Repurposed Salt Lid "Star" Christmas Ornament

I just love making Christmas ornaments out of little bits and pieces I collect over the year. I store things away and then pull it all out this time to see what I can come up with for decorating, gift giving and selling in my booth.

Funky Fork Flowers...and More :)

I made these flowers from forks, faucet knobs and "fancy" bobbles a few years ago. If you are like me and have a hard time keeping the real ones alive...this idea might be an idea for you ;)
I tuck them in here and there for pops of color and whimsy...plus a couple of other plant stake ideas for fun.

An Old Ladder Re-purposed as a Bed Canopy

I've always dreamed of having a canopy bed...somewhere along the way it switched from "pink and frilly" to "neutral and junky". I am very happy with how it turned out.
My engineer husband very securely attached the brackets to the walls and the old ladder to the brackets...no worries :) Then I draped 2 matching painters drop cloths over 2 of the rungs of the ladder. That's it...easy!

My son's bedroom is REALLY small...so we decided to loft his bed to make more space. By re-purposing pallet racking and a metal corn crib ladder, we created a fun industrial vibe that will grow with him. He might even take it to college for his dorm room someday :)
