New Uses For Old Things
I love "old" things! I also am a firm believer in finding new uses for old things when it comes to decorating. I find it fun to go through my drawers and closets and find something that I find beautiful but just either didn't know what to do with it or had no place for it. This is where the real fun begins! I try to think of new ways the item can be used. I think you will be amazed at what you come up with! So bring it out, dust it off, and put on your creative "thinking cap" and see what new uses you can find for old items in your home! (The pics were taken in our guest powder room.)
An old saucer serves as a candle holder and another old china piece holds qtips!
A old china bowl becomes a container for guest ammeneties.
This is a better pic of the china bowl-if you enlarge it you can see the beautiful detail.
Old china plates become decorative wall art. An embroidered napkin my Grammy did many years ago becomes a picture. I put it in a pressed flower frame I made. The "ties"that are holding the greenery above the mirror are old candle rings!
I would love to hear about what ideas you come up with!
