or embellishments like lace and … [Continue reading...]

Pant Hem Zippered Pouch

*Project by Meg  @ Mega Crafty for the Scrappy challenge of season 12* Whenever I can use scraps in a project it makes me pretty happy. But when I can make an entire project out of something I would have thrown away, I get downright giddy. I feel like I've made something out of nothing and wound up with a little bonus that shouldn't have been included as part of the deal. These two zippered pouches are made from the material leftover after … [Continue reading...]
