All of us here at All Things New Again have that one favorite thing we keep an eye out for when we go treasure hunting.
I can never pass up a cute little table.
My mom is all about the vintage plates and tea cups.
My dad has never met a crusty, rusty tool or piece of hardware he didn’t like. (The crustier and rustier the better.)
“What are you going to do with that?” my mom and I always ask him.
And he always comes up with a clever up cycling idea!
Look at what he did with a vintage hand drill he found somewhere. He attached it to this cute little table that my mom painted and decoupaged with paper napkins. It’s the perfect project to feature for February’s Up cycle Sharin’ Challenge! Our theme this month is Hardware. See below for how you can enter to win a $100 gift card from our sponsor D. Lawless Hardware.
Up cycle Sharin’ Challenge
Up cycle Sharin’ is a Facebook community with 50,000+ members dedicated to all things re-used and re-purposed. I’m one of the admins along with a group of awesome bloggers who come up with the best up cycling ideas. Check out their blogs.
